I understand there are many Boston transplants in the ATL. But 20,000, all at Turner Field tonight? Don’t think so. While I have no problem with those who stick by their home team (I remained loyal to the Braves when I relocated to LA), I have zero tolerance for those who pick their favorites based on trendiness.
I hate them all. I want to punch them. Particularly when they cheer loudly for a visitor to beat their hometown team. Particularly when they are as obnoxious as Red Sox fans (bandwagon or otherwise).
They have no shame. I want to punch them.
Thus, I won’t be going to the Ted the next three nights. I should be there, standing up for the Bravos, but I can’t stomach the infiltration of Red Sox nation. Watching the Braves lose is bad enough; watching the Braves lose while a third of the stadium cheers is even worse.
