The Atlanta Braves Can’t Even Win A Game In The Renderings Of Their New Stadium

The city of Atlanta will soon enjoy two luxurious new stadiums. Although the beauty of the new stadiums may not always equate to attractive and successful play on the field, that is a tad bit too far into the future to predict.

No one expected Fresno State to win the College Baseball World Series in 2008. Who saw the New Orleans Saints defeating the Colts in the 2009 Super Bowl? Sports are only slightly easier to successfully predict than my ex-girlfriend’s disposition every morning, and those odds were highly improbable.

If anyone should spread an aura of confidence and optimism, it should be the team itself. Well, unless you’re the Atlanta Braves and you can’t quite pull your head far enough out of your ass to make it through the seemingly impenetrable NL Division Series.

The Braves released a rendering of their alluring new stadium, and, if you believe in the power of foreshadowing, the future is not as luminous as Atlanta sports fans would like.

When zoomed out, the new digs look innocent enough. It’s a dazzling, modern stadium, complete with everything a professional baseball player could ask for.

However, if we zoom in on the scoreboard, the Braves are down 6-3. Oh.

Optimism! I love it.

The Braves’ social media team did a damn good job taking it all in stride and turning an embarrassing oversight into a joke.

Take a breath, Atlanta. One of your teams has to win something eventually.
