The Atlanta city council may have something real to chew on regarding the Atlanta Falcons stadium plan soon: Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has promised an actual financial plan for the project by the end of the month. Or rather, “a detailed review of terms of the conversation” with the Falcons. Which, not exactly the same thing. But at least it’s something to talk about, or rather, to not talk about, since wouldn’t the council really rather talk about what kind of goodies to ask for in exchange for $200 million or maybe $300 million or maybe more in public money?
In related news, the mayor of Flowery Branch, a metropolis of 5,600 people 50 miles northeast of Atlanta where the Falcons have their training camp, has said that he’d love to host a Falcons stadium, saying, “How cool would it be if the Superbowl were in Flowery Branch, Georgia?”
There are two possibilities here:
- The mayor of Flowery Branch actually thinks that the Falcons would build a stadium in his town.
- The mayor of Flowery Branch thinks that this is an awesome opportunity to get his town’s name in national newspapers in close proximity to the words “Super Bowl.”
Your call which it is. Though if the latter, he might want to spell it properly, or he’s going to miss out on the full SEO hit.
