Cam's Popularity In Atlanta At A Braves Game

Recommended Posts

SIGCHI222    6,895

For what it is worth, I wore my Panthers gear to the Memorial Day Braves game. I refuse to over-exaggerate and post that every person I made eye contact with bro-hugged me, but it was a little out of control at the Varsity when at least six people at once were at mine and my brother's table giving us high fives and asking about what Charlotte thought about Cam. Sat in section 220R, row 7 seat 6 and had three or four more families (not people) ask me if I was a Panther fan during the game, I assume based solely on my hat and T. They love H.A.M., Ace Boogie in Hotlanta and the Panthers are starting to get fans outside of the Queen City. Braves got stomped, but I left feeling like a winner.

My 7 year old son had his jersey on when we were on our way to Disney. Stopped at Cheddars in Savanah for dinner and we had 4 different individuals approach us and comment about Cam. Hasn't been this way since Delho............

The Atlanta Braves and Falcon fans have never disrepected Panther jerseys ta=hat I've see, in fact quite friendly folks. They do have a little hatred for the Saints* but who doesn't? Tampa fans are also respectful to opponent fans I've found to be true.

There's a good number of Cam Newton/Panther fans in Atlanta. I know quite a few myself. Soon, panther territory will stretch from Newport News, VA to Auburn/Opelika, AL lol

Side Note: sucks seeing the Braves go through this losing streak. I'm a big J-Hey fan and he's struggling.

The only things there's more of than black people in Atlanta are Auburn grads. As soon as they walk across the stage to get their management degree or MBA they keep walking east down 20 until they get an entry level job at some accounting firm.

It's basically "love the Falcons, but cheer for Cam."

Also keep in mind Cam is from a really shitty part of Atlanta and is already rebuilding the entire town down there. He's kind of a god.

Gotta also remember most of the Falcons fans that have put a horrible taste in our mouths were Vick fans, not Falcon fans. Cam also appeals to urban youth and fans like Vick did, but not in a thuggish way, more like how Obama appeals to urban youth. A big portion of these fans are switching over to being Cam fans.
