Pair of aces for Falcons QB Harrington

Backup signal-caller has two hole-in-ones at Druid Hills Golf Club

If only Joey Harrington had this much good fortune on the football field.

The Falcons' backup quarterback dropped a hole-in-one on the par-3, 132-yard sixth hole at Druid Hills Golf Club twice in a matter of days. The first, about two weeks ago, was Harrington's first ace and just the sixth time it's been accomplished since the hole was re-designed in 2004, according to club pro Randall Couch.

"He did it," Couch said.

The story doesn't end there.

Last Friday, as a fill-in at a club tournament, Harrington hit another hole-in-one on the elevated No. 6.

"It landed about 10 feet behind the cup and spun back in," Harrington said. "I don't think I'll be barred from playing that hole, ever, because I have to buy everybody drinks."

Said Couch: "I have people ride around and check things out during the day and [Harrington] sure did it again. He didn't say much when he came into the clubhouse but we already knew. He told me, 'I can't believe it.' I joked that it must be an easy hole.

"I think he was more elated about it the second time than he was the first."

Harrington, who is a cousin of PGA player Padraig Harrington, said he is a four-handicap. Starting quarterback Chris Redman is the only player with the Falcons who consistently challenges him on the golf course

The AJC just ran a POSITIVE article on an Atlanta Falcon player, and all people seem to want to do is continue to be negative. 

Joey Harrington is a gentleman and a professional, and it's nice to see something good happen to him.  Let's lighten up on Joey and give him a break.

Dude, he plays QB in the NFL. In the scheme of things, he leads the Golden Life. Golf aside, I don't think he's near as bad as people like to rip him for.

I don't get the personal hate directed towards Harrington...Anyone who has watched football for more than 10 minutes sees his obvious limitations on the field, but the way some of you act you would think that Harrington slapped your momma.....

And let me save some of you some time here. I know the posts are coming about the personal hate towards Vick......the anger and/or hate that was directed at Vick before he stepped on his wang was just as wrong......

"stepped on his wang"- a phrase my brother uses all of the time to indicate someone who has really messed up through their own actions........
