    There was a decent contingent of Braves fans at AT&T tonight.

    Any single one of them could've made out a superior lineup to the one Fredo put out there.

    I was there last friday vs LA and the upper level was hardly occupied, which was surprising. But it was LOUD. The fans that were they were hype.

    Coming from Marrietta, if you get off at the first exit it tells you to, you have to drive through downtown and we'd always get lost. But now I found out you just go 1 exit past and you get off right next to the main parking lot (the old ballpark.)

    In 1951, when the Giants and Dodgers played the third and deciding playoff game for the pennant, and Bobby Thomson hit "The Shot Heard Around The World",. there were 34,000 people in the Polo Grounds, and more than 20,000 empty seats. So this isn't a recent phenomenon.

    I know it was an afternoon game on a weekday, but come on, it's New York City, there were 8,000,000 people to draw from.

    I just need a confirmation from you, KHenry. We're both Kings fans and you know I'm no bandwagoner...

    Clippers - stolen from San Diego

    nice record

    oh the 49ers (can you say FIVE Super Bowl Championships) were created in SF
    I can bet that I've been to more Kings games that you did during the Giants' down years from 2005-2008. See, I can make baseless comments, too! God, I wish you had already signed up on BF pre-2009 and see how you posted about your crappy Giant teams from 2005-2008.

    Stolen? Then the Giants were stolen from New York, right? Why in the world is it LA's fault that those teams moved to LA? Without the Dodgers' idea to move to LA, you wouldn't have the Giants. Should I say San Diego "stole" the Chargers from LA, too?

    Again, it's funny that you brag about the 9ners being an original SF team while you ignore that the Giants aren't from SF.

    yeah those Anaheim Ducks and Anaheim Angels are tributes to LA and speaking of Mickey Mouse, how about the Clippers

    and those NFL teams are awesome
    Those are Anaheim teams and I hate them. LA doesn't even need their titles to have more than SF. LOL. The Warriors were looking at the Clippers from below in the standings, last I checked.

    you can say it is often voted the best city in America, and sometimes the world

    Definitely can't say that about LA
    What does that have to do with sports? I see your style now. You go way off-topic to try to win an argument. When in reality, you always lose. And you don't even show links.

    and once you bring up the 4 sports thing, they are open to cross-examination, if you did not want the pitiful Clippers to enter the discussion, you should have thought of that in advance

    I think the LA Kings finally doing something after 45 years has got to your head as you are imploding and thumping your chest every post now with the 4 sports things, I guess you have been going to Kings games for a long time right? (front runner)

    The Warriors were from San Francisco before jumping 8 miles across the bridge, I guess you are unaware of that.

    Clippers have how many NBA Championships? How many playoff wins? How many playoffs appearances? Are you sure they are a pro team? Or often (correctly) cited as the worst team in pro sports with the worst owner


    Just like the Giants finally winning the World Series as a Frisco team got in your head, right? Who are you to conveniently call a frontrunner? And you're the one who always whines about personal attacks on this board. How ironic. Don't get mad at me that SF has no NHL team.

    That is why I said SF will get the Warriors BACK in a previous post. I'm always aware of that, just like I'm aware that the California Seals left Oakland and the Giants almost left SF twice. So don't get smart with me.

    How many championships did the Giants win for SF before 2010? Are you sure they were a pro sports team? How many have the Sharks won? Oh wait, they're not an SF team. All of a sudden, you're talking about the past now? I seem to remember when Giant fans would complain about Dodger fans asking them how many championships the SF Giants have won. Now that they've won one, you have the nerve to question a certain franchise's history. And you also have the nerve to call me a bandwagoner? That's pathetic. BTW, I said the Clippers are doing better than the Warriors and the Kings. U Mad?

    What is your point with team names? I'll reply anyway.

    I'm not a Laker fan so I'm not even gonna defend them.

    "Dodgers" sounds like a generic name anyway despite the name's history. Were the Giants named after that big glove and the Coke bottle in left field? Or Barry Bonds' head?

    The Clippers? You mean the team that is doing a lot better than the crappy Warriors and the Kings?

    BTW how many lakes are in Los Angeles (Lakers)
    How many trolleys are in Los Angeles (for the Dodgers to dodge)
    Are you sure the Clippers are a pro sports team?

    New York, as in the whole state? Buffalo is its own city and they have their own team (even though their stadium is based in a small suburb). The Jets and the Giants may be located in NJ but they are still named after NY. Again, the Redskins are like the Bills. Named after the major city but based in a small suburb. As for Tampa/St. Petersburg, all the teams there are named after the whole Tampa Bay area. So it's not like the Rays are called the Tampa Rays. Hard to compare these to NorCal teams. We're talking about major cities here with well-over 300k in population with their own international airports. I can't speak for everyone but I'm from LA, the city, not any of the suburbs. So I have some bias towards having some kind of "city pride". I mean, if I were from San Francisco and I loved the NHL, I sure would wish SF had their own team instead of me rooting for a team in San Jose. I don't know. Rooting for multiple cities? That's just not me. Of course, I don't know what it's like to be a NorCal fan, but I'm glad all the teams in LA represent the city
    of LA.

    Georgia in general is not a great place for pro sports. College Football rules. The Georgia Bulldogs and to a lesser degree the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are the primary teams of the state.

    Someone mentioned fans being tired of the Braves being eliminated in the first round. . . In 1995 the year the Braves won the Series, David Justice called out the fans for not coming to the park. Personally in 1996 I was able to walk up to the stadium at game time and buy tickets to the NLDS elimination game against the Dodgers at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. This was the year they went back to the World Series.

    In my experience Atlanta Braves games are mostly a social event above all else. Georgians don't go to a Braves game to root for the team, they go as an "outing" with family, friends, church, etc. I haven't been to games in too many stadiums in MLB but I have been to a handful and Atlanta is the only place where most fans are dressed like they are going to the local bar and grill rather than a ball game. Alot of the team jerseys you see fans wearing are oppposing teams'.

    I saw the Mets this year with a group and when my son and I showed up with our Mets jerseys on nobody could believe we were going to the ball park wearing "that." They were not referring to the Mets gear but the fact that we didn't look "nice." The other kids wore Under Armour gear and their travel team hats, the dads wore golf shirts and khaki shorts and the moms wore summer dresses. It was a common theme around the stadium and always is.
