Softball

I was never much for sports when I was a kid. I was a bookworm. Generally the one that got picked on until my mid-teens. By that time, I hung with the stoners, doing the fun things that stoners do. That combined with the fact that I was crazy as hell, nobody fucked with me after awhile. Once I was drunk, I didn’t give a shit how big you were, I was more than happy to oblige if you wanted a fight, and I rarely lost.

Anyhow, back on track. My parents weren’t much into sports either, so I just followed right along the path. I was still pretty young when my son was at the age to start getting into that stuff, so he is alot like us. He played soccer one year, and spent several years involved in the martial arts. Enough to become a 2nd degree black belt anyhow. The school he was involved with closed, and interest in that just sort of faded. Since he’s been in High School, he has played several sports, but mostly so that he can hang with his friends.

Anna, however, is different. She has been into Gymnastics, and Cheerleading, and this year, she has just started to play Softball. She is having a pretty good time, most of the time, but she has never played before. I won’t go so far to say that she sucks, and she is certainly NOT the worst player on her team. At the beginning of the season, she was hitting ok, but she has lost her timing. Hasn’t hit a fucking ball in a couple of weeks. I picked up a practice T at Wally World the other day, but so far it doesn’t seem to be doing any good. So today, after I got home from work, I took her up to the practice fields, figuring that it being Easter Sunday, nobody would be there.

I was correct. We had the place to ourselves. I think we were up there for about an hour or so, maybe longer. It was pretty cool. I think that I had more fun than she did. Should have been doing this shit years ago. She enjoyed it all, except for the part where we changed places, and I gave her a chance to rest her arms, and catch for awhile while I batted the balls out to her. It was ok until a grounder popped up and caught her on the shoulder and the cheek. After about ten minutes of crying, and me refusing to take her home, we swapped back out, and she had a great time. Actually hit a few balls too. Hell, if she can hit the shit that I throw, she should be able to hit the pitches that her coach throws. I think that today was probably more of a moral booster for her than any real practice. She has a game tommorow night, and I think that she is looking forward to it. Last week at this time, she was almost in tears and wanted to quit. I am a firm believer that once you start something, you FINISH the job, and I want my kids to learn this too.

Overall, since I have been up three hours prior to the crack of dawn, I am pretty damn tired. It wouldn’t be so bad but my wife kept me up until almost midnight. I know it is her fault, because she is the one with the boobs. In that respect, I guess I am still a teenager. Who the fuck needs fancy lingerie and lotions and candles and shit. Hell, just show me some boobs. So much for foreplay.

  • What a disgusting and cowardly piece of vile garbage this guy is! I would love to know where his trailer is located so that I could go and pay him a little visit…
    You don’t hit women, PERIOD, you son of a bitch!!!

  • The fact that she is a soldier has no bearing on what a horrible sub-human Troy has revealed himself to be. Nor do I need to be a black person or a soldier to be absolutely enraged at the piece of brainless human excrement he is. The fact is, I’m just a pale white guy, but a-holes like this make my blood boil. There is no punishment too severe for semi-human scum like this ignorant waste of oxygen. Let us hope he becomes the favorite girlfriend for some lonely prison inmates somewhere.
    I also hope she wins ownership of his business, assuming his form of trash is capable of having a business that is actually worth anything.
    I am amazed and dissappointed if it is true that nobody came to the assistance of the victim during the assault. I haven’t seen any press reports that actually state that, however, so I’ll reserve final judgement on the witnesses.

  • It’s difficult for some white folks to accept the fact that the US has a black president. But to take his disappointment out on a female is just disgusting. Wonder if he has a wife. If so, he’s probably a wife beater. It shows that he’s a loser, an intimidator, and has no respect for women. Someone should give him that same beat down. Better yet, boycott his business and show him where it really hurts.

  • decided to give Troy a call and informed him that I hoped he rots in jail. thanks for posting the phone number.

  • AS DISGUSTING AS THIS CRIME WAS THE LACK OF REACTION FROM OTHERS TO PULL THIS ASSHOLE OFF OF MS HILL IS JUST AS BAD. HOW THE HELL DO YOU STAND BY AND WATCH SUCH VIOLANCE, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH OUR COUNTRY!!! THE PRESIDENT CAN’T EVEN TALK TO OUR SCHOOL KIDS, WHEN WE HAVE COLLEGE STUDENTS PAYING THIRD WORLD COUNTRY KIDS TO WRITE THERE PAPERS FOR THEM, ARE WE SCARED THAT BLACK BOYS AND GIRLS MAY LISTEN AND STAY IN SCHOOL AND ACTUALLY ASPIRE TO DO GREAT THINGS, WE ARE NOT ALL GANG BANGERS AND THUGS, WHEN ARE WE GOING TO RELIZE THAT OUR WAY OF LIFE AND OUR FREEDOMS ARE THE ISSUES AT HAND TODAY! NOT THE FUCKIN COLOR OF OUR SKIN ITS TIME TO WAKE UP PEOPLE OUR EARTH OUR COUNTRY OUR FREEDOM , NOT OUR COLOR !!! WAKE UP .SCORN DUMB ASSES LIKE TROY DALE!!! HOW DUMB IS HE ? DID HE EVEN FINISH SCHOOL!!! FUCKIN RETART!!!

  • So, I will be giving his number out to everyone on my server in World of Warcraft tonight. Thousands are on at any point in time.

  • Any man in the restaurant that did not stand up and do something to stop this as it was happening is pathetic. I wish I was there to help because I would have ended it quicker than it started. When I talked about this story with my 3 boys (ages 17, 14 & 7) they all asked why didn’t anyone step in and help. When my 7 year old asks that question I am proud of him but embarrassed for the women in that community that have to live with a bunch of “sit down, insert thumb up ass pussies” like that. Not a court in the land would convict you of boot fucking that moron in the defense of a lady.
    Sadly this prick will probably end up doing time in a prison already overloaded with dimwitted white supremacist sausage jockey’s and it will be just like livin’ at home when he was young. “Bend over and touch your feet. Holy moly, all the meat you can eat”

  • I have a five year old, and I kills me to think how scared her daughter must have been while this was going on. I hope something is done about this asshole in the judicial system–i hope! shouldn’t he be getting more charges since he attacked a US soldier? or doesnt’ that count because she’s not in a body bag, she’s a woman and black?

  • The news report I read today said that the manager of Cracker Barrel attempted to go between the two and that other people offered assistance to the lady. Just a response because I saw that several people were outraged that nobody helped. I’ve eaten at a Cracker Barrel before and I know that in the restaurant area you don’t even see the entrance/exit area so most of the people probably didn’t even know something had happened. If anyone did sit by and allow that to happen then they are cowards just like him.
    All that aside only a complete racist idiot coward would hit a woman. One of the many reasons I avoid doing business in or traveling to Georgia. I read also that some of the charges were dropped, another example of stupid racism in Georgia, they’re probably thinking, “he just punched a black lady, whats the problem?”. The saddest part about all of this is that when his business fails and he goes to jail, he won’t sit around thinking “what I did was really messed up and wrong”, he’ll be with his other racist idiot friends saying “it’s because of Obama and all those black people that all this bad stuff happened to me!”. I’ve seen the type before and you can’t teach ignorant idiots.

  • I don’t think its fair to blame Georgia, I don”t care what state you live in….it has some morons in it. That said, What he did was horrible and under no circumstance should a man ever strike a woman. Yeah, the guy is obviously a racist and not much of an asset to the human race. Hopefully he’ll get the punishment that he deserves.

  • I agree with you. I’m from Georgia and while I’m just a hometown redneck there are plenty of people here that aren’t racist and are probably much more polite and gentle than anywhere else in the country I have been to.
    Racism knows no state boundaries and as far as criminals and other sundry douchebags like West…they are everywhere.

  • It’s easy to say that a real man would have jumped in, but it’s very different to witness this kind of violence which always terrifies every witness. Of course I thought everyone in Georgia had a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Are they legal to use on other white people down there?

  • It’s not that different. Having worked in restaurants for the last 22 years I’ve gotten in between several fights and had to have several people locked up. Some people just seem to be able to react to emergency situations while others have to sit out in disbelief.

  • I just read that as well, Bob. Thanks for the update. At least someone stepped in.
    I do know that 7:30PM is a pretty peak time for restaurants and having also been in many Cracker Barrels (just sampling the competition, hehe) the entrance way/store/cash register area is usually pretty crowded during peak times.
    As many people were willing to step forward to make statements to police you would think some of these “eye witnesses” might have stepped in a bit earlier.

  • While this is sad… I’m not at all surprised. Not that this is a race issue alone but a race and gender issue. This woman should not have gotten beaten like this for any reason. However the feminist movement in this country has made it such that men have no respect for women at all. It’s also made it so that there are systems in place to keep fathers from raising their children and boy children need their fathers. This leads to boys growing up to be man-children instead of men. Also this culture of litigiousness makes it damn near impossible to assist someone without the fear of being sued. Add to that the fact that racial tensions are at an all time high since the election of President Obama… and you begin to understand why no other man assisted this woman. I hate that her daughter was there to witness it though.
    I know that i’d have intervened in this situation because i’ve done it before. However I can definitely see why this happened. This is exactly what happens when you allow a small group of women to determine what men should be. Again… I think that this situation is horrific and the man should be arrested but you cannot tell me that if we had ‘men’ in this country that this would have happened.
    First of all the man would have respected her simply on the strength that she’s a woman and is thus deserving of at least that respect. Secondly the man would have had enough respect for himself to walk away as opposed to allowing his anger to control him. Third the other men in the establishment would have intervened IMMEDIATELY once the verbal abuse started. Simply put if we were allowed to have actual men in this country this situation would have never occurred.

  • Does Troy also own the Blue Skies Environmental Landfill in Poulan? If so, he operated it without a license for 11 years. i wonder if that’s still the case. If so, might want to contact the EPA. http://www.worthcountyboc.com/include/BOC-Minutes/08-21-2008.pdf
    I called Blue Skies Environmental 229-776-6116 The phone does not accept incoming calls (suspicious)
    I also called him at home (229) 776-6105 it goes to voice mail.

  • that bastard cocksucker Georgian shithkicker gonna get is hillbilly ass enlarged while serving that is a certanty

  • that bastard cocksucker Georgian shithkicker gonna get is hillbilly ass enlarged while serving that is a certanty

  • I do not believe for one minute that what is being reported is what actually transpired. I think this woman copped a major attitude and DID spit in his face and acted as most “Yo what Up” blacks act like and he reacted accordingly. Her mistake, like many others of her kind is that she thought once again that she would get away with her ethnic rudeness. She was wrong. Bet she will shut her mouth and keep her body fluids to herself next time…

  • Jonesie, you seriously sound like a racist twat yourself. All blacks do NOT have that stereotypical “ghetto” mentality. Where did you read she spit in his face?? That seems to be a bit far fetched-unless she had a death wish, I don’t think any woman in her right mind would spit in that big fat oaf’s face. Thank you for letting this board know EXACTLY how disgusting and racist you are. Pigs like you perpetuate the gross views in this country today. For you to condone a man kicking and punching a woman while she’s down on the floor says LOADS about you. Karma is a bitch.

  • I’ve added this bastard’s business number to my facebook, myspace, and live journal, as well as a site called albanyfriends.com.
    I’m a white guy – born and raised in Albany, but no longer live there.
    I’d like the punch this guy…repeatedly. He reminds me of why I left South Georgia and have no intention of returning.

    Please jump off of something very tall. Twice.

  • This bastard should have his limbs chopped off so he will never touch another person again. .send him to my country.. we will teach the motherfucker how to respect women..

  • Actually, West did tell police that she spit in his face but it wasn’t corroborated by any of the witnesses. It’s in the AJC story I linked to in my update yesterday.
    That having been said even if it’s true and she spit on him there is still no excuse for his behavior.

  • so we as men are supposed to lay down as cowards when we get spit on?if people would watch their own kids and keep to themselfs the wouldnt bring crap onto themselfs..dont know her or him dont care bout either but some smart ass batch want to say that to me she will get an ear full also who cares bout her damm kid ,if raised properly she wouldnt have to say that to the man

  • Nine…uh yeah. No excuse for a man to beat up a woman, no matter what the provocation, and, uh, the only person who says she spit on him was West. Maybe he has special spit detecting eyes the rest of humanity–or actually, just humanity–is not blessed with.
    Cracker

  • Giving her an earful is an entirely different world than what West dished out. Whether she is a smart ass or not or even if she did spit on him that’s still no excuse for his yellow douchebag behavior. I would like to think his mother taught him better than that but apparently not since she’s defending him in interviews.

  • FYI, he is not a wife beater. Nor does he have no respect for women.
    You know nothing and assume much.
    Another thing that you don’t know is that his business is the only reliable and decent one for what he does in a very rural area. He has employees and more than one family depending on his business. Any idiot that thinks that the perfect revenge is putting him out of business needs some fucking sense. That’s no solution and this is not the economy to put someone out of work just ’cause you feel like it.

  • Wow. What a display of ignorance and hatred. You obviously know nothing about Georgia to make the comments that you did and if you think everyone here is racist/stupid/ignorant/whatever you are more ignorant than the stupidest person in the state.
    The charges were dropped by a judge who has actually seen the tape and knows what went on. Not all the charges, just the ones that don’t apply.
    People from Georgia know its wrong. Some people from Georgia, however, are wondering what the rest of the story is and are waiting on the video to say definitively what happened. Because we don’t really know at this point.
    You know what? Stay the hell out of my state. We don’t need any more idiots on our roads. As for you… I’ve seen the type before and you can’t teach ignorant idiots. So I’m going to stop here and not even try to correct you. Stew in your ignorance.

  • I feel sorry for you, true we may not have all the details of the story, but we have enough. For me and many of my WHITE friends the fact that Mr.Wilson felt comfortable enough to beat a woman OF ANY COLOR in apublic place, speaks volumes to the lack of morals and values in this country. Please don’t allow your bigotry and obvious hatred of HUMANS to cloud your judgement. I will be praying for you-not judging you. We are only products of our environments, it’s obvious you’ve not been taught any better. Pray this never happens to your sisiter, mother or daughter. If it did, it would be equally wrong.

  • Seriously, Ina? You’re defending West? So which are you, his wife or his mother? You should disown the man or just know that you will be labeled by America as the same sort of white trash bigot that he is. Do you want Troy Dale West, Jr, to grow up to be just like his daddy and end up being investigated by the FBI?

  • Bob Smith, while I don’t understand why Ina is defending West so much in her replies, I do think you need to be careful about labeling the whole state of Georgia as being racist. Extreme cases of bigotry that are brought to national attention do often end up being in the Southeast as a result of the tumultuous history of this part of the nation. However, the majority of Georgia’s residents have long embraced concepts of diversity and acceptance of differences. I would suggest that you might want to examine your own prejudices and stereotypes since you seem to closed to the idea that there could be good people in Georgia. Your prejudice may not be as pronounced as Troy West’s, but that doesn’t excuse it.

  • Why should a simple felony charge be enough? When blacks are convicted, they’re often punished TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW. Why should West be treated differently? What’s with the covert lenience?
    **eye roll**

  • That is the full extent of the law. The problem I see with making it a hate crime is that equal attention isn’t being accorded to the other side of the aisle. For instance one of the more recent stories like the white kid that got his as beaten on the school bus by some black kids.
    If the FBI is willing to open that door and prosecute all “hate crimes” the same then I say go for it. Otherwise they need to leave well enough alone.

  • I like this Troy guy…how come black people always whine….I believe Troy …Black people love to spit. It’s about time WHITE PEOPLE demand that they have rights too. Ever since OBAMA became president (whom I DID NOT VOTE FOR) there is all kind of black stuff everywhere from tv shows to god knows what. There were two people in this situation and Troy needs to be given a chance here. He probably did say whatever BUT SHE PROVOKED HIM.

  • This is pretty much treading the line of racism in itself but I’m going to leave your comment up for now.
    I didn’t vote for our current sitting president either but that has nothing whatsoever to do with beating a woman in a restaurant.
    Even if provoked he still had no right to beat on her. There just is no defense for West’s behavior in any kind of decent world and there’s no way that decent people would defend him.

  • I, too, am disgusted by this man’s behavior and I hope that they can find enough to keep him in jail for a very long time. I think, however, that you should reconsider your indictment of everyone in Georgia. There are many intelligent, kind and generous people here. As a matter of fact, I happen to know Troy, his wife and children. He is, indeed, said to be a wife beater and for that I wish he would be locked up. I think never doing business with him again is a good response to his behavior. Many of us in this area intend to do just that.

  • It is absolutely amazing that some people are defending this fool, and he propbably is a woman beater and of course he’s a racist, the saddest part is that had she been a “dog or cat”, he would have been charged with numerous felonies and PETA & the Dunwoody Dog Lovers and all the like would have probably marched to Cracker Barrel home office by now in such an outrage “had she been an animal”…..so sad but in this stupid society we live in people have placed the life of an animal over a Human Being and I shudder the thought had he been a BLACK MAN who beat down a WHITE Woman, PLZ he would be dead, but I’m glad that a geat number of us (African Am) put the pressure on along with Derrick Boazman in Atlanta, Ga and the DA had compassion and upgraded the charges to Felonies…God is Still On The Throne!!!! And I am a Animal Lover and Own a Dog so don’t even go there, I just value Human life over Animals.

  • Derrick Boazman is a fucking moron along with Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and all of the other so-called ‘civil rights’ leaders who are more interested in getting press time than actually doing something to help people of all colors. Sharpton and Jackson have probably done more damage to anti-racism over the last twenty years than all of the stupid Aryans put together.
    I am very glad that they upgraded the charges, mostly to fit West’s behavior, but just because one asshole (West) beat up a woman doesn’t mean that Cracker Barrel is racist, or for that matter, the rest of us who live in Georgia.

  • Since he’s now your HERO, why don’t you make an appt with him whenever he gets out, give him your address and let him personally whup yo — since he has NO respect for Women, lets just say I hope he gets stretched to the limit n jail.

  • Correction…..Troy does not own Blue Skies Environmental Landfill…..and his telephone number is not 229-776-6105……….
    Oh, and by the way…did it ever acure to any of you that maybe the reason no one helped this women is because she actually started it and everything didn’t happen like she is saying it happened. Oh and that maybe there are more witnesses in Troy’s defense..they have just been told by lawyers not to tell their side yet, and perhaps they havn’t been given the opportunity to yet….
    And since this video is under investigation and say everything happened like she is saying…don’t ya think they would have already tried to sentence him and be done with this case…….but then again, how do you know that they are not investigating it because she hasn’t told the story like it really happened….
    You are all bashing a one-sided matter, none of you know this man, none of you know this woman, none of you were there….so before anyone eats their own words, maybe you all should just sit back, shut-up, and wait for the whole story and the end come out.
    What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty??

  • I think this has gone way to far , The fact is that she spit on him, If that is true he had the right to do what ever, The next fact is that the blacks are wanting to make a big deal out of nothing. If I hear they are taking up money for him I will be the first one to give.

  • Not sure where you got the info about Blue Skies or the number above as neither of them are in the post anywhere.
    Of course it’s possible that things didn’t go down the way she said they did. It doesn’t really matter because no matter who started it West crossed a line hitting a woman he shouldn’t have.
    Of course he hasn’t been sentenced yet you dolt, the case hasn’t even been to trial.

  • It went way too far the instant West laid hands on a woman. If she did spit on him that still gives him no right to touch her. I’m not sure what universe you are from but that’s not the way things work. About the only reason I can see for a man to hit a woman is if she attacks him physically first and even then it’s a matter of using enough force to get her away.
    Of course since the detectives have already seen the security video that hasn’t been released to us yet they would know more about the case.
    I guess you and your buddy that left the other comment are just a couple more racists floating in the cesspool. Hopefully you’ve inbred enough to where your line won’t continue too much farther.

  • I think troy is a hard working man that does not want to be spit on. I bet all this will be droped.

  • I was a member of the Oregon State Police for 30yrs. I could never be as articulate as you. I greatly appreciate your view and your attitude. If most people in this country believe in the way you do we would have an even greater country. Your blog is now in my favorites folder.

  • Well this is a case of blacks making a big deal out of nothing. I have seen blacks rape and murder and did not get that high of a bond.
    When they start taking up money for Troy I hope I am the first one to give.

  • I tend to agree that the bond was pretty damn high for what was basically assault and battery but it’s still a big deal.
    Basically West’s defense against beating the crap out of a woman is that she spit at him and called him names. What the fuck kind of a real man beats up a woman who calls him names? This ain’t the third grade anymore. It’s not even about black or white, at least from my standpoint, although it certainly looks like it is from Troy West’s. He is after all the one that called her a nigger as he was beating her.
    With an attitude like yours hopefully you’ll be in line to take it up the ass in prison as well.

  • Well Richard I haver never hit a woman in my whole life . But if any one spits on me I would beat the hell out of them man are woman.
    I do not know Troy but I used to have a wrecker and a body shop and that was the kind of people I had as friends. ( HARD WORKING PEOPLE ) I myself think Troy is just a hard working family man.

  • There are plenty of hard-working people and American patriots that don’t believe in hitting women. I am not saying there is never a time to hit someone, certainly if you are defending yourself you need to use whatever minimum force is necessary to protect yourself but a true hard-working gentleman would never have to hit a woman who spits on him. That’s the mark of a true coward and bully. If you want to lump yourself in with them that’s fine with me, it just shows the depth of depravity you are willing to go to to ‘prove’ what a man you are.
