If you’re in the Atlanta area, you have an assignment this afternoon:
He’s no longer a Brave, but Jeff Francoeur will always be a Gwinnettian. So to wish the Parkview grad luck in his move to the New York Mets after Friday’s trade, the Daily Post will have a banner available for fans to sign.
The banner can be signed beginning at noon on Wednesday at the Daily Post’s main lobby. Our office is located at 725 Old Norcross Rd. in Lawrenceville. Fans can also stop by to sign from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday.
The banner will be presented to Francoeur before Thursday’s game between the Braves and Mets.
The challenge is to write something utterly insulting about Francoeur while keeping it clean and subtle enough to not cause someone to erase it. Something that goes unnoticed until one day, years from now, the people up in Cooperstown — who will no doubt be sifting through these kinds of things in the runup to Jeffy’s induction — get a little laugh out of it.
If you sign it, please share your story with the rest of us.
