Smoltz visits UGA Basketball Team

Some really cool footage of John Smoltz visiting with Dennis Felton and the UGA basketball team can be found here. (I don't believe this particular video is "embeddable.") The Red and Black also has an article on it here. The Braves pitcher was invited to speak to the team at the request of Assistant Pete Hermann, who apparently became acquainted with Smoltz while he was head coach at the Naval Academy.

For those few of us who call ourselves die-hard UGA basketball and Atlanta Braves fans, this is pretty special. The H-O-R-S-E contest (which incidentally Felton snuck out with a 5-4 victory) is really good stuff.

Thanks to UGASports.com and GXtra for the video link.

Thanks for the lead. Good video, and Smoltz looks good in that UGA red!
