It's a big day in the world of sports. We take a bit of a break from baseball for a moment to watch a bit of the NFL Draft. Consider this an open thread for discussing picks and such...if there are actually any Falcons fans out there.
It takes a good team to win in this league.
All of you who are from Atlanta probably know that it's rather "un-cool" to be a Falcons fan. I've always wondered why that is, but I think it has to do with years of losing coupled with a whole lot of northern transplants that already root for other teams. Of course, it's probably mainly the years of losing.
In a way the Braves are vulnerable to the same thing. Just look at the attendance for Mets games or Cubs games or Red Sox games - all these northern transplants who root for the Braves when they're winning, but don't care a lick when they're losing. Of course, the Braves have probably cemented more of a fan base due to their years of winning, but what might happen to our base if we endured years of losing... I shudder when I think of it.
