Truly one of the most underrated players I ever seen. Great kid, Great support system, especially his father John. Jordan has overcome the odds and always been the under dog. I am for certain he will be back and someone will pick up a great player with so much potential. Memphis sat him when he should have been playing more his rookie year, which is unfortunate for them because Jordan is a game time player and always performs under the lights. Oakhill #5,#1, UCLA #3, and finally reached his dreams with the Grizzlies. That's a winner in my books. Kid has always done it the right way. Special Player, and Special person. This ya big homie from South Carolina. You already know J.
Alvin York never sold another human being and could kick Bedford's ass nine ways to Tuesday.
Memphis is a good place for a lot of good things
Thankful we have a real coach. Good Luck Tubby!
I won, I won....biggest loser of the day! Maybe even until November 8th!
Y'all know it's all fun and games 'till someone pokes their eye out
Memphis is a good place to be a thug.
GroveReb - It's proper and fitting to have a place in Memphis to honor the greatest soldier from Tennessee.
Like it or not - Forrest and the Confederacy played major roles in the history of Memphis, Tennessee and the U.S.
If statues are taken down - where does it end? Washington had slaves but was a great man. Lincoln would even be considered racist by today's standards.
Packrat - Forrest was shunned by the military elite throughout most of the war due to his lack of formal military training, education, grammar, etc. Shelby Foote noted that Forrest was born to be a soldier like Keats was born to be a poet.
His rear-guard action after the Battle of Franklin saved the Army of Tennessee from annihilation.
Please report any weed growing in your neighbor's yard to 'DaRealestMayor'.
He needs to know. Ain't no reason to call 911. Keep it on the down low.
Granted MPD has problems, but the DOJ is nothing but a bunch of political hacks.
Does this have anything to do with the recent marijuana ordinance?
And what's that smell coming out of your room anyway?
Jim? Mayor? Open that door!
Speaking of silliness on social media. This Facebook feed: Cool Facts About Memphis is Awesome Daily, 901. Mid-South trivia from the irradiated future.
Just had an idea.
The state says you can't remove the statue. Unless I'm mistaken, they didn't restrict what you could do in the area around the statue.
Why couldn't they install 4 separate solid installations (walls, if you will), one on each side of the statue? You could even connect the top of all 4 installations with some other form of solid material (roof, if you will). On these installations, you could inscribe the names of key Civil Rights leaders in the area, names of people who were murdered at Fort Pillow (if good records exist), or maybe just paint murals on these installations to recognize the contributions of those like Ida B. Wells.
Just a thought. No need to remove the statue. Leave it in place, so that those who want to visit it can do so whenever they want. It may be hard to "see" the statue, but we'll at least know it's there. That way, those that want to recognize Forrest can do so, and at the same time, those who want to recognize other key figures in the city's history can do that as well, and they'll be able to do it at the same place.
silliness is vastly underrated.
Forrest was a tactical genius and a strategic flop who couldn't operate effectively except in independent command.
That weird cat poster got my "peek" level topped out. Also, "quotation marks" points.
The mayor does look high AF in both profile pics.
Why you gotta be dat guy??
I'll be using THE CITY OF MEMPHIS facebook page to report stuff from now on. It looks to be very effective.
I kind of like architecture myself. Of course some people prefer open air markets. But they get cold in winter and damp when it rains.
