Best Fan Reaction To Braves’ New Stadium

I just read through 189 reader comments about the Braves moving from Turner Field to a new stadium in the suburbs. Why did I do this? So I could pick out my favorite one and post it. The winner:

U all R stupid 4 sayin this is a bad idea. Finaly we can go to a game and not worried abut my wife gettin rapped.

Oh, Internet, you have done such a great job of raising the level of literacy in this country.

“I worry abut my wife” is poetic. Kanye will take notice.

he also seems to imply with his use of “we” that all game-attendees are worried about his wife being raped, rather than their own

Stuff like that makes it so hard to be a braves fan. Still not as cringe-inducing as the arrogant, conceited cards fans.

Neanderthal behaviorists will quickly point out that the males have a natural inclination to keep their kin safely within the bounds of racist, semi-literate bigotry.

As a frequenter of the AJC Braves blog, I can tell you with certainty that the poster of that comment is just a troll.

Shame on you Blachman.

The commenter may have limits communicating, but he cares about another, and her safety.

The low hanging fruit is not necessarily the sweetest.
