Yesterday was a very difficult day for Atlanta Sports fans. The Braves and the Hawks both lost to teams from Washington DC on a walk-off play by a guy wearing number 34 in the span of about 20 minutes. Read that last sentence one more time to let that sink in.
First, we had Bryce Harper sending a shot to the parking lot with a walk-off home run after the Braves fought from 5 runs down to tie the game. This one really hurts because I know we’re going to see this guy for a long time. He’s only going to get better, and it’s going to be a nightmare going up against this clown for the next decade.
A+ for the bat flip. I’d love to see more of the palm/ top/ toss aside flips in the future.
D- for the Chocolate Sauce. Dumbest Celebration in sports.
A little less than a half hour later, you have the Hawks were making an incredible 19 point fourth quarter comeback, only to lose at the buzzer to the hands of Pauley Wheelchair.
C- for laying on the floor while teammates fake punch you.
C+ for the quote “I call GAME. GAME!”
ATL Hawks in 6.
