In a city with a rich sporting history, two fan bases are divided and it's unforunate as the respective franchises hold the only championships Atlanta has ever seen.
Willie P. is not from Atlanta.
There is very little crossover between these two fanbases and it's kind of sad. Why do we have to be at a level where we are at odds with people in our city? The diverse interest and culture here is one of the great things about this city. The Braves did make a strategic move when moving to Cobb. It hurt a lot of peoples' feelings, but can we get to a point where we can all coexist? Atlanta is on the front of the jersey...for both franchises. We live in an area where people have become uncomfortable getting outside their own comfort zones. There is no agenda here. It is possible to love soccer and baseball.
