Mornings with McElroy for this Wednesday October 31, Happy Halloween for all those waiting for the Great Pumpkin!
KG and Ray Allen
Seems to be the big deal today is the big snub of Ray Allen by Kevin Garnett last night during the season opener for the Celtics and the Heat.
One side of the fence says KG has every right to snub Allen. Others would say, Garnett needs to let it go. That he did the same thing to Minnesota.
Personally, I have no problem with Garnett giving Allen the cold shoulder because this happened in the first quarter while Allen was checking in!!!
Save the love fest for pre and post game---the game is going on!!!Good for Garnett.

Congrats.....(from Nationals Press Release)
Washington Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche today was named the recipient of the 2012 National League Rawlings Gold Glove for first basemen. The defensive citation is the first of LaRoche’s career.
LaRoche led all National League first baggers this season in fielding percentage (.995), games started (149) and innings (1323.1). At 6.1, LaRoche also paced NL first basemen (min. 1000 innings) in Ultimate Zone Rating, a figure that blends the number of runs above or below average a fielder is in three categories: range runs, double play runs, and error runs combined. He also led the NL with 159 plays made and 38 plays made out of zone (OOZ).
LaRoche is the third Washington-based big leaguer to earn a Rawlings Gold Glove.
Can you name the other two?
