    I like going to the park to watch the children jump scream and run. They don't know I am just using blanks.

  1. For those who have not been in awhile, that area has changed and what was once a crappy sports bar is now condos, which are next to the hotel parking lot. Actually, there are condos all around. Of course we have to remain somewhat civil. The noise ordinance in DeKalb is 11:00, however the hotel may have a different curfew for noise. I do remember in the past, not having any problems at this location. This hotel is also a short Uber/Lyft ride from many restaurants as well. Not sure about bowling alleys though.....
  2. The last several years we have stayed at Fairfield Inn by Marriot. It's close to MARTA and a small shopping center that includes a grocery store, Arby's and Dominoes
  3. Not sure if we can ever do that again. The NFL mandated a change in these tours for security reasons. As Duff Man said, lets enjoy seeing long time friends again.
  4. We still have plenty of time, however don't put off planning for this. As I stated above, there is a Strong Beer Fest that Saturday at the Wrecking Bar in Inman Park. It's about $45 - 50 per person. It's an epic event and I have been to everyone, and judged the last two. I will post a link when the tickets go on sale. It will be October before they are available. It is a beer geek event, so if you are not in to barely wines, barrel aged sours or huge stouts, it may not be for you. Of course, you are not required to attend as there are other things to do and anyone wishing to volunteer their efforts to organize activities, go right ahead. More later.
  5. You long timers here remember the MBGT from years past. It's fallen off the last several years. Since there will be a new stadium, we need to rekindle this event. There were some good times and great stories from previous events. The targeted game would be the Vikings game, the first Sunday in December. For you beer geeks, that coincides with the Strong Beer Fest at Wrecking bar. Saturday beer, Sunday Falcons. The days before, do as you wish, but we can discuss other activities. So....Who wants to get the band back together?
  6. I realize there has been a lot of Ryan bashing over the years for his level of play. Some of it probably justified. However, when you compare him to Cam Newton, you must appreciate the type of player he is when you consider the antics of Cam Newton. You never see him perform childish celebrations for a routine first down. No over the top display after a touchdown, He answers all questions, after loss, albeit dull and predictable. He never complains about calls, or lack of calls. Example: He was hammered in the Sewhawks game, some of the hits at the very least, borderline personal fouls. When asked about that, he just blew it off. No doubt he said differently in private, but never made it a "Matt Ryan" issue. He's a good player and team mate. You all can debate his quality of play, but as a team mate, he is one of the best. Try saying that about Cam Newton.
  7. A better idea is to NOT be in a position where one penalty ruins the game. The 10 points off of turnovers is what hurt the Falcons more. Take those off the scoreboard, and the last missed pass interference penalty is moot.
  8. I had them 1 - 7 after 5 weeks......I suck at math.
  9. They still have the Falcons emblem on the helmet. It's some sort of curse. I've seen so many times in the past, where things are looking great, then.....Well, the history gets in the way. Doesn't stop me from being a fan. It just has me more cautious.
  10. I still remember last season. Not to be a buzz kill, but I've been around for awHile and have seen things go from great to bad.
  11. All this rhetoric regarding the prevent defense and the late game yards/points being piled up reminds me of the primary criticism towards Mike Smith and the teams inability to finish games.
  12. So this means the Falcons won't get in a bowl game?
  13. It's true. I could never hit a woman.....Even if she has a stutter.
