It's Memorial Weekend and it's also the only time I watch Indy racing, which would be really fun to try once. I mean, 230 mph in a torpedo with wheels sounds like fun, right? Right?!
I think it'd be fun to try once. I've always loved the sounds of those engines. In any case, Falcons news is once again scarce, if only since most of it gets covered on here before Saturdays, but let's see what NFL related news I can drum up for ya today.
ESPN: And what better way to start your Saturday than with another story that'll grind your gears! Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said some things he shouldn't have, and Gene Wojciechowski doesn't approve. It's about time somebody started telling some of these owner's they're doing it wrong.
AJC: The economy is taking its toll on ticket holders. That's stating the obvious, but there's some interesting numbers in there. For instance, both the Braves and Hawks lost a greater percentage of fans than the lowly Thrashers, who will soon no longer be with us.
Mocking the Draft: MtD grades out the entire 2008 Falcons draft. It's a shame Chevis Jackson didn't catch on, but that draft still amazes me at all the quality players we were able to get out of it. It's just another man's opinion on the topic, but unless you want me to start critiquing movies, this is what we've gotta deal with.
TMZ: A rather interesting story out of TMZ, former Falcon Warrick Dunn was pulled over for having windows that were too dark. Dunn felt like the situation was brought about in a way other than the pursuit of justice, and of course that could lead to a major issue by itself.
Augusta Chronicle: Joe Johnson (Not of the Hawks) of the Augusta Chronicle writes this little tidbit about a former Falcons cheerleader who was arrested as part of a chop shop ring. One of the darker tales of someone formerly associated with the Falcons, but it happens.
