football is like life – it requires perserverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.”
~ Vince Lombardi
Riseup And Be Counted
Who knew I would be interested in football when I reached adulthood. I not sure how it happened except that is was something about Atlanta Falcon football. I can’t even tell you the year or day I watched a game for the first time. All I remember was that Steve Bartkowski was quarterback and it was 1985 or so. Ever since I’ve been a die hard fan. I try to get to one or two games per season; otherwise, I’m front and center watching on TV and talking shhhh on social media.
The highlight of my career as an Atlanta Falcon football fan is that doggone jingle/gospel featuring Samuel Jackson. It’s simply genius. It’s become Atlanta’s anthem and I have to say it gives me chills to hear it.
Above it all, I’m one of many Georgia peaches gracing Atlanta (passionately known as the A-T-L) and I love my city. I’m proud to call this place home and when you watch this video, you’ll see other noted Atlantans singing the same song.
Whatever city you grace, stand up and and be proud!
