Notes from Atlanta

June 19th, 2006 → 1:37 am @ // 3 Comments

* Braves fans are pathetic. After 14-straight division titles, this is a city that deserves to have a baseball team that sucks.

* Did Brian Runge, the homeplate umpire in Sunday’s game, remind anyone else of Leslie Nielsen in Naked Gun 2 1/2? Man, did Runge get a kick out of ringing guys up.

* If Jonathan Papelbon isn’t cast as a stone-cold killer in a teen-slasher movie, Hollywood is missing out on an amazing opportunity.

    Runge as Nielsen (as umpire/singer)? Perhaps. But it was the original flick where Nielsen was calling balls and strikes, no?

    You are damn right about Braves fans. How about that curtain call for Francoeur? (Taking a page from Yankee fan’s book.) The morons were celebrating victory in the seventh.

    There appeared to be almost as many Red Sox fans as Braves fans in the stands. I know the Red Sox travel well in terms of fans and last year had the best road attendance in baseball. But this type of balance in a city that has 14 straight division titles? There are THAT many tickets available? Nuff said.
