As for Native American names…

I have a sort of nostalgia for the old team logos, but more because of the association I have with my childhood. Now they really make me cringe and I feel embarrassed for having that nostalgic feeling, if that makes sense.

I hate the chop and I wish they’d get rid of it. But the Braves have the support of the Cherokee Nation, Eastern Band (which in full transparency, Atlanta gives them A LOT of money), so I doubt they will get rid of it.

What’s funny is that the chop is only about 30 years old. Deion Sanders brought it with him from FSU.

But Atlanta has gotten better. The mascot used to be “Chief Knock-A-Homa” and there was a tee-pee in the outfield. Every time they hit a home, smoke signals would come out of it. *cringe*
