It’s time for a regime change in Atlanta. Despite this, not everything went wrong for the Dirty Birds this season.
Now that the Giants are headed to another World Series, fans are already scrambling for souvenirs. And right after Travis Ishikawa hit the walk-off three-run home run that sealed the team’s National League pennant victory, the presses at a San Francisco t-shirt printer have been rolling.
When the Atlanta Falcons beat the Seattle Seahawks, they earned the first playoff win for both Matt Ryan and Tony Gonzalez. The entire franchise was able to breathe a sigh of relief, but will need to re-focus with San Francisco up next. With the winner heading to the Super Bowl, Atlanta must be careful to not suffer an emotional let down, and will face even more pressure as the stakes have been raised.
