So yeah, not much here but 4 is better then one, even if all of them was like forever ago. Falcons got this I'm sure of it, I got faith in my team RISE UP
No offense (I'm pulling for MATTY ICE and the Falcons to win today) but...
Previous poster was referring to Atlanta sports and was still correct
1914 was the Boston Braves, 1957 was the Milwaukee Braves, 1995 was the Atlanta Braves
If you go back even further, the "Braves" won another championship in 1892 as the Boston Beaneaters. As for the Hawks they were the St. Louis Hawks at the time. You can't really call it Atlanta sports when it wasn't an Atlanta sports team at the time.
This reminds me of Indianapolis Colts fans who weren't fans back in the Baltimore Colts days who want to count those titles as part of Indianapolis, or (and the media is at fault for this one as well) Los Angeles Lakers fans who count the titles won in Minneapolis as LA titles. I guess it's a bit subjective. If you're like most Lakers fans and haven't lived a day in your life in SoCal, then it's easier to count the franchise's titles as a whole. If you're LA born and bred, the titles won in Minneapolis, belong to the city of Minneapolis and their history. The easiest way to describe it, is wherever the victory parade took place, is the city where the championship matters most. But if you're loyal to the team itself and not the city, that's different I suppose. Nobody better ask me about the Raiders because that WILL contradict everything I just said, I count them as one big hazy blur and say "close enough".
You're an Atlanta sports fan though so you shouldn't really care as much about St. Louis or Boston or Milwaukee sports championships, and as previous poster stated, that leaves you with only 1995 to cherish.
