Nine Innings with Pat Shaw

Nineinnings08p_shaw Its week two of the countdown to Opening Day 2008 and the second
installment of Nine Innings with the Savannah Sand Gnats finds us
talking to Account Executive Pat Shaw.  Pat enters his third season
with the Sand Gnats and we sat him down and put him on the hot corner.
Here is what happened. 

1st Inning:
How many cups of coffee do you drink in the morning?  Going along with that, what is the secret behind the Pat Shaw Coffee?
I
drink five cups of coffee on a good day.  On an average day, I’ll go
through about three cups.  There is no secret behind my coffee making
abilities, but I will only drink my coffee.  I am also looking for a
coffee sponsor so if anyone is interested, they can contact me at
pshaw@sandgnats.com. 

2nd Inning:
Tell me about the summer of 1989
I
went to France thanks to Benicdictine Military School.  We we went on a
student exchange program with another school in Saumur, France.  The
program was sponsored by a winery and I was there for almost a month.
We started off with four days in Pairs and then we went to Saumur.

3rd Inning:
Being a native of Savannah, what is your favorite baseball memory?

The
John Smoltz rehab.  I was lucky enough to sit in the box seats when he
had his press conference.  I can be seen in the background of the press
conference. 

4th Inning:

Where is your favorite hangout spot in Savannah?
Grayson Stadium.  It’s in my backyard.  It’s where I grew up.

5th Inning:
What is this I hear about a Reggae show

I had a radio show on 90.3 FM, the voice of Savannah State University.  I had my own show called Crucial Riddems. 

6th Inning:
Tell me about the origin of your nickname, Slaw Dog

Slaw Dog was a nickname given to me by Mike Orsini.  Apparently it sounded close to Shaw and it just kind of stuck. 

7th Inning:
As an avid concert-goer, what is the best concert venue you have ever been too?

Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Summit County, Colo.  I went to the Reggae on the Rocks Festival in 2000

8th Inning: 
Fans, this is up to you.  Who can grow the better beard?  Josh Brown or Pat Shaw?  Vote in the Poll!
