I have also been propositioned to help a stranger tag team a pair of girls the next block over and once a guy that told me his sister thought I was attractive and wanted to hookup with me. While this behavior might not be unique to Atlanta it is the only city I have been to an experienced such annoying and odd requests.
Lol...wtf. Overall Atlanta is an overrated city. But I love the new Braves complex. Great field and fan experience. Turner field was kinda a dump

I only have been once for a couple days. But overrated was exactly the word I would use to describe it. I found the city rather boring. There isn't shit to do downtown.

Homeless people in Atlanta are different than any other city I've ever been to. I had multiple people follow me for blocks and they kept talking and talking like we were friends. It was very unique experience to say the least. They were all friendly but being followed by anyone is always weird.

Re: MLB thread

Astros - Braves is my pick.

Although, it will likely be the Dodgers.

Re: MLB thread

Dodgers are fucking loaded. They can easily reel off the next 4, but winning game is 1 huge.

Re: MLB thread

Clayton Kershaw has been scratched from his NLCS Game 2 start against the Braves on Tuesday due to back spasms.

Huge news for the Dodgers. No word yet on if Kershaw is simply being pushed back a day or two, but one would think it would take something rather problematic to force him from making a postseason start. Tony Gonsolin will make the start in his place on Tuesday.

I just read about Kershaw missing the start. You gotta wonder how serious the issue is for all things considered. Huge advantage for Atlanta. TB and Atlanta off to great starts in these series.

Re: MLB thread

I thought Betts was the missing piece to the puzzle?

Re: MLB thread

SD and Chico,
As resident Braves fans I went back home to Chucktown SC to visit my moms for her birthday. SC is Braves country. The south has this weird thing they like to do with flying college flags even if they didn't go there but root for the team. Right now there are more Braves flags than Clemson flags. It has been pretty cool seeing everyone get excited.

Re: MLB thread

Never easy. Especially for fans of any Atlanta team. Lame.
