                           Funeral Services
                                       Of
                         The Atlanta Braves


All are :w: elcome.
The funeral march :w: ill begin near the :w: hite House by General Sherman's monument and parade its :w: ay down Pennsylvania Avenue...



To the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial....



Before making its :w: ay to :w: ashington's newest cathedral, AKA, Nationals Park.



As mourners enter the premises they :w: ill be personally greeted by handshake expert, the Refuse to Lose kid, sportsfan882.

Presiding over the last rites :w: ill be no less a dignitary than General :w: illiam Tecumseh Sherman.  :rites:



The musical selection :w: ill be performed by none other than Belle :w: atling.



Scripture reading by Captain Rhett Butler.



Eulogy :w: ill be delivered by Foghorn Leghorn.



Benediction brought to you by Jimmy Carter.



Taps :w: ill be performed as the casket is laid to rest.



Taps :w: ill feature a special performance by ghostwriter of The Unwritten Rules of Baseball and What To Do When Opponents Are Owning You, none other than former brave and one time favorite son of dixie but later revealed to be nothing more than a covert yankee sympathizer, Brian "Scalawag" McCann.



The pallbearers, Screech and the Presidents :w: ill be full emotion carrying this burden to its resting place.



The casket :w: ill be deposited at home plate. The Nationals brass has already dug the hole.



They :w: ill also take turns covering the grave :w: ith dirt.




Jayson :w: erth and the rest of the Nationals :w: ill see to it that they stomp the ground over it to ensure it is nice and flat as the location :w: ill be needed for upcoming home playoff games.



Braves' fans have recently insisted that opponent teams and fans must "respect the A". The Nationals fanbase has a message for you. Kiss our freaking asses because you just got.....




Stay tuned for lineups...

When I hit the park,  I'm usually in the two or three hundreds.    On occasion, I buy the cheapest ticket I can find and go to the Loft.

Ever been to the one off of I-95 in Elkton? Who knew that meth-heads could make such good praline waffles??

I haven't...only time I was in one was in Cary, NC.  Waited far too long with the family for service...never been back.

I only bust on them because they have a location inside of Turner Field...must be official Barves food...

Kinda like Ben's might be for Nats fans, I guess...

Considering how many times I drove the I-95 corridor?  Hit there, if the traffic was already bad and I needed a pit stop.  Elkton also has cheap gas and a subway, for those into eating healthy.  However, usually I'd hold out to the Dunkin Donuts just over the Delaware Mem. Bridge or grab something at the first rest area.

Where is the Sherman statue?  I may go by it on my way to Wednesday's game.

Right off the Ellipse...just follow the smoke (or perhaps that's from the national yule log)

In the square south of the Treasury on 15th.    Right side heading south.     Wave your hat and give Uncle Billy a "huzzah" as you pass.

Yeah the seats behind the plate are so sweet they probably feel like your couch at home. And of course by hoping to be "home" by game time you probably mean "home plate".    ;)

Wonder how many of the Lobotomised Legion (the Braves' drooling, tomahawk-chopping cretin supporters) will turn up for this series, given what's on the line.

Watch out for the weather too - weather.com currently calling for 50% chance of rain tonight, 60% tomorrow (although they usually end up backing off these).
