The Atlanta Braves have won 13 straight games. They now lead the National League East by 15.5 games over the Nationals.
What’s the reason for the streak? Waffle House, or specifically: #WaffleBall.
Atlanta fans have taken up the “Waffle Ball” rallying cry ever since the eatery opened up an outpost inside Turner Field on July 26 — the same day the winning streak began. It’s taken on such critical mass, that Waffle House has released a meme-worthy video, which includes such lyrical gems as, “people say it’s pitching, some say it’s bats, but I think we all know better than that … Waffle Ball.”
Beware, the ditty will get stuck in your head forever once you listen to it.
Your move, Tigers.
