Braves are in!

Well, it didn’t go down quite the way I would have liked it to, but staying true to the way they have played all year, they strung it out to the last inning of the last game of the year. I guess they just love the drama! Atlanta had to win on Sunday to even have a shot to make the playoffs and they pulled it off in a nail biter! Atlanta's win coupled with San Diego's loss left the Braves as the National League wild card winner, and the Braves will face the Giants in a best-of-five division series that starts Thursday in San Francisco.
Once the San Fran/San Diego game went finial, the celebration began. First in the locker room with champagne popping and then the celebration moved out to the field where the remaining fans (who were still there for a concert by REO Speedwagon) began chanting Bobby, Bobby! What a fitting way to make it in the playoffs and a fitting gift to end longtime manager Bobby Cox’s finial regular season.

Now I just hope they can keep it going and make it to the next round!

Go Braves!
