About

If you’ve just found Losersville randomly, make no mistake, I am as rabid an Atlanta sports fan as there is.

If you’re wondering why I chose this name, well, if you’ve spent any time following sports, you’ll know it’s a fitting moniker for our seemingly cursed city (Damn you, General Sherman!). More specifically, you’ll know that in 1988, Sports Illustrated dubbed Atlanta this very name. It seems only fitting our colorful, if bumbling, sports history should get its own blog.  While I can’t locate the original article, many have made reference to this ingominious title (like here, here, and a very early reference here).

We’ll take a look at the modern standard bearers of this title (cough, cough, Michael Vick…Bobby Petrino), and some of the past un-greats (like a certain big-contract center from SMU, who’s in the banner above).

    Oh, Eric, I was so happy to see you had a blog and then *sigh* it’s about sports. So, I’ll blogline you just in case you say something funny (which I’m sure you will) but don’t expect any more comments. Because I’m totally sure I won’t understand a think you say.

    This has a new entrant (date of occurrence 2/5/2017) that overwhelms all prior considerations making them null and void. Thank you for your time.
