Default Just 37 days until I get to watch the Falcons play

This is our year. And by "our", I mean the bunch of strangers 1,500 miles from me with whom I have affiliated myself and pledged my tribal allegiance.

With Gonzo coming back for one more year, and the addition of Steven Jackson and Osi and Trufant and Alford, this is finally our year of destiny.
It's in the bag folks. Take it to the bank.

Do you wear a helmet, shoulder pads, and pack a .45 when you are in a sports bar in Denver?

Nope. There are actually about 10 Atlanta fans here. I guess we're seen as a novelty, seeing as we've been rubbish for decades. Never had consecutive winning seasons until Mike Smith's tenure.

There's a metric arse-ton of Steeler and Bears fans here. And a lot of Aints fans.

Woo-hoo! (Yes, I know I'm being distracted from the NSA etc.)

As a Chiefs fan I have a soft spot for Tony Gonzalez, he deserves a ring.

I'm a Steelers fan, but I live in GA, so we get to see the Falcons a lot - and when they're not playing the Steelers, I cheer for them!

Not only rubbish, but the only way they'll get to the Super Bowl is if they buy tickets!!

I'm actually going to a Steelers game this year. Believe it or not, at Wembley!! They're playing the Vikes on Sept 29th and I'm combining it with a family visit!!

I thought you were referring to these Falcons!

Sorry, I really don't care for overpaid, drug-using Nancy Boys, who run 10ft stop and take a break, inhale some oxygen, go backwards 15ft then take a "Time-Out" for an Oompa-Loompa Meeting.

Screw That For A Bag of Ollies!

Let's watch some Rugby!


Jim.
