Celebs at Braves game

Well things didn’t work out for the Braves tonight but there was plenty of high profile fan sighting, at least. We spotted Ted Turner at the ball park named for him, sitting near former President Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalynn right behind home plate. 68028_1555715765423_1011078506_1589785_128963_n

The former president, who had a little health scare the other day, looked great and was wearing his trademark JC belt buckle.

He was wearing a Braves cap and gave us a thumbs up when we said hello.

Braves player turned analyst Brian Jordan was happy to be there to pull for his former boss. “I’m excited for Bobby Cox. Bobby’s a player’s manager,” Jordan said.

“The top word is respect. That’s something he gave all of us as players. He taught us to give 110 percent. I just want to see him go as far as he can go.”

We love Brian Jordan. Nicest guy in the world.

Moya Angela, starring in “Dreamgirls,” at the Fox this week, performed the National Anthem. “It was so last-minute. I think we found out on Friday,” Angela said during an interview on the field, just moments before she began to sing.

Despite its killer high note she enjoys singing the Star Spangled Banner, saying “it’s one of those songs that brings everybody together.” After she was done many fans shook her hand in appreciation. The first to do so was Turner.

We were told Betty White and Jennifer Love Hewitt were supposed to attend although it’s not clear if they made it.

Danny Glover and Julius “Dr. J” Erving enjoyed the game from the Sun Trust Club VIP area.

The stadium was packed, standing-room only.

Were you there?

was there. great atmosphere. best game I’ve ever seen my team lose. Everyone needs to remember that Conrad won 4-5 games by himself this year and we wouldn’t have even been playing tonight if not for him. Feel badly for the guy.

When Kimbrel had 2 outs and 2 strikes, Turner Field was louder than I’ve ever heard it. It may have been as loud than I’ve ever heard Sanford Stadium on a Saturday night.

Sorry folks. Bobby blew this one. Excellent coach during the regular season but relies way too much on the “odds” during the postseason.

ARRRGGGHHH!!!

I was there, and Brooks Conrad got more boos that any player ever a Turner Field. If Billy Wagner had played 2nd base, we could have won. Bobby should never have left Conrad in after the 2nd error tonight. Sorry Braves. Tim Hudson pitched and played his heart out-was a one man show till the 7th inning. And if Jason Heyward takes his time once more, just trotting up to a fly ball that he lets drop in front of him, he could have caught it if he had actually HUSTLED, that would have won it, too. Take Heyward and Conrad and ship ‘em outa town together.

ARRRGGGHHH!!!

Oh, and another thing, who was the dude sitting on the other side of Pride Mayor Kaseem Reed? Jimmy & Roslyn Carter on one side and his Pride Pal on the other side? Cute couple…..NOT!

I was also there 4 things really got me. Three were Conrad’s errors and one was Danny Glover not standing when the soldier was honored. Really showed no class. I know it’s his right not to stand, but it was more RIGHT TO STAND!

So now we know why the Braves lost. Too many well-known liberals and Progressives(brainless liberals) in the park. Besides that we were playing SF, the home of Nancy Peelooser and the homosexual capital of the country. It was all those “we have to be sensitive” people feeling sorry for the Giants there at the end. Good grief, just JC and JF alone being there would have done it. Glad I didn’t go, might have thrown up had I seen either one of them!

Looks like you got your neocon patooti handed to you. You need to relax a little, old man.

Whatever my patooti…Just be happy that San Diego Padres played the way they did during the end of the season or Atlanta wouldn’t even be playing the Giants, it would have been CALIFORNIA represent. BTW- most Giants fans are not even from San Fran, people in San Fran are from all over the world, esp. Europe, the Irish love it there, the fog reminds them of Dublin… and they could care less about American baseball. The bay area fans (outside of the city) love their team and support them all the way. I still wish the Padres were playing though. Sad San Diego.

oh and the if the braves do win the series, the Philies will sweep them, too easy. SF Giants will be more of a challenge to the Phillies and a more interesting game. Lets make the Phillies sweat a little.

The bottom line though: Phillies and Yankees are probably the teams that will be in the World Series. BORING!!! East Coast baseball again.

4 HITS? How do you expect to win with 4 measly hits?

But don’t hesitate, go buy next years tickets for your anemic hitting Atlanta Braves—Hudson throws 7 beautiful innings and Bobby goes to the bullpen—great move you hall of famer

Does Jimmy Carter wear the JC belt buckle because he thinks he’s Jesus Christ?

[...] We’ve got plenty on the game. >> Braves face elimination. Sunday’s game story. Photos. Celebrities show up. >> As tough a loss as I’ve ever seen, Leyritz game included. [...]

One thing is certain. The Braves can always be counted on to screw it up.
