A Teenager's Solid Memory

 You guys might know me from commenting and chatting on the game threads and all. I'm Jose, an avid Braves fan since the days of Maddux, Glavine, and Smoltz. I'm only 16 and in high school obviously. Last year was a blast for me.. one of the memorable moments I had was when I was leaving school to home and the Braves were playin' the Reds in a day game. Well, read this..

 I remember that game like yesterday, I was on my Sidekick seein' GameDay. I was facepalming myself when I saw the Braves' score, 8-1. I remember I was on the 7 train, seein' the Braves hittin' in the 9th. Glaus, Hinske, Escobar..

 Then the double from Nate, I literally was talking to myself, saying "This mother fuckin' train has to go express now!" Sadly, it didn't. 

 By the time Odarp singled on that error from Miguel Cairo, I was at my stop, Junction Boulevard. I decided then and there to run home as fast as I can. Usually, the walk from the station to my house is 10-15 minutes. I dashed my way home, bumped into people and sweating crazy because the sun was strong that day. I called my mother, screaming to my mom, "TURN ON THE TV! BRAVES ARE RALLYING! TURN IT ON!" My mother, my older brother, and my sister were already home. 

 I got to the front of the house, counting only four-five minutes from the station to my home. I was juggling for my keys in my bookbag. I zipped up the stairs and my mother didn't turn on the TV. First time ever I yelled at my mom, so I turned it on, and BAM! Conrad and the Braves were celebrating at home. I was on my knees, in front of the TV, screaming from the win and crying from the pain (sprained my hamstring that day.) One day, you know I'm gonna tell my kids this moment I had. 


As for this year, expect the Braves to win 93 games. Winnin' the East. ;) 

Wherever I go, I know it's now claimed by Braves Country. Let's go Braves. /> |> /> |>
