Our First Falcons Game

In the midst of all my Christmas spirit in the past few posts, I almost skipped right past the Falcons game we went to last month. For the past few years, we've been wanting to go to a game, but trying to coordinate a Sunday home game with our Gator football travel schedule was near impossible. Once we lined up the Gators' and Falcons' schedules earlier this year, there was only one home game we could attend, and it was against the Giants, so we got our tickets months in advance to make sure we actually went!



Our seats were up in the nosebleeds, but we still thought they were pretty good. We had a great view and our section was pretty entertaining - the cops were called over and a few guys got thrown out for being completely wasted obnoxious fans.




Bo has played fantasy football for as long as I can remember, but retired this year due to inexplicable reasons still unknown to me, and I usually do not follow the NFL at all until playoffs. We grew up a few hours from Miami but weren't necessarily Dolphins fans, so we have adopted the Falcons as "our team". Obviously I use that term very loosely. Generally, we just root for the Gator alums on whatever teams are playing :)







Final score, 34-0! We were pretty pumped to see a shutout for our first game. Go Falcons!!

  1. Fun! I have never been to a Falcons game, eventhough I grew up in Atlanta. But I was at the Dome for NYE and the Chickfila Bowl Game!

    1. I agree :) I hadn't been to an NFL game in a very long time and was happily surprised with how much we enjoyed it. And now we are itching to get back!

  3. I was at that game, too! I have some awesome pictures of Sad Eli on the sidelines.

    It drives Stephen crazy, but I cheer for Gators on all teams. I know as a Falcon fan we don't want the Patriots to keep winning, but I love my Gators.

    1. Oh cool!! Seriously - we need to work on our coordination so we can actually hang out at all these events we both go to :) And of course, go Gators! I will always root for Gators over NFL teams.
