I'm writing this article for three reasons. First, being a fan isn't easy. Your team disappoints you, makes you cry, and effectively rips your heart out once a year, unless of course they run the table and win it all. For that reason, it's important to remember the good times. They are undoubtedly what carry us through the bad times.
Second, while we have disagreements from time to time, we're a community. Not to get all sappy and lame and stuff, but everyone who posts on this blog is a Falcons fan for a reason. Whether you're an Atlanta native or just a masochist, the Falcons have captured your heart. Each of us have unique experiences that keep us coming back. It's important that we share those experiences, because ya know, it brings us closer together.
is in rehab is taking a well-deserved day off and I'm trying my best to fill the void.
With all that said, I invite you to share your favorite Falcons-related memory in the comments. I know we've done stuff like this before, but I'm very impressed each time we do. Our readership ranges from Vick era newbies to old timers who've endured decades of mediocrity. There's an incredible wealth of experience between us, and it's worth acknowledging.
