Atlanta is the capital of UsefulNotes/GeorgiaUSA and its largest city, and the largest metropolitan area in the Deep South[[note]]If you don't consider Texas Southern that is. If you do, UsefulNotes/{{Houston}} is the largest Southern city. In the eyes of Uncle Sam, both Texas and Georgia are in the Southeast, so Houston is the largest "Southern" city. In the eyes of everyone else--including Northerners who know the first thing about cultural geography--Uncle Sam knows where to stuff it.[[/note]], best known for being the current center of the HipHop world. The Coca-Cola Company (Pepsi is blasphemy)[[note]]Coca-Cola's influence is in fact so large that "Coke" has become the [[BrandNameTakeover generic term]] for soft drinks in much of the South[[/note]], Delta Air Lines, Chick-fil-A, and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) have headquarters here. Turner Broadcasting, which owns Creator/{{CNN}}, is also based there (having grown out of an old independent TV station on channel 17). Atlanta can roughly be divided to areas within and outside the Perimeter (Interstate 285), a beltway highway that is known for insane traffic. Atlanta also has the busiest airport in the world and if you have flown in or through the US more than a couple of times, you ''will'' have had a layover there at least once.

* The Braves are a Major League Baseball team that started in Boston, moved to Milwaukee, and finally ended up in Atlanta in 1966. They've won exactly one World Series in each city (1914, 1957, and 1995). Its players have included Hank Aaron who was the Home Run Champion to top Babe Ruth, and it was formerly owned by Ted Turner, and as such had most of their games broadcast on cable station TBS from 1973 to 2007. They did very well and were popular enough in the 1990s to be nicknamed "America's Team"[[note]]pushed heavily by TBS, but anyone outside the Metro Atlanta area who called them that was doing so ironically[[/note]], but entered a slump in the 2000s. Even during their long streak of Division pennants, they were the poster-child for EveryYearTheyFizzleOut, netting one World Series win in 14 playoff appearances. In 2010, longtime coach Bobby Cox, known for being AFatherToHisMen (and being one of the most ejected coaches in the MLB) retired. They plan to leave the city proper for a new stadium in suburban Cobb County at the start of the 2017 season.
* The Falcons are an NFL team, historically mediocre with occasional strong seasons, and appearances in UsefulNotes/{{Super Bowl}}s XXXIII and LI. It was the team quarterback Michael Vick played for when he was exposed for running dog fights. From 2008 to 2012, the Falcons were one of the NFL's more solid teams despite [[EveryYearTheyFizzleOut a lack of postseason success]]. Super Bowl LI will be a game that [[NeverLiveItDown lives in infamy for the Falcons]] after the Patriots [[MiracleRally erased a 25 point deficit]] late in the game to put the Super Bowl into overtime for the first time in its history, with the Patriots scoring the winning touchdown on their first and only overtime possession.

Those with more geeky inclinations can easily find a place in Atlanta. The Georgia Institute of Technology (aka Georgia Tech), one of the largest and most prestigious polytechnic universities in the country, is located right in Midtown. Downtown is overtaken every Labor Day weekend by the massive celebration of all things geek known as Dragon*Con.

Dragon*Con. And the weirdness central that is Creator/AdultSwim (and the anime/action animation central that is Creator/{{Toonami}}) originates from an old Turner facility on Williams Street [[note]]this is why Adult Swim programming is produced by Williams Street Studios; the Interstate divides it from the Techwood campus that most of the other Turner nets are based at; the "Turner mansion" (as seen in the 1990s on Turner-released home videos and movie) is the central part of that complex[[/note]].

* Atlanta had two different NHL teams[[note]]Yes, really. Stop laughing.[[/note]], both of which ultimately left for Canada. The Flames[[note]]an allusion to Sherman's burning of Atlanta[[/note]], founded in 1972, were enjoying modest success on the ice, but couldn't consistently fill the Omni, nor could they find stable ownership in town, so the team was sold to Nelson Skalbania and moved to Calgary in 1980, keeping the Flames name. The Thrashers[[note]]named after the state bird; the nickname had also been considered for the Flames as well as the NFL's Falcons[[/note]], a 1999 expansion team, also struggled at the gate, not helped by apathetic owners who didn't care about running a hockey team. Again with no willing suitors to keep the team in town, the Thrashers were sold to True North Sports and Entertainment in 2011, relocated to Winnipeg and [[ReplacementGoldfish renamed the Jets]][[note]]True North originally sought to bring the ''original'' Winnipeg Jets, presently the Arizona Coyotes, home; however, the city of Glendale, Arizona, who owns (and at the time, operated) the Coyotes' home arena, elected to cover the Coyotes' losses for another season to keep them from moving, so True North went to the next available team for sale. Also, Atlanta Spirit allegedly refused any offers which would have kept the Thrashers in Atlanta, especially any offers which included buying the Hawks and/or any part of the operating rights to Philips Arena, since Atlanta Spirit at that time weren't interested in selling the Hawks or the arena's operations[[/note]].
* Atlanta United FC will begin play in Major League Soccer in 2017. The team will be owned by Falcons owner Arthur Blank and will share the new Falcons' stadium, which is currently under construction; however, due to construction delays, the club will play at Georgia Tech's Bobby Dodd Stadium until the new stadium is ready.
