Braves Win! Braves Win! Braves Win!
 
Since we have a few Atlanta lurkers around here lately...

I don't know how I can love the Braves so much and loath the Failcones as completely as I do...

But I grew up with these guys. Actually, I grew up with guys that came long before they did.

There are three sports moments I will never forget. Hartley's kick against the Vikings. Porter's INT against Manning.

And this one.

I miss Lemke, and Gant, and Avery, and Horner, and Chambliss, and Benedict, and Rameriez, and Murphy, and Hunter, and Claudell, and so many more. Mostly I miss Skip and Pete and Ernie. They taught me the game. This was the first time sports ever brought me to tears - it's as beautiful now as it was then, and that it was Bonds' noodle arm that could beat Sid's worn out knees just makes it all the sweeter!

The funny thing about Sid Bream is that you could play that video in real time and then watch in slow motion and you couldn't tell a difference in his speed. :p

I teared up just watching it again.

One of my greatest memories ever watching a ball game with my Dad and family.

Awesome, absolutely awesome.
