Tim Altork

Columnist

Tim Altork is a 33-year-old professional writer and editor who has been a fan of all things Atlanta (except the nerds at Georgia Tech) since he became self-aware at the age of five. He has never witnessed any of his teams win a championship because they either a.) haven’t won any, or b.) won one the year after the baseball strike cancelled the World Series and he refused to watch because the heroes of his youth shattered his high school senior ideals with their greed. He hates: Pete Babcock, Jim Leyritz, Eugene Robinson, Lonnie Smith, Terrance Edwards and anything else that has prevented his teams from reaching the pinnacle of their respective sports, including the Nike bats that the 2008 Georgia baseball team blamed for their inability to beat Fresno State in the CWS. When he’s not writing or editing he’s chasing one or more of his four young children around the house and telling them to put their pants back on.
