  There are bad areas of Virginia Beach you know...
When I first moved to Virginia Beach about 18 years ago a friend of mine told me about a couple of areas of VB that I shouldn't look in for a place to live.

It was really a pretty easy thing to remember. He told me to stay away from any area with Green in the name. There are two that come to mind, one is called Level Green and the other one is called Green Run. When I went looking for a place to live I specifically avoided these neighborhoods because I have daughters.

Now, when you watch the local news around here most of the violence happens in Norfolk or Portsmouth or Newport News, but there are occasional incidents in VB and when there are they usually happen in one of the two places I mentioned earlier.

I know, you're asking, why are you bringing this up Andy? If you read this blog often enough or if you know me even a little bit, you know I'm a big time NY Giants fan. And if you're a football fan then you know that there's been a lot of talk the last few days about one of the Giants star players, Plaxico Burress. Well, Plax is from here and he grew up in Green Run!

So, I guess all you can say about the stuff going on with Burress right now is that you can take the kid out of Green Run, but you can't take Green Run out of the kid! It's a shame really. Some of these guys have all the talent in the world. All that talent, all that money and not a lick of common sense!

Oh well, the Giants will move on without him, just like they did with every other player that either retired, got traded or got hurt.

11-1! Best record EVER for MY Giants! Tampa Here we come!!!
