ATLANTA BRAVES OPENING DAY

A SOFT Opening day for season ticket holders is guaranteed to be POW! POW!

For those who can make it to the preseason game today against the Atlanta Braves and the New York Yankees at SunTrust Park.

A fire under Interstate-85 yesterday caused part of its structure to collapse which has created the worst situation possible for the Braves’ management.

What everyone has dreaded since hearing where the new stadium would be located has happen. Part of I-85 will be closed for months, if not years, making getting in and out of the stadium a fan’s worst nightmare. Traffic which has always been bad just got dreadful.

The new stadium, with a projected budget of $622 million, is located next to the highway interchange between Interstate 75 and Interstate 285 and with Interstate 85 (with a portion of it closed) connecting both at some point, traffic will be horrendous.

With such an unforeseen event effecting the city in such a major way, and the first exhibition game starting tonight at 7:35 is the last thing the city needs.

The traffic situation, because of the fire, will give the Braves’, sponsored by Gas South, new slogan “Bring the Heat” a whole new meaning. And not a good one.

There are three things you can do in a baseball game. You can win, or you can lose, or it can rain.

So to those BRAVE enough to fight the traffic and all that it entails, I hope the team provides a game to remember, or at least in some way make it worth the time and money you spend.
