An Alabama student to represent the Falcons?

Vinny D was amazed no doubt at being first, and I certainly understand. I’ve been there myself, so I can speak from first-hand knowledge of the feeling. But I can’t help but think that he was expressing the same strong emotion also to the scope, depth, and soaring originality of Ledbetter’s all-to-short report. For example, Ledbetter could have elaborated on the times when Lofton and Mughelli get to messing around, funing each other. I bet they have a time. There were just so many more equally interesting, fascinating items he could have included. But, alas!

JB Falcon..the Alabama girl was the only one who could actually READ the cue card and talk at the same time.

I am ashamed to confess this but that Party in the USA song does sort of get in your head.

Rebecca Hill is not only the only Georgia girl, she’s the best of the three.

My 11-year old is no longer a Miley Cyrus supporter.

Well boys and girls I am about to call it a day. It is good weather outside so I think I am going to roll down the windows and boom with the Miley Cyrus.

Who the heck is Miley Cyrus? Duke Ellington is on my I-Pod.

Delbert, it’s nice to see that someone has good taste in music.

As for Lofton, I wouldn’t mind if he was a Conway Twitty fan as long as he keeps playing like he has his first two years.

Damn right, Chuck!

[...] AJC: Curtis Lofton answers five questions that have gloriously nothing to do with football. All five are enlightening, but his iPod revelation/all-time favorite Falcon (Hammah Montana) = all you need to know about our middle linebacker. Is it badass that the heart of our defense listens to music you pretend to be embarrassed to have even heard of? I hope the team takes the field to “Party in the USA” next year just to see you squirm. [...]
