The Braves have been done with the Chop for a while. They no longer give away foam tomahawks, they no longer encourage the chop amongst fans- they don’t run it along the video boards at all. The fans still do it, but it’s on their own. So now they not only have to deal with the Atl curse, they have to deal with an Indian curse for ditching the references to Native Americans. Like has been said, it should be an honor that an MLB franchise would name their team after you. I would be thrilled if they were the Atlanta Rednecks.
Even though I grew up in Florida, I had a transistor radio and I’d listen to the Braves games. As a kid I never dreamed I end up living where my childhood hero, my grandfather, lived in Georgia. He passed in 84 and I moved here in 85.
My dad is a Gator fan and still lives there. He tried to make me a Gator fan he couldn’t stand that I was a Bulldawg from day one, thanks to my mom, may she RIP.
