Falcons Now Lobbying For Super Bowl


After he broke ground for a new stadium last night, Falcons owner Arthur Blank followed a well-worn path in hoping for the perk that comes along with new buildings.

According to Tim Tucker of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Falcons used the occasionl of a glitzy prime-time shoveling of dirt to lobby for a future Super Bowl.

“Welcome to a typical evening in Atlanta,” Blank said at the outdoor event. “So for those of my NFL partners who will one day vote for a Super Bowl, this is normal weather in Atlanta — even in February.”
