Being a sports fan in Atlanta must be absolutely terrible.
Not only do the Falcons consistently blow leads week in and week out, now the Braves have become the latest Atlanta sports team to choke away a big lead.
On Sunday, the Braves ended up blowing a 3-1 series lead against the Dodgers in the NLCS after losing game 7.

Of course, sports fans immediately took to twitter to mock Atlanta sports fans after the Braves’ loss.

The Hawks traded away Luka Doncic, the Falcons blew a 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl, now the Braves choke a 3-1 lead to the Dodgers in the NLCS.

I personally recommend we treat Atlanta like that episode of Futurama: We move the city out to the Atlantic Ocean and then let it sink.
The world is better off without Atlanta. What do we really lose without Atlanta to choke everything.
Choking teams. Choking traffic. Chokers.

If people in Atlanta wanted to give up on sports, I certainly wouldn't blame them.
