The Cubs broke a 100-plus year streak of no championships when they beat the Cleveland Indians, but that’s not all that impressive compared to what the Falcons did Thursday Night against the Buccaneers.
Long-suffering Atlanta fan and SB Nation journalist Steven Godfrey set the stage for last night’s history-making win on Twitter, and continued to cover the story throughout the night. We bring you his coverage of this important milestone in Atlanta sports history, and welcome you to share how you celebrated wildly and with reckless abandon last night.
It's one of sports' longest droughts: Tonight the Atlanta Falcons have a chance to overcome 725 days of anguish since they last beat Tampa.— Steven Godfrey (@38Godfrey) November 3, 2016
Where were you back in 2014, when the Falcons last won against the Buccaneers? I was so young, then. I didn’t yet know about the misery of the drought to come.
An entire city of the best sports fans you can imagine have waited so long. The eyes of the world are on Raymond James tonight https://t.co/OneyyTZKEh— Steven Godfrey (@38Godfrey) November 3, 2016

You don’t see a historic day like this very often, so I invite you all to take the rest of the day off from work. Your bosses will understand.
