Pro wrap: Worst. Summer. Ever.

Add this share

Ok, maybe labeling this summer (and fall) as the worst ever is overstating things a bit. But it’s looking to be a long summer for sports fans in Atlanta. Consider this:

The Atlanta Dream keeps on losing. The team’s 15th consecutive loss came on Sunday against the Detroit Shock, the third time Detroit has beaten Atlanta this season. The Dream did stay close, keeping the game tied as late as midway through the third quarter. But a loss is a loss and this one was 100-92.

The Dream start a three-game home stand on Tuesday and there is an effort underway by fans to pack Philips Arena and make a good showing for the nationally-televised game.

Though sexy Joey Harrington, a backup quarterback for the hapless Atlanta Falcons, and his wife are settling into their intown lifestyle, turns out Harrington is the worst quarterback in the NFL. Ever. (Hat tip to Right Down Peachtree.) That’s on top of this nugget: The Sporting News Pro Football yearbook says the Falcons will go 1-15 this season. Ouch.

At least rookie QB Matt Ryan (photo) is all thumbs up while enjoying his down time before things heat up in August.

The Atlanta Braves fall to fourth place. John Smoltz is done for this season and likely forever. Chipper’s going to the DL and Frenchy stinks. Yeah, I wrote it. Stinks. The All-Star break can’t come soon enough for this club – or us.
