Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was caught blowing kisses to someone off-camera during warm-ups at Truist Park before the start of game 3 of the National League Division Series (NLDS) against the Miami Marlins. 

Many assumed the kisses were directed towards his wife, Chelsea Freeman, who must've been sitting in the stands. 

Nope. Chelsea tweeted a video of Freddie making heart symbols to the stands saying, "But I’m not at the field yet," leaving everyone wondering who exactly he was making eyes at.

Animal themes aren't rare when it comes to Georgia sports. We've already got the iconic Bulldogs, Hawks and Falcons, but now Major League Soccer is hopping on the train too. The Atlanta United puppy is the most adorable new addition to the team, but he's actually not a mascot.

Spike, a precious yellow Labrador Retriever, was recently announced (January 23) as the newest Atlanta United member, but he is more than just a symbol of the team. He is actually training to be a service dog.

As with any new year comes lots of resolutions and we'd be lying if we said lots of goals don't revolve around saving money.

He used to be a star football player, but since his career about three years ago with the San Francisco 49ers, he's been actively working in the shadows.

Colin Kaepernick shook the world with his peaceful protests during his last season with the San Francisco 49ers. Since his football career took an abrupt halt, he has since transitioned to a life committed to activism. With the NFL seemingly blackballing him, it appears that we'd never see him play again. However, it's been reported that Kaepernick has been invited to a private workout in Atlanta this weekend. 

Kaepernick hasn't made an NFL appearance in nearly three years, but he'll be taking part in what appears to be an audition for several NFL teams.

Georgians are super proud of our recently founded soccer team because (up until now) they have been scoring wins left and right, earning them top rankings in the MLS. Last night, Toronto pulled a win over Atlanta United at the Eastern Conference final and we're all a little let down because they totally blew their winning streak.

If you really think about it, this shouldn't come as a huge shock since Georgia sports have a hefty track record of scoring enough wins to make it to the playoffs, and then letting us down. Big time (and all the time). If you weren't superstitious before, you probably are now because the Georgia sports curse is all too real.
