My whole twitter feed is pretty much worth taking some time to read. The ladies came out and played with the fire we been waiting to see. It's kinda like how you play your little brother in basketball. You never take it hard on him. Till he mess around and disrespects.

This is really creative. We all loved Martin growing up. They got all the details just right. I would have loved to have seen a cut scene in the middle. See them out act it out.  Maybe this one. The years not over but this is in the running for best of the year,already.They also have the screen with the black bars on the side. Just like when we watch Martin re-runs now.

On this day (June 30) 50 years ago. My favorite football team was created. Who knew that 50 years since it was birthed, we would still be waiting for that first ring. 

Professional football first came to Atlanta in 1962, when the American Football League staged two preseason contests, with one featuring the Denver Broncos vs. the Houston Oilers and the second pitting the Dallas Texans against the Oakland Raiders. Two years later, the AFL held another exhibition, this time with the New York Jets taking on the San Diego Chargers.

In 1965, after a stadium the Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium was built, the city of Atlanta felt the time was right to start pursuing professional football. One independent group which had been active in NFL exhibition promotions in Atlanta applied for franchises in both the American Football League and the National Football League, acting entirely on its own with no guarantee of stadium rights. Another group reported it had deposited earnest money for a team in the AFL


With everyone running in different directions, some local businessmen worked out a deal and were awarded an AFL franchise on June 7, 1965, contingent upon acquiring exclusive stadium rights from city officials. NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle, who had been moving slowly in Atlanta matters, was spurred by the AFL interest and headed on the next plane down to Atlanta to block the rival league's claim on the city of Atlanta.[1] He forced the city to make a choice between the two leagues. By June 30, the city picked Rankin Smith and the NFL.

The Atlanta Falcons franchise began on June 30, 1965 when NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle granted ownership to 41 year-old Rankin Smith Sr.. Smith an Executive Vice President of Life Insurance Company of Georgia at the time, paid $8.5 million the highest price in NFL history at the time 1965 for an NFL franchise. 

Former commissioner Pete Rozelle and Smith made the deal in about five minutes and the Atlanta Falcons brought the largest and most popular sport to the city of Atlanta. The Atlanta expansion franchise became the 15th NFL franchise, and they were awarded the first pick in the 1966 NFL Draft as well as the final pick in each of the first five rounds. The Falcons drafted All-American Linebacker Tommy Nobis from the University of Texas with the first pick of the draft, making him the first-ever Falcon.








The Atlanta Falcons Football Club received its nickname on August 29, 1965. Miss Julia Elliott, a school teacher from Griffin, Georgia was singled out from many people who suggested "Falcons" as the Nickname for the new Georgia NFL franchise. She wrote: "the Falcon is proud and dignified, with great courage and fight. It never drops its prey. It is deadly and has a great sporting tradition."



Notable season:
Atlanta exploded out of the gate, going a franchise best 8–0 and remaining the last unbeaten team in the NFL that year. Their hopes to get an undefeated season came to an end with a 27–31 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Julio Jones had a remarkable second year, grabbing ten touchdowns and 1,198 yards. The Falcons finished the season 13–3, and clinched the number one seed in the NFC playoffs.

The Falcons played the Seattle Seahawks in their first playoff game. Although they went down 28–27 with only 31 seconds left on the clock, Matt Ryan led the team to their first playoff victory, 30–28. It was the first playoff victory in the Mike Smith era.

The Atlanta Falcons then advanced to face the San Francisco 49ers. The Falcons seized control of the game early with a Matt Bryant field goal, a trio of Matt Ryan touchdown passes caught by Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez coupled with outstanding defensive play. By the end of the half, the score was 24–14.The tides of the game began to shift in the second half as the 49ers rallied back with a pair of Frank Gore touchdown runs. Atlanta's offense attempted to reply but were ultimately shut down by the 49er defense. A few series later, late in the 4th quarter with little time remaining, Atlanta found themselves in a 4th and 7 situation at the 10-yard line. The Falcons needed just 10 more yards to secure victory and advance to their first Super Bowl berth in nearly 15 years. Matt Ryan fired a pass to Roddy White which was ultimately broken up by inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman, resulting in a 28–24 defeat.

A follow-up to 2014′s “Shooting Stars” Pack, Nike presents the Air Penny “Sharpie” Pack, pairing the iconic Foamposite One with an all-new hybrid model aptly dubbed the Air Penny 6.

The Foamposite One appears in its original Orlando Magic royal blue-and-black colorway with the addition of black Tiger-like stripes along the ridges of both the medial and lateral sides. These markings are a homage to when a young Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway took a sharpie to his player exclusive sneakers to meet the NBA’s strict uniform policy of the time.

The whole world should just take a seat and let me cook some chicken. That's the way to solve any problem. Food. The leader of great bonding moments. I have been trying out letting the chicken get a little character on top. Also known to everybody else as smoking. I did this in the oven though. Wanna piece?

I really liking this song with the more I hear it.  I like that it's something you can hear and you just automatically jump up and start feeling it. Can we get a video?

If it's one thing that an NBA player can't do. It's dress. Good lord they can't be looking right at anytime. So they really need to just leave it to the powers that be. You rich. Hire a stylist. It will save you a lot of face. Out here looking like they wearing the curtains. I get that you tall, but you have to be 9 feet tall to fit the suits they come out in. My eyes will be hurting tonight.Be bold, just not too bold.

Growing up is a odd time for us all. Some of us, dressed in all the latest fashion. We all had that one person that looked like they just copied everything that they seem on MTV. Going to the store like: "Just give me the whole No Limit Records look". Who can forget when everything was Burberry. God, that was such high levels of ugly to see. Did I mention it was fake, I mean yooo.

One of the ugliest jerseys of the league, were the Hawks. I swear I would fall asleep watching Hawks games. The look was just too plain, I wasn't feeling it. Other people felt that way as well. Today that all changed. The Hawks now have a new look and it's BADASS. I am feeling this look so much. From head to toe it's fire. I will be buying some of the shorts to run the courts in. The socks too. Nice, Hawks nice.

Here we are, my old friend. We meet again. The bottom of the bottle, that really is the episodes of season three. I wanted to drink slow and told myself to wait. It started off good. I watched only one episode the first day. The next day I watched one and skipped a few (days). Then I slowly started to lose the control I once had.  One episode turned into three and next thing I know, I'm at the end.  Empty bottle and mixed feelings. 

That's me each time that a new season comes out. I always plan to take it slow but ends up watching it all. I think it took me about the whole week. So my spacing was pretty good. I'm not mad tho. I try to watch things in a timely matter. So many spoilers for no reason are filled across social media. I'm just filling my spoilers here on my blog. Well. more of reactions to the episodes. One by one. (This works best if you watch the episode while reading).

 After announcing the NBA off-season inspired design for Nike’s Air Foamposite One silhouette, here’s a closer look at the shoe dubbed “Gone Fishing.” Its unique ChromaFlair fish scale Foamposite shell is matched with a contrasting black trim and challenge red accents for a striking aesthetic. Further details such as the embroidered fish skeleton at the heel offers up a nod to the popular pastime adopted by many athletes during their offseason. Underneath lies an icy semi-translucent outsole, which aligns perfectly with the shoe’s water sport theme. The Nike Air Foamposite One “Gone Fishing” is set to release on June 27 for $250 USD at select accounts including Nike’s online store.

The 2014/15 NBA campaign may have come to an end, but that hasn’t stopped Nike Basketball from crafting new colorways of LeBron’s signature low-top. Here, the LeBron 12 Low takes cues from King James’ signature Sprite mix — which pairs the lemon-lime soda with a twist of natural cherry and orange flavors — to create the “Remix.” Opting for a predominately black upper, the kicks incorporate the bottle’s Green Strike, Hot Lava and metallic silver aesthetic throughout, throwing in a dash of Volt along the outsole and lining for good measure.

Look for the “Remix” edition of the LeBron 12 Low to hit Nike Basketball spots July 2 for $170 USD.

I just seen the commercial for this.  What Sprite is doing is bringing the ruckus, bringing the noise. In the form of artist cans. Looks to be the regular cans, that fill a 12 pack. No info when they will be hitting the stores. I'm guessing this week. You know I'm on the lookout.

They say in life that everybody needs an hobby. When I was younger, it was collecting cards. I guess I actually still do. On Madden. Smooth. Anyways. I started collecting bottles years ago. It's just something about them. As a designer I love to see creativity in it's pure form. So I love to collect bottles. Cheap and always filled with art. This is my recent pick up. Mountain Dew 'Dew Shine'. Not to be confused with 'Throwback back dew'. Which I also need to pick up next time at the store. Dew Shine takes it back to the mountains, when they used real sugar.   


Below you can find some of the "action" shots I took. I went all the way to the creek for y'all. Which is like a six minutes walk into my backyard. It seem only right. Gotta love that Georgia life.

 This has been a good time to be an America Outlaws. First, we take down FIFA and since then, the Fútbol Gods have been shinning down on us. 5-0 since it happen and showing no sign  of slowing up. That win against Germany got me going. I mean really got me going. Yelling at Germans in German and everything. Don't be mad, it was your B Team? It was only our B Team too ;) Catch my video after the break.

Nothing beats word of mouth at the end of the day. It's King. You get people talking and-- you get the right people talking and everybody will be going to see what the hype is about. I say the right people, cause some just don't have great taste. Don't want to waste time following a lead from them.   This is what brought me to checking out Power. Well reminded me to watch. I have been for a whole year, trying to get around to watching this show. I have loved it from the preview but never caught it on.  I kinda also forgot it was on Starz. I thought it was on Fox or something.

Maybe I should start this by stating that I only seen the movie once. I didn't even watch it all at once. I paused and exited out of the movie, three times. First I was sleepy, then I was busy, then I was waking up. This was over the time of two days.  That shows how great of a movie that it is. I loved it within the first section of watching.

Wait, what you mean 'Coming Soon'?  We need to have a date. I been waiting for this for such a long time. Since High School. My body has been ready. I seen the older films and loved them. So I know that this one will be just as great. I have watched this five times now. The setting, the building, the killing. Lord, bring it on.
