Wading in with a few thoughts as the baseball postseason nears, the Grizzlies get ready to play games that don’t count, and Dak Prescott’s new-found fame …

The St. Louis Cardinals, in all probability, will not make the playoffs. Oh, sure, as I write this they are mathematically alive for a wild card spot.

72. Best Hotel Rooms in Nashville – With or Without Helicopter -

Tod Roadarmel, director of sales and marketing for the nearly 2-year-old Omni Hotel downtown, is awestruck by the vitality of Nashville’s hospitality industry. In town since 1988, he remembers when pre-Bridgestone Arena Broadway was not a place you’d want to be late at night.

75. Gulch Approaching 50 Percent Buildout -

Nashville’s storied Gulch, originally the home of the downtown railway terminal, is approaching another milestone in its long history.

77. Ramsey Uses ‘System’ to Reshape State’s Political Landscape -

No one worked harder than B.B. No one inspired more up-and-coming artists. No one did more to spread the gospel of the blues.

Not only will the facility receive upgrades, but the installation will be used as reentry training for the inmates as they will be trained to install the systems.
