Georgia Tech Calling For White People

In an effort to excite the fans, make a statement and sell more white winter apparel, Dan Radakovich has asked the fans to wear all white for the upcoming ESPN game which is scheduled for 7:30PM on Nov. 20th.

Not exactly the exciting wardrobe change as a "blackout" but then again we're hoping for a different outcome than "that other Georgia college."

Baker to go under the knife

Sam Baker and the Falcons got some bad news about his hip. So at the end of the day, it was never short arms, just injury prone - comments about Baker.....? Actually, in all seriousness he's had the largest impact on the team in my opinion.

D-hall is back, you can read the article if you want. Nothing new.

Hawks Win!

Acie Law on Obama

with me being afro-American, this will be huge for my heritage and the world, just thinking he might be the first black president leaves me speechless.

Acie Law of the Atlanta Hawks has a blog on Yardbarker and although I could make all the comments in the world about how he write and ask if he actually went to college, he's relatively thoughtful in the blog. It's worth a watch.

Jennings Didn't Lose It for us...

...but he should have never been on the bus for the trip. Our punt return team is broken and we've watched too many season with Adam back there. If you aren't going to field the punt or do anything with it, get back on the sideline. We're talking about a guy who's career longest punt return was 37 yards! and averages a bit over 6 yards per return. Surely we can give it to the water boy for more than that.

Blown call cost us a comeback and created a deflating loss, not Jennings, but I still don't like seeing him out there. No offense.

I go away from the blog for a little while and all heck breaks loose!

Who'd a Thunk It?

Optimism in Atlanta? Really. The whole reason I haven't posted in a while is that there is very little drama in Atlanta sports. Sure, the Atlanta Hawks are the NBA's whipping boy for players going to Greece and yeah, they picked some guys playing pick up games at the Run n shoot, but you know, the look pretty good in Pre-Season. Even though Yahoo! thinks that they will suck, I for one will be rooting for them.

.. and the Falcons. Are you kidding me? Amazing what a Coach and an accurate passer can do for a team. Not to mention a HUGE Tackle. That's the piece they've been missing all these years. Sure it was really cute when Alex Gibbs was here to take out opposing teams knees, but even I can take on a 250 tackle. Goodness, Jamaal Anderson would have 10 sacks against an Alex Gibbs oline playing the power running game.

Again, there is at least one moment in every game that I destroy my remote even further, but a win is a win, we'll give the rookie coach a pass for believing Roddy White caught that bounced ball.

... and yes the Braves! I'm so happy that the Yankees fell short of winning 15 seasons. That'll be ours. Of course, they actually WON something, but a record is a record. Bobby's with us for one more year and to be honest I'm happy about that, considering what else is out there.

Oh and the economy may not be what you want, but if you are able to spend time reading this, then life must be pretty darn good. You've got time to waste and at least $20 you don't need.

Childress Plays Against High Schoolers.. See Videoo

I've been out a while, but I saw this over at BDL and I thought it was worth sharing. Childress goes overseas and has no competition, we said it here first. He's not looking to good, except for the video below. The statement was further backed up by 'Nique. See the video here.
