Hip Check

What do you do when your NHL team heads North to Winnipeg? Keep following the team? No, that feels a bit like getting dumped, then being asked to stay friends.”  Follow the local ECHL team? Well, they do play fifteen minutes away and you can get a first row seat on the corner for less than $20.oo. The games are a lot of fun, but players come and go, so you don’t really have a chance to cheer for a favorite player—you don’t want them to stay in AA too long. Besides, it’s not the NHL. Thus began the “The Quest for a New Favorite Hockey Team.”

Hot Damn! A Title This Atlanta Chick’s Proud to Claim.

Forget the Worst Sports Town in the US and the City Whose Fans Do Not Deserve a Championship Game. Movoto.com, a real estate site, conducted its own survey and concluded that Hotlanta earned the designation as the Most Redneck City in the U.S. Now this is an honor... read more

This is No April Fool’s Joke. Seriously.

Like any self-respecting Atlanta sports fan, I have an instinctive, virulent, extremely strong dislike for any sports team bearing a NY logo. Doesn’t matter: Mets… Knicks… Giants… Islanders… especially the Yankees. Don’t like them.... read more

All Things Considered, Two Out of Three Not Too Shabby

Not often you get the opportunity to actually knock two items off a Bucket List (Sports Bucket List in this case.) Last weekend we headed Way Way North to Montreal to: 1) See an Original Six match in the Montreal Canadiens’ home arena, the Centre Bell; 2) Watch... read more
