    The Braves organist played the UGAg fight song when he came up to bat to lead off the Rockies in Atlanta today. Chip Caray made a point to laugh and point it out on the broadcast and thank the organist. Charlie responded by lacing one and promptly scoring two batters later.

    Yeah, I like Blackmon when he isn't in Atlanta, but piss on him while he is facing the braves. Oh, and that organist can go sit on a broomstick, as well. He has been doing that same tired bullshit for years, whenever a former Tech player comes to bat. I'd be interested what he does for a gagger, but I don't believe they put too many people in the Show so I have nothing to go by.

    öööö the Braves if they are going to to öööö like that. I hope they lose every game that song is played.

    This why I hate the Braves. I absolutely hate when the fans do the FSU tomahawk chop also. You can add the Falcons bird -dogs fans also

    I was in a restaurant in the Denver airport yesterday and looked up to see Danny Hall being interviewed on the field at Russ Chandler. I was like “WTF,” then figured out it was a Rockies postgame show feature on Blackmon.

    I have casually become less and less of a Braves fan anyway, but this is all I needed to say öööö em. Why is that funny to do that to the hometown team?

    It's typical dwag fan behavior. They never miss an opportunity to take a shot at Tech, but will always go "aw shucks guys just playin around" after doing so. So ööööin' annoying. Will readily admit it triggers me.

    Are you people serious? He plays the Ramblin' Wreck whenever a former Dwag comes to bat too. It's all about a laugh and potentially getting under the skin of an opposing batter.
