    I hear what your saying, one of the best things about going to Fenway, is that there is just so much around it to do after the game. And with in walking distance. So we don't really have a problem with traffic (parking stinks), we just use the T which adds to the night.
    I've been to Fenway a few times...I loved it each time (except the cost of tickets...jeebus, lol!). Turner Field has NOTHING like that around it...there's a cheesy BBQ place outside of it, and a little ratty gas station about a block away. And that's it. It's really quite pathetic, and I think it's one reason why our tailgating movement has grown so enormous...tailgating at Turner Field is an event in itself. And people are usually so cool with it...food is shared, corn hole games become really REALLY competitive, lol! I'd say the tailgating experience is definitely almost as fun as the game experience itself...and there's ALWAYS blues players and local artists playing music all up and down the parking areas so you're never more than 10-15 feet away from some good tunes.

    Man, I love tailgating, can't do very much of that at Fenway, have to wait for Guilette for that. And it so true about ticket prices. Amazes me how it's constantly sold out. New englanders we love are sports.

    I think me and my brother paid $175/ticket when we went and saw the Braves/Sox game a few years ago up there...nice seats, but jeez. I just bought our tickets for the Braves/Sox game at Turner Field on memorial day, and I spent $70/ticket for club level seats with unlimited food and beer as well. Kind of shows the staggering difference between the two ball parks. I can go to a random division game on a weekend and spend $25 and have a nice seat...

    Falcons tickets, on the other hand, are very similar to what you experience. Last year, to see the Pats/Falcons game in the nose bleeds, I think we got them for $200/ticket in a pre-sale list.

    - Yankees use their infinitely large budget to buy every damn player (or move their big players) while other teams try to figure out how to survive...go figure.

    Sean I am the first to say I am not a big gamer but I figured WTF I might as well go for it and glad I did. Just finished with playing it for about an hour and it is pretty solid, Thought you might like to know about it. So far So good!

    Oh well...Braves got their teeth kicked in (by the Mets...go figure), but it was a pretty awesome experience with the whole Hank Aaron ceremony...almost made up for the complete and total lack of offense (which is becoming very worrisome, even if it's early)...here's a few pics, I'll upload a few more tomorrow.

    Until the 9th...Santana looked absolutely amazing through 8 innings, then Walden gave up a bone headed two walks in the 9th and they, for some reason, brought Kimbrel in with about 5 seconds of warm up time to close out the game (which he did, but not in a pretty way). A win is a win, but 4-3 didn't represent the absolute GEM of a game Santana pitched.

    Also, this play by Simmons...JEEEEEEEEBUS! LOL!

    Enjoyed a really REALLY long walk off win last night with the fam...chilling at home watching a less close game tonight (still in our favor thankfully!)

    Some shots from last nights fiasco and my brother and niece being goofs (and showing off her new Braves gear)! She was exhausted but was a trooper and chopped all the way until the win in the 10th!
