Braves 4: Land of Futile Gestures

A few dreamers have put up in hopes that an online petition drive will somehow convince the Braves organization to keep their AAA team here.

The odds of that petition drive working are roughly the same as the odds that I’ll hit MegaMillions tomorrow night.

So, if you’re an R-Braves fan, feel free to sign the petition.  Maybe it’ll make you feel good.  But it won’t change the fact that our incompetent regional leadership and apathetic fan base have chased the Braves to Gwinnett County.

(Original comment from MySpace)
Actually reading the petition puts more of the onus on the city of Richmond than anything else so I’m all for it.
