Everyone who knows me knows that I haven’t been the biggest football fan in the area. But boy, they’d be surprised to see me now as I’m decked out in Falcons shirts and a Matt Ryan jersey. Someone very dear to me has gotten me into watching the Falcons this year with him, and I have thoroughly enjoyed. The only time that a game was missed was during Steel Magnolias, but I kept my cast informed of the score through the help of a very trustworthy smartphone.
It’s been an exciting year for the Falcons, hasn’t it? For the first time in franchise history, they are 8-0 (knock on some wood so it’s not jinxed). Even a newcomer such as myself knows this is an exciting thing. Tight end Tony Gonzalez really wants to close his career on a high note by making it to the Super Bowl. He’s been my favorite to watch this season and even though this is my first season actually watching football without the big cameras, I’ll be sad to see him go. While I don’t know all the stats and facts that go with every team in the league, I sincerely hope that Tony Gonzalez is finally able to make it to the Super Bowl.
