It was time for the morning sports news, all is quiet in Flowery Branch today on this the first day off of training camp for the Falcons. Hugh said “It’s good for them to have a day off, because there won’t be very many of them from here on out.”
There’s also a day off today for the Braves who needed just a home run from Jeff Francouer Sunday to give them a 2-1 win over Philadelphia. That gave them a split on their four game series. The big news of the weekend for the Braves was the trade of Hector Olivera to the Padres for OF Matt Kemp.
