More To The Story: Chatsworth Braves Fan
Neil Green and his famous Braves Machine
CHATSWORTH, Georgia (WDEF) – The Braves are off to a great start in the 2021 World Series, winning game one last night in Houston.
That made a lot of Braves fans in our area very happy.
But none happier than a gentleman in Chatsworth, Georgia.
And you’re about to meet him.
News 12’s Dave Staley is just the man to introduce us, with tonight’s latest edition of “More To The Story With Staley!!
Like it or not, the Braves logo still features a tomahawk. And here comes one…..in full view! On top of a ’94 pickup truck. Hand made almost 30 years ago.
Chatsworth’s Neil Green is well known for this machine!
“I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE NEAT TO HAVE ONE”
As a die hard Braves fan, it’s a means of enjoyment!
“YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE HOW MUCH FUN IT IS”
As best as I can tell, it’s a kick for others as well!
DAVE STALEY, NEWS 12 NOW;
“Neil is 70 years old now. He still does some side work for a local car dealtership here in Chatsworth. I first met Neil and did a story on him back in 1993. I remember the date. You know why? Because Neil saved the story on VHS. There it is baby! In living color. Right before your very eyes!!”
That’s not all. Neil has kept a scrapbook of pictures from over the years. To include pictures of when he and his truck were part of the Braves “World Series winning parade” back in 1995.
The Braves logo, as well as the fans “chop”….has drawn some criticism over the years.
And remember, the All-Star Game was moved OUT of Atlanta this year, in response to a Georgia law concerning voting. For Neil, it’s all about the game itself.
NEIL GREEN, ULTIMATE BRAVES FAN;
“They traded the All-Star Game for a World Series. Woo!! We’ll trade every time.”
Neil is a retired carpet mill worker. He has bad knees now. But he watches every game he can. And he wants his team to raise another title banner!!
“For everybody that lives in Chatsworth, Georgia. Go Braves……bring it back!”
Something that all Braves fans…..can agree on!
