Two amazing stories…for completely different reasons

Who among us could’ve handled this week’s Georgia school situation in such an amazingly cool and collected fashion?  Countless lives were saved by Antoinette Tuff Tuesday…now the question is, how did such a mentally unstable person get their hands on an AK-47 type weapon & 500 ROUNDS of ammo!?!?!

And here’s a much less harrowing story I keep forgetting to mention on-air this week…have you heard about the kid who hit home runs in 11 straight at-bats!?!  Whoa, I never hit 11 home runs in my entire baseball career!  Not at The Little League World Series, but the next best place: Cooperstown, apparently!  Pretty amazing…not sure why they kept pitching to him, though – if he hit 2 homers off me, I would definitely walk him after that!
