Photo of the Day: Enjoy That Stogie, Bobby

↵This weekend, however, when the Braves travel to play the Mets, there will be no tobacco puffin’ for Cox: It’s been banned at Shea. Bobby thinks this new stadium smoking ban is a fantastic idea, so long as it doesn’t apply to him: ↵

↵⇥"I think that's a great idea," he said after Monday night's 7-3 victory over Washington at Turner Field.

↵⇥Even for himself?
↵⇥
↵⇥"The clubhouse doesn't count," Cox quipped.
↵⇥
↵⇥The Mets said they will speak with Cox about the new policy. ↵
↵Yes, Mets, good luck speaking with Cox about not smoking in the house. You ever tried that with your grandpa? And how'd that go? Right. Not well. Old folks have earned the right to do certain things their way, even when those things involve slowing killing themselves.↵
