Ashley loved to argue football with his nephew RJ Yow, as Ashley loved his former team the Braves who he played for and RJ loved his team the Rams who he played for. You could find him pulling for the Rams as he watched his nephew and he would light up when he saw him come on the field, however his blood was Brave red.
