I think you'll find a lot of the die hard fans in the surrounding areas of ATL thanks largely to the early days of TBS.
I'm a purist who never leaves a game till the final out. For years I've sat laughing to myself as the "fans" file out of the stadium starting at the end of the 7th. If the Braves are losing, even more go. So many times, I've watched them come back and win in the 8th and 9th. I never count them out, EVER!
