I was out of pocket yesterday so I couldn’t relay this story.
Some college buddies and I met up at the Ted on Monday evening and watched the Braves take Game 1 against the hated Mets. We saw some great action. Jurrjens fanned 8. Wagner came in and shut it down. Some solid two out hitting was on display, and Jason Heyward and Brain McCann each hit homers. A great time.
Being 2-for-1, we were able to get some really good seats in the lower level along the third base line. Towards the end of the game, we moved down to right on the field.
It was refreshing to hear Jeff Francouer get booed. I have made my dislike for him very obvious. During the 4th inning or so, someone threw a Coke bottle on the field to hit Francouer. Now there is no need for that. But, once Jeff got time to be called, he tried to be a bad dude and throw the bottle back in the stands. He missed and it fell short of the wall. HOW EMBARRASSING.
We told that whiney brat Francouer what we thought of him. I don’t know if he could hear us, but I would like to think that he could have heard me yell “he should have stuck to football to help lead Clemson to another 7-5 season” (Buypropertyucheedawg told me that, if I heckle, I need to be more concise).
FYI Braves fans…strike up a conversation with the security guards. We had some guys near us who looked like Secret Service Agents with their shades on. They were big, mean looking dudes. I wouldn’t mess with them. However, they thought our insults hurled at Frenchy were funny and got to talking to us, so I asked this hypothetical question: If I were to run out on the field to tackle Francouer , how long of a head start would he give me? I asked for five seconds. He advised me not to do that. I obliged. He went on to say that they get paid more if they have to tackle someone, so these guys have an incentive to whoop somebody.
Speaking of Frenchy, it seems like that prima donna is getting traded to the Rangers. He underwhelmed with the Braves; he was no good for the Mets. Maybe he can get along in Texas and their coke head manager. Seriously-how bad was their outfield to begin with?
