Bro Bracket 2015: The Sweet 16 of DoucheBro Traits

It’s officially March Madness time again y’all. So, in keeping with the theme of basketball brackets and last year’s “Sweet 16 Irritating Traits of White Girls”, I now present to you: “Bro Bracket 2015”. It’s a bracket full of the 16 douche-iest things about bros. While any night at a Buckhead bar is enough for us to make up a full field of 64 seeds of doucheyness, for brevity’s sake, I thought it best to limit this to the highest 16 seeds. Some examples of those just missing the field were: “using the word “sick” or “epic” to describe anything cool”, “thinking the phrase “that’s what she said” is still funny”, “and giving the middle finger while posing for a picture”. So, without further ado here is Part 1 and your first 8 seeds in the 2015 Bro Bracket. Enjoy! Read More

Putting the Association on Notice: Seven things we learned from the Hawks three game road-trip…

Your Atlanta Hawks have just completed a tough three game road trip, that was crucial to them making a statement to the rest of the Association.  What type of statement they made would be dependent on not only the outcome of the games, but also their performance against superior competition.  Following their win at home against the Chicago Bulls, the Hawks hit the road for three games against the Cavs, Rockets and the Mavericks.  Three teams with a combined record of 50-22 heading into this past Wednesday night. So what kind of statement did they make?  They put the league on notice: This team is real.  Like…for real, for real.  Here are the seven major things we learned from the trip…

The Grass isn’t always Greener – A soliloquy of sorrow from a mourning UGA fan…

“The grass is always greener on the other side”, is a state of mind that has made its way into every single member of the Bulldog nation over the course of the past decade. Every year for the Bulldog faithful it’s a constant barrage of “What if’s?” or “Woulda’, coulda’, shoulda’” scenarios that always bring us back to the same conclusion. Something and somebody has got to change. For more almost a decade as a fan base we’ve been looking for answers, and more importantly somebody to point the finger at. In what has grown to be an all-out witch hunt in the Classic City, today for the most part our fan base has finally caught their witch…..and man could they be more wrong. Read More

Justin Upton moved to the Padres for 4 prospects in return.

While the teams themselves have yet to publicly announce this trade as official, just about every other source in the country has confirmed it as true. Justin Upton, and a played to be named later, will be playing for the San Diego Padres next season. They will be joining the new-look Padres outfield, which has also added Matt Kemp and Will Myers, most notably, this off-season. Not to mention, a just announced acquisition of David Ross, to add to the acquisitions of Derek Norris and Will Middlebrooks. While it seems apparent that the San Diego Padres are keyed in on competing immediately in the 2015 season, they at least appear to have a definitive plan of action during this off-season.  Read More

Should the Hawks ask Santa for help this year?

The Atlanta Hawks are a team of players your average fan may not know, but should definitely learn about. The point guard position in the NBA is deepest position in the NBA. Just this past offseason, Coach K couldn’t decide between Steph Curry, Derrick Rose, Damian Lillard, Kyrie Irving, and John Wall. First thing first, I would love any of these guys to be my point guard of the Hawks. So the elite guards are stacked, but the list stays tight all the way to the bottom. Read More

The most important position in NCAA Basketball…

By Ryan LeGates

Every sport has that one position that is essential to a team’s success and progression. Most would agree that in football it’s the quarterback, in hockey and soccer it’s the goalie, and in baseball it’s pitching. In basketball, the most essential position to a team’s success is the point guard position. I am a little bias in saying this, being a former college point guard, but nonetheless I think the point guard position in college basketball is more important to a team’s success than any position in any sport.

Your Atlanta Hawks: Overlooked and Underrated…

Kyle Korver, Al Horford, Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, DeMarre Carroll. Five names most people would look at and say “I have no idea who these guys are, nor do I really care”; that is unless you are an Atlanta Hawks fan. These five guys (not the famous Burger joint) are your starting line-up for the 3rd best team in the eastern conference, and possibly a top five team in the NBA. But unless you are in Atlanta, no one really cares to acknowledge this team. STAND UP ATLANTA! You now have a team to be unabashedly proud of and to cheer for without remorse, or fear of ridicule, scorn or contempt from the bandwagoning peers that we all have around us living in the A.

Black and Yellow vs. Red and Black

The picture above was not taken in Pittsburgh. It wasn’t even taken in the state of Pennsylvania. It was taken in CONYERS, GEORGIA.  That makes perfect sense…right?! this is a perfect example of one of the struggles TRUE Falcons fans have dealt with for quite sometime.  But let’s be honest, from time to time, any stadium/venue in our city can be about a 50/50 mix, if not worse, when certain visitin teams come to town.  There are going to be enough Terrible Towels, waving frantically, at the Dome this Sunday to make a real Falcons fan sick. That’s sad, but it’s part of being an Atlanta sports fan. The Falcons have one last shot against an AFC North opponent this Sunday versus the Steelers, one of the perennial contenders, and most respected organizations in the conference. After tough losses in Cincinnati and Baltimore, and coming up short in a brutal time management debacle nail biter here at home against the Browns, the Birds need to prove they can win at least one game against an AFC North opponent, and the Steelers represent the perfect opportunity to do just that! Here’s what Atlanta needs to do to take care of business. Read More

Georgia State Basketball – Atlanta’s Real Big Three

College basketball in the state of Georgia has had many wild turns in the past 10-15 years, but has never been consistent. Why do UGA fans only care about football and not basketball? Why does Tech have such high draft picks, but can’t compete in the ACC? Why don’t star players want to stay in the state to play for hometown teams? These are questions I ask myself every November when basketball season begins. Read More
