Occupy Turner Field

I'm organizing a group of bloggers/twitterers/fans to descend upon Turner Field in Atlanta for the Astros-Braves series there the first weekend in August. We're up to about a dozen people so far, not including spouses, children, and guests, and we're pushing for more. There are people making the trip from Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina, and maybe more.

The idea is to turn this series in Atlanta, possibly the last for the Astros for a while thanks to the AL move, into as much of a home atmosphere as we can. This shouldn't be as hard as you may think, because Atlanta fans are not good about showing up if the Braves aren't winning and there's a good chance the Marlins, Nationals, and Phillies could all be better than the Braves come August.

Interested in joining the mob? We're still in the early planning stages, so there's plenty of time. Hit me up on twitter @btrostelsc to find out more.

Can't you make it a good place to see a game, and visit. I don't know, say San Francisco or LA or San Diego...

Well, if memory serves me it started out as an opportunity for Tim at TCB and I to meet up at a game, since we both live in SC. Then it kinda snowballed from there. By my last count we're up to about 20 people already.

I have a trip booked to Wrigley 6/29 for the series and would love to do a #occupywrigley with any Astro or even cub fan as possible. I don't have any of the below options but twitter name @ryanwor me if interested. I'm sure their are many cub and cardinal fans from Houston who are as furious as us that would join the fight. (as they usually out cheer us even at home :P ) anyways love the cause!
