Never anything “stunning” about an Atlanta playoff loss. They happen every year, and often the exact same way. Remember Jim Leyritz? Kirby Puckett? Ed Sprague?
It is damn depressing. Thank G_d for college football. Pro sports here either outright sucks(Hawks) or is just a big tease(Braves, Falcons).
Yeah, the one year the Braves went all the way was in '95 against my hometown Indians. Of course, it helped that the Atlanta pitchers got a strike zone from the umpires that was about three feet wide. Can you tell I'm still PO'd about it?
