I think I just became a Braves fan.

GEAUX BRAVOS!

So the big moment is here and the Braves open a new ballpark, their third location in 51 years since moving from Milwaukee. Should be an interesting night.

Surprisingly the traffic at 5:15 doesn't seem worse than usual.

ETA: And for some reason the NGTO forum clock is running about 30 minutes slow. What the...?

Yes, but the NHL playoffs take like 9 months to finish. Wake me for game 7 of the final final final final - Final!

Good win by the Braves in their new home. I know the folks down at SunTrust HQ (where I work) were super excited about opening day finally being here.

PS: I grabbed the 3:00 pm bus out of town and it was a normal Friday afternoon ride up 75. Slow and steady as always on a Friday afternoon; I saw no impact by folks trying to get to the ballpark. And from what the news was saying, traffic on the top end perimeter leading up to game time was actually lighter than normal. Maybe many up in north Cobb and Cherokee tele-worked.

That's got something to do with tools, right?

Default Freeman sidelined with broken wrist

Well....crap. Freddie Freeman is out until July or August with a broken wrist.

Quote:
@Ken Rosenthal
Source: #Bravesí Freeman has a fractured left wrist. Expectation is that he will miss at least eight weeks.
Bravesí Freeman, as you might expect, has his wrist in a cast.
Source adds: #Bravesí Freeman will not undergo surgery.
Really too bad - Freddie was having a terrific season.

Default Fireworks tonight

Braves hit 7 times in 3 games
Freeman out after HBP with broken wrist
Bautista and Pillar acting like complete inflamed anuses last night

Someone is going to be paying the Blue Jays tab tonight. Not saying it belongs in baseball nor do I condone it, but it makes for great watching.

Freddie is going to be missed for certain. Poor guy - he can't catch a break.

Gout, you do realize hockey failed three time here??? The Flames are now in Calgary, The Knights moved on and then the Thrashers did the same. This is a Baseball and College Football town and gets to be an NFL town when the Falcons are doing well. Hockey is cool no doubt, but the market just is not here in Atlanta. I prefer the Olympic hockey games and format myself.
On another note, good job on Nick Markakis stepping into no. 3 in the lineup and making some critical hits for RBI with 2 outs. While Freddie may be the MVP style player, Markakis has impressed every year with his consistency since he's been here.
