Atlanta sports fans: We definitely have it worst

Who has it worse, Braves or Cubs fans? I posed the question to my Chicago-born husband this morning, six hours after my beloved Bravos blew a late lead over the Dodgers to lose their sixth straight division series. Is it more painful to limp home from the postseason year after year, or to (almost) never be any good at all?

Well, an Atlanta team actually won a championship

Atlanta sports fans can no longer gripe about our championship drought. Last week the Atlanta Silverbacks won the Spring North American Soccer League Championship. Can we all just say it together? Championship.

We’re No. 1! According to us!

Yet to those who root for pro sports (and, I hope, those who play them) the night felt unmistakably like a consolation prize. We were told repeatedly how lucky we are to be here in this world-class sports town. We were reminded that the New York media was against us. We were so showered with love and self-serving praise that you almost expected, say, a Boston sports fan to leave behind his seven titles in the last twelve years so he could come down and buy season tickets to half-empty Turner Field.
