    Atlanta Sports Fans

    Has there ever been a more collective city of fair weather fans than Atlanta?
    The few, the proud, the likely insane, Metro-Atlanta bicycle commuters.

    And it's easy to get tickets because people don't show up for the games.

    That's too bad, it's a nice Ball Park. Back in the early 2000s I went to a game there. Ten rows behind home plate.

    I was thinking the same thing Saturday night when I saw a shot of the half-empty stadium with over 8 minutes to go in the game.

    You gotta understand folks in ATL... short attention spans, so if the team is losing, they're leaving. "Hey, I still got a 6-pack in the truck...."

    I lived there for three years, saw the Braves turn it around. There was all sorts of headshaking and hand-wringing over the release of Dale Murphy, their beloved son. But when the team started winning, then any trade or managerial action that benched a loyal and good player was justified. Ron Gant was an integral part of that early success (back-to-back 30/30 seasons), and caught the first septic truck outta town after breaking a leg in the OFF-season.

    It's pretty much normal for pro sports fans these days; how many Laker fans hate Shaq now?
