Funny Personal Rich McKay Story


Recommended Posts

I was in Atlanta with my dad for our Week 3 matchup against the Saints in 2018. 

We arrived at the stadium early and went to the Home Depot tailgating area to have some Bud Lights and get ready for the game. We were confident we were going to beat the Aint's.

There were a few ex-Falcons in the area we were in - I remember seeing Finneran, and a few others that I'm blanking on now.

Then we saw Rich McKay walking by us. We gave him a thumbs up and a simple "Hi Rich".

His response:

"Don't be scared, guys! Okay? Don't be scared!"

--

We weren't. Until then. That was straight up projection by the man lol. I truly believe that energy he put out in the world is what gave Drew Brees the power to pull off a g-**** spin move on our defense to win the game.

Morale of the story, if someone says "don't be scared", they're probably scared.

By way of contrast, my family and I went to the last regular season game at the Georgia Dome in 2016 against the Saints.  Before the game, we were hanging around the little park outside doing the football throw games, etc.  My son was seven and went to the facepaint place, but he sneezed and got paint in his eyes.  He started screaming, my wife started screaming...I was looking for a bottle of water or something to pour on his face, when I suddenly heard a voice that sounded like a mountain of velvet, calming but with a warming power like blankets that just came out of the dryer, and it said, “Peace be unto you, child....let he who has eyes, see.”  Instantly, my son stopped screaming.  He slowly pulled his hands off of his face, and he could see again!  I turned around and saw Tony Martin standing there!

I said, “Oh my God, thank you Tony Martin!”  And he said, “Where I am needed, always shall I be,” with a broad smile.

I asked him, “How do you think we’re going to do today?” And he said, “I see glory today, and glories to come...but then the future becomes cloudy.”

And like that, he was gone.

I met McKay once walking around before a game. I was surprised no one knew who he was so me being the “obnoxious fan” I went up and asked for a picture. He was nice as could be but wouldn’t stop trying to get me to buy season tickets. I told him if they had anymore high paying jobs like his in the organization that I could have then I would think about it.

This is severely underrated.
