Let the sport commence!

And with that quote from Kamal Khan in Octopussy, my blog gets underway. I'm sure you have a lot of questions, so why don't we start by answering some of them:

What's this Blog about?

Atlanta sports teams. I'll be posting on the Braves, Hawks, Falcons, and Thrashers (G-d willing), along with some SEC and ACC action. I don't cover golf, tennis, NASCAR, or any other individual sports. I'm a real Communist like that. Intermittently, I'm sure I'll veer onto Dylan lyrics, Bond movie rankings, the Battle of Stalingrad, and whatever else crosses my mind. There'll also be plenty of media criticism, because what's better than a typing head criticizing a talking head?

Why are you writing this Blog?

Because no one else is. I go to a lot of games and always find that the write-ups in the AJC never quite scratch my itch for provocative analysis. I also find that most of the media is targeted to the lowest common denominator, so there's a void for intelligent analysis. (Note that I am not foreclosing myself from the occasional Lindsay Lohan remark with that statement.) Having lost faith that I'll ever find a media source written by people with graduate degrees with no fear of angering any of the people they cover, I decided to do my own.

Who are you?

Michael. I live in Atlanta. I grew up in the state (from age 9 until I went to college.) I went to plenty of games at Fulton-County and the Omni. Game 7 of the '92 NLCS is my favorite sports memory; Game 4 of the '96 Series is my least favorite. 'Nique and Murph were my childhood heroes.

What do you do all day?

Lawyering, but man cannot subsist on screaming at opposing counsel and drafting discovery alone.
