I'm a food intern for Summer 2010 with Creative Loafing Atlanta. I write event posts, watch food reality shows and do whatever else needs to…
Full disclosure: Bitter Thrashers fan is bitter about the various flubs by Atlanta Spirit Group and Waddell and everyone else that led to our ignominious designation as the city that has TWICE supplied middle Canada with hockey teams since 1980.
But actually, I agree with this article very much. Recently I went to Boston for a few days to see friends (and my new favorite team...) and I was so touched to see the sheer extent of sports support there. You have all four big pro sports (in addition to soccer and lacrosse and I think I forgot one but you get the idea), PLUS all the colleges and universities in the area with their spreads of athletics (including BC and BU's rivalry, something that I think UGA and Tech fans might relate to), so you can pick pro or college to enjoy. Or both! But I loved seeing everyone in Bruins shirts and jerseys. I loved how the other Boston teams show support for one another. The fans I know are genuine, kind, intelligent people and we stick together. What's not to love about any of that? I just have to get my fix through NHL Center Ice and bonding with fellow fans over the Internet, which just isn't the same...

Dear God. I almost choked on my coffee.
Matt, as a GSU student (although not for much longer; I'm graduating in about two weeks and honestly glad to go, what with the HOPE changes and all), it might be because we're building new stuff and buying up buildings like it's about to go out of style, because we're super ambitious and want to meet and surpass Tech and UGA wherever we can or because I have never heard of a school *scaling back* its tuition costs. (That doesn't mean it doesn't happen, just means I've never personally witnessed it, and GSU honestly doesn't strike me as that kind of school.)
Nah, Gwynedd, you're right--I haven't liked a PETA campaign in ages. They're mostly just like "if you stop eating meat, you won't be a disgusting fatty anymore!" (there was literally a campaign that said "save the whales" and had a cartoonish picture of a larger woman's back) or the "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" campaign. It's clear they subscribe to the "all publicity is good publicity" theory.
Hahaha oh man, the theft prevention device. I lol'd.
This is gonna be good.
Actually, SpaceyG, Sully works for 92.9 Dave FM.
