Today, the Atlanta Falcons will be honoring Roddy White and Michael Vick with a press conference and ceremony, unofficially enshrining both as Falcons in their retirement. It’s largely symbolic, but it’s also damn cool.
Naturally, many of you have been asking where and when you can watch this happen in real time, and we’re happy to say we have your answer. If you tune in to 11 Alive this afternoon starting at 1:30, or visit the team’s Facebook page, you should be able to see the whole thing.
White and Vick are both franchise legends, with Roddy White obviously headed for the Ring of Honor down the line, and I’d say both are deserving of the honor. White is the team’s all-time leading receiver in every category, and it’s fair to say that Vick put the Atlanta Falcons back on the map after their post-Super Bowl swoon.
Congratulations to both, and be sure to tune in!
