Born in 1970 in Chicago but we moved to Dunwoody in 73. Was a little kid watching Bartkowski, Andrews, Jenkins and been a fan ever since. I was sitting behind the Cleveland dugout when Tom Glavine pitched the shutout in game six to clinch the World Series for the ATL's only world championship.

Watched the Falcons in 1966 at 6 years old in Savannah, GA (my birth home). My main memories however begin when Bob Berry was quarterbacking a few years later. Been reading these boards for quite some time before really posting. 

Seems to me that this forum is comprised of fans at civil war with each other....the "optimists" vs. the "realists". I think that most of us in this particular thread probably are in the "realists" category after what we've witnessed watching the team over so many years.

We are a unique group and know some real pain. This is a potentially historic time (you know why I say "potentially"). I was born in SWATS at Holy Family Hospital and raised in Decatur on McAfee Rd. Where are you from?!?!?

Born at the same hospital,  lived in Dixie Hills 4 years before moving to the Swats near Greenbriar Mall. Went to Continental Colony elementary on Hogan Rd, Bunche Middle school off Niskey Lake, Douglass High off Hightower  (Hamilton E Holmes for you younger Atlantans and transplants)!

Born in Moultrie GA in 1971 at the old county hospital. Lived in ATL area several times in cities like Morrow, Jonesboro, and most recently Conyers and College Park. Currently in San Antonio TX. I have been a Falcon fan for life and will be one forever. I have been on these boards for awhile, just hardly ever post.

I am born and raised in Asheville, NC. I'm not a Georgia resident but I've been a Falcons season ticket member starting in 1984. I hope that qualifies me. 

My dad was born at Grady, and brought me to my first game in 1975. I've lived and died with this franchise for many many years. I should get extra credit for having to live in the heart of a division rival, it ain't easy.

I too was born in SWATS at Holy Family Hospital which eventually because Southwest Atlanta Medical center before it closed.  I too was raised in Decatur and spent a few years growing up on McAfee as well.  I'm in Snellville now.

Born in Saigon, 1963.  Pop was one of Kennedy's 'advisors'. 

Moved to South Florida '66, then to Gainesville Georgia in 1968. 

First Falcons game I remember was barely eeking out a win against the Bagheads, 62-7, in 1973.  Watched it on a tiny black-and-white tv.  Been a fan since.

I bleeds red and black folk believe that.
