I was fortunate enough to attend Sunday's game against the Packers: hands down one of the most memorable games I have ever been to.
I was a bit dismayed when minutes after the game, players were asked what they thought of the fans who left early. That should never have been a story line or question. Yet as I went around town the day after, I had people (non fans) ask if I really stayed to the end.
Of course I did, as I did when Tony Romo fumbled years ago in the playoffs. I was also thrilled that for the first time we kept the opposing well-traveled Packer fans out of the stadium. There were thousands and thousands still on hand to watch Terry Bradshaw give the NFC trophy to our team.
Of course we were there. We are 12s; we live and die with our team. We don't ever give up on this team. The fans were there till the end.
I was thrilled to see all my season ticket holder comrades and neighbors there to celebrate potentially the best Hawks game ever.
