Greetings, Falcoholics, I’m back with a further edition of The Falcoholic’s “Fan Spotlight.” This segment highlights Atlanta Falcons fans from about the globe and shares how they became a fan of the group and their thoughts on the franchise.
This week’s Fan Spotlight is on Vince Augello. Vince is an Atlanta Falcons fan living in Lancaster, Penn., about 45 minutes west of Philadelphia. He’s 27 years old, a father, a meals reviewer, and a DJ. His father is a New Orleans Saints fan, so you can think about how tense it gets in their household. I asked Vince some concerns on the state of the franchise and some of his a lot more individual stories as an Atlanta Falcons fan. Let’s get began.
How did you turn out to be an Atlanta Falcons fan?
I became an Atlanta Falcons fan about a year or two prior to Super Bowl XXXIII. I was about six or seven years old at the time, and I was a enormous Energy Rangers fan. My favored Energy Ranger was White Ranger for the reason that he morphed into a Falcon. Me becoming a kid, I believed it was the coolest point ever that there was an NFL group nicknamed the Falcons.
Who is your favored Atlanta Falcons player of all-time?
Some of my favored Falcons of all time contain Jamal Anderson, Mike Vick, and Tony Gonzalez. But I was a enormous D-Block fan for the duration of the 2012 season. I even purchased a Sean Weatherspoon Jersey for the reason that of it. “Go ahead and grab ya self a soda out da ice chest.”
What do you feel of the Falcons’ offseason moves so far?
So far, this offseason I’ve been mostly pleased with the moves that have been created. I’m glad a single of the very first moves was receiving rid of Steve Sarkisian – THANK GOD!! I’ve never ever noticed an offense appear a lot more confused than they did beneath him. Letting go of Robert Alford was the band-help we have been all waiting to get ripped off. Yeah, the Brady choose-six was good, but it went downhill quick soon after that. I was really disappointed when they let go of “Money” Matt Bryant. That a single hurt deep, haha.
What’s your favored Atlanta Falcons memorabilia?
Some of the finest Falcons stuff that I have contains the 1998 NFC Champion hat and t-shirt, Mike Vick “The Run” autographed photo and a personally autographed Matt Ryan jersey. 1 of my finest good friends in higher college, his parents went to higher college with Matt Ryan’s parents. They took my jersey with them on trip for Matt to sign it.
What’s your favored Falcons story/memory?
Some of my favored Falcons memories would be the 1999 and 2017 NFC championship games. Also, the 2012 Divisional game versus the Seattle Seahawks. I was also at the final Mike Vick game as a Falcon, prior to the dog fighting scandal occurred. After, I even got to play catch with Ovie Mughelli at Lincoln Economic Field. This previous season, I got to meet Matt Bryant at the game in Washington.
