FanFest Recap

Written by Colin on January 14, 2008 – 10:51 am

It’s time for our comprehensive review of this year’s FanFest.  We went both days, spent significant time participating in activities, and yes, Rue wants me to mention, once again, that she got her picture made with Buddy Carlyle, even though the rest of the BravesBlast staff can’t quite figure out the obsession.  So after many hours spent, we feel we can offer our opinion on FanFest and the craziness within.

FanFest – Day 2 Updates

Written by Colin on January 13, 2008 – 4:32 pm

The BravesBlast crew just arrived home from FanFest.  The second day was MUCH more subdued than the first day, and we all enjoyed ourselves.  The major factor here was that there were significantly fewer people there today, making all the lines bearable and the attractions more accessible.

We enjoyed meeting a couple friends from MySpace, hitting whiffle ball batting practice, and getting pictures made with McCann’s Cans.  Rue, one of our staff, got her picture made with Buddy Carlyle and she is quite ecstatic.

FanFest – Saturday Update

Written by Colin on January 12, 2008 – 12:50 pm

FanFest is great – packed with everything Braves related, and then some!  We’re coming up for air to post some updates about today.  Firstly, if you’re thinking of coming today, it’s already jam packed.  I’d advise coming tomorrow first thing if you want to beat the crowd.

Let’s take a look at some of the attractions, and I’ll post the schedule for tomorrow as well.

The Stages – There’s a trivia stage where you can try your hand at trivia, as well as a main stage where different activities are going on during different times of the day.  We just caught the Heavy Hitters – the drumline for the Braves – and they were good.  Frank Wren is doing a question and answer session as I begin this post, and they’ll have other stuff throughout the day as it progresses.

We’re entering a great weekend here in Atlanta – Braves FanFest is today and tomorrow. We’ll see autograph sessions, skill clinics, and interactive games in the ridiculously large Georgia World Congress Center. Of course BravesBlast will be there for part of today and most, if not all, of tomorrow. We’ll bring you updates and news from the floor of the Congress Center, so check back regularly!

It’s been confirmed now that the Braves are discussing Mark Kotsay with the Athletics. Read more »
