Cam's Popularity In Atlanta At A Braves Game

Recommended Posts

How so? Cam wasn't as clean cut and well spoken as he is now. I mean the dude stole a laptop from another student. Cam turned his entire life around and is on top of the world through self-motivation and hard work. I guess the Obama reference doesn't really fit in, but if you've ever seen Obama give a speech to inner city kids he makes it very clear that the path to success isn't on the streets being "hard" or whatever and that it takes hard work and motivation. Cam's speech to those kids at the Under Armour high school all star game (I think thats the one) outlined very similar points.

Whether that makes any sense or not, I work in a restaurant and play basketball regularly with inner city people in the Capital District of New York (Albany, Schenectady, Troy) and just about all of them are huge fans of Cam.

Where is the proof that he stole a laptop? Are we to assuming...nevermind, I keep forgetting that it's now ingrained in our society to automatically think that way.

Wasn't there some tweet where CC Sabathia tweeted a pic of his 5 year old decked out in a youth cam newton jersey? He said he was trying to get him to pull for the browns or something but his kid loved cam.

Oh yeah, and fug THE BRAVES

Wow...different season. Same BS.

I guess you must not be black?

TRD is a turd but he is right on this one.

Why do u think Barack won? There were people who were 50 years old voting for the first time in '08

I have a problem with people only rooting for Cam and not the franchise. I guess it comes with the territory when u have a potential superstar.

Glad to hear Cam's helping out in the College Park and Riverdale area. My lady's from College Park, and when I was down there it looked like it needed a lot of work done. Love to hear stories of how some of these athletes who are able to make it out the neighborhood, go back and try to make it better for those still there. Atlanta should be proud of Cam

We were driving back from panama city in 2007 from spring break and we needed to stop for a piss break in Atlanta. My sheltered very rich white boy friend was like let's stop in college park. It was college park or the other shithole around Atlanta if I heard the name I would remember it. Culture shock lol

If you are a man and wear a jersey in public, let alone the jersey of a team that isn't at the public event you are at, you deserve to be treated like poo. Laughed at, booed, things thrown at you, etc etc etc.

You're a douche if you wear another grown man's costume in public, you're beyond words if you wear one to the wrong sport or game.

Omfg stfu please. You're always the one saying how people should not take things like the NFL and sports to seriously and then u post some dumb ass stuff like this. Hypocritical to say the least. I bet you own a fedora or judging by your avy I bet you were tap out shirts lol! Those are the real fags

The only thing your right about are the losers who wear like a titans jersey to a panthers/jets game. Those people most def deserved to be hazed.

#1: Wearing a tapout shirt is no different than wearing a Panthers jersey. Both douchey as you could be. Please note, you wear a shirt, not were a shirt.

#2: Wearing a football jersey to a football game is slightly LESS douchey than wearing a football jersey to a baseball game, no matter the teams playing.

When I go to sporting events, or ya know, out in public whatever some douche bag guy is wearing is always the last thing I notice or care about.

Hmmmm

Had to go to Atl for business back in Feb. Wore my Newton Jersey in the Airport. And the first day I was there out in the store etc.... Same deal people stopped me to tell me they loved the Jersey and wanted to talk about Cam. All of them were FalCons fans.

The guy at the rental place wouldn't stop talking about him since apparently he had just come through the week before.

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

I see your point.

And, outside of the state of Alabama, the city of Atlanta has a higher concentration of Auburn fans than any other city in the country. HUGE alumni association there.
