As some or most of you may know, the Baton Rouge Zoo is now without an elephant for the first time in 40+ years. "Judy" the elephant passed away in March, leaving 37-year-old "Bozie" by herself. Since elephants are such social animals, the staff at the BR Zoo chose Bozie's best interests over the ...

This has been a pretty subpar season, so there is probably no way that JT can live up to expectations. He could singlehandedly save the season if he is as good as he can be. JT is the man (no homo) (ok, maybe a little bit homo).
