No really, this is good, if not great news. First of all, traffic entering/exiting downtown Atlanta will get waaaaaaay better on the connector, which has been getting progressively worse every damn day. Second, it's not like the Braves are winners or anything. Maybe being out there in Cobb will help them focus, because Cobb County sucks even worse than Atlanta pro sports. No distractions! And third, I love how they're saying that they want to be in Cobb County because there are mass transportation issues. Does that mean that Cobb County is finally going to stop being, ahem, particular about allowing public transit systems to come through its neighborhoods? Probably not. I'm sure there'll be a train station with no buses that lands right at this stadium, meaning that you're batshit crazy if you thought you were about to cruise around Cobb County on some type of street car that picks you up from the stadium. Hell nah. They can't arrest you on a street car, and don't you know what COBB stands for? Speaking of which, who the hell besides Cobb County residents wants to go all the way to Cobb County just to watch the Braves lose? Pssheeeeit...
