what is atlanta united doing right that the fire are doing so wrong?


something amazing happened, and instructive, after the super bowl this year. following the falcons' crushing, breathtaking collapse to lose to the patriots despite at one point leading by 25 points, i returned from houston to my home in athens, ga., for a night of drinking with some fellow sports fan friends. i had been expecting them to be crestfallen, even devastated, and they were: i can't fathom a worse way to lose to a super bowl, or, for that matter, a worse way to lose a pickup game with schoolchildren, or tic-tac-toe, or chutes and ladders.this was yet another kick in the head, probably the worst one, to atlanta sports fans, who have dealt with braves' postseason collapses, hawks' irrelevance, hockey teams bolting out of town and, most of all, the georgia bulldog's perpetual undera
