Farmer2 Posted November 12, 2010 Share Posted November 12, 2010 As some of you may remember, I was the lucky recipient of a free ticket to last nights game, compliments of FalconFanSince1970. I've been to a few Falcon games, but never in Atlanta. Man, was that a great game for my first trip. It was definitely worth the 8 hour drive each way. For those of you who haven't been, you really need to find a way to go!!When I stepped off the MARTA and saw the dome and tailgating crowd for the first time, it was like coming home for the first time. It was the first time I've ever been surrounded by Falcons fans. I met a guy named Felix, and tailgated with his crew for a couple of hour before meeting up w/ FFS1970. It was a great time, but not sure I really needed the two shots of 1800, considering I was driving back to Indy after the game. Luckily, I had plenty of time for it to wear off. Once inside the dome I felt like a kid in a candy shop. Watching warm-ups was worth the drive down. We had awesome seats. Obviously, you guys all know how the game went. With 1:05 left, I'm thinking, well it was still a great experience, but it would've been nice to win. Then Matt Ryan did his thing. It was also really cool for me to see Deion being inducted into the ring of honor. I know many disagreed w/ him being in, but for me it was cool to see b/c Deion is the reason I'm a Falcons fan. I've always lived in Indiana, and was drawn to Deion from Sportscenter highlights as a kid. Too bad I tore up all my Deion memorabilia after he went to the 49ers. Anyway, I couldn't have asked for a better trip. Matt Ryan played out of his mind. I thought Mularkey called his best game of the year. The people I met were great, and I've got a new friend in FFS1970. I'll see you up in Indy next year, and the tickets are on me. Thanks again for a trip I'll never forget!!
