Losersville, USA?

As Athens native band.....R.E.M. put it:  "Everybody hurts....sometimes."

But.........All at once?   Together?

On the same week-end?

What the hell is going on here?

First  .....the University of Georgia....loses to boarder rival,  South Carolina.   The Bulldogs put up 42 points  only to see the Gamecocks put up 45!

South Carolina takes advantage of turnovers to beat Georgia in thriller

ATHENS -- As the staff and players of the Georgia football team walked slowly off the field Saturday night, about half the fans above the locker room tunnel stood. Then they did something few Bulldogs fans did last week: They applauded their team.

Then the Atlanta Braves get swept by the Saint Louis Cardinals......3 games to none....and suddenly the 10 game wild card lead is down to 4 1/2!

Braves swept again, wild-card lead to 4-1/2

And while the Bulldogs and the Braves did manage to put on a competitive effort.....the same cannot be said for the Atlanta Falcons.

Consider this:  After finishing last season at 13-3......Counting the embarrassing play-off lost to Green Bay....4 pre-season games.....and yesterdays debacle against the Bears....

This team has lost 6 straight!

Falcons suffer unbearable loss at Chicago, 30-12 

CHICAGO - In the rare times when it appeared the Atlanta Falcons might get on track in the season opener Sunday, they were hampered by their own mistakes. read more is but one week-end.

But oh what a bad taste it left.


Well.....there ain't a whole lot of winning around here....lately.
