Honorable mention: 1981 Falcons had a 2-touchdown, 4th quarter lead on the Cowboys at home in the NFC playoffs, only to give up 20 4th quarter points and lose 30-27.

 

Honorable mention: 2012 Falcons blow a 17-point lead at home in the NFC championship game, losing to the San Francisco 49ers

 

5) Twins outlast Braves in 7 games of the 1991 World Series on Jack Morris’ 10-inning, 1-0 shutout

ATL #5
4) 1996 Braves bring a 2-0 World Series lead over the “Stankees” back to Atlanta and proceed to lose 4 straight, as the defending champs

ATL #4

 

3) 1998 Falcons lose Super Bowl XXXIII to the Denver Broncos after their safety and NFL Man of the Year gets busted in a prostitution sting on South Beach in Miami, the night before the game

ATL #3

 

2) After winning game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semis in Boston, the 1988 Hawks bring a 3-2 lead back to Atlanta, only to lose in game 6 and then game 7 in Boston, overshadowing one of the greatest basketball duels ever, between Dominique Wilkins and Larry Bird

ATL #2

 

 

And the top Atlanta Sports meltdown of all time is……you know. LOL

The Giants win the World Series and I don’t give a (S)ugar (H)oney (I)ced (T)ea!

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

First off I want to start this post by asking a question. Wtf did I use Sugar Honey Iced Tea in the title, when everyone knows what I meant? Isn’t the intent what’s important? And with that being said why did I just write WTF? And who puts both sugar and honey in their ice tea? I wonder about these things. Anyway congrats to the Giants for winning the World Series but I honestly could care less. It has nothing to do with the fact that they beat my Phillies. It just was not entertaining. I don’t know what it is but baseball is no longer entertaining to me.

I grew up with baseball as my favorite sport. My grandfather and I had season tickets and we would go to Phillies games and sit behind 3rd base and enjoy all of the games. I grew up watching Charlie Hayes, Steve Jeltz, Kevin Gross, Juan Samuel, Shane Rawley, and Von Hayes as my heroes (Although I hated Von Hayes because he seemed to strike out every at bat without swinging).

I would get to the games early and I met a lot of the Phillies players as well as visiting players. I got to see who appreciated the fans and who had no home training (If anybody knows or ever sees Andre “The Hawk” Dawson tell him I hope his sister or niece gets stuck in an elevator alone with Ben Rothlisberger).

I also grew up in the inner city and there really were not a lot of outlets to go and play baseball. I could however play basketball in any neighborhood and maybe that’s the reason why I fell in love with hoops.

Anyway back to the World Champion Giants. The only thing I personally found entertaining about the giants was how ugly a team they were. I mean is it me or did Tim Lincecum look like a lesbian woman (Nothing against lesbians The War Room loves lesbians, at least I do).

And their closer Brian Wilson looks like the old Wooly Willy (Pause) toy.

They had so many ugly players that I would laugh just watching them play but it had nothing at all to do with the game. Eventually I stopped watching because there were a lot better things to watch on TV. In fact I would rather watch any basketball or football game regardless of the teams instead of The World Series. In fact I would rather watch reruns of What’s Happening with the Givins Kids singing “Bubbling Brown Sugar”.

I often wonder where did my love for baseball go, but as I talk to others I realize that many feel the same way. I don’t know what baseball could do to win back fans but the numbers show they are losing fans to other sports. What’s your opinion? What could baseball do? Let The War Room Know!
