The less said, the better, because Falcons football is kicking off in about ten minutes and you want that to wash over your like a tidal wave.

A win today gets the Falcons to 1-0 for the first time in a little while, shows they can beat a tricky NFC contender, and prevents us from getting super depressed to kick off the year. We’ll be rooting hard for them in a winnable game, and we hope you’ll do the same right here in our first open thread of the year.

Go Falcons!
