I agree. Thanks for taking the time to let the fans know about the work that the Falcons players and cheerleaders are doing in the community, D Led. Positive things like that don’t get much attention these days.

Roddy hangs with Vick

Lofton hangs with Cheerleaders and sick kids

Advantage—–Lofton! He would have won for the cheerleaders alone but the sick kids really pushed him over the top.

Great to hear good people doing good things in the community. Love to see players being involved in the community when their mere presence can have a positive influence on people’s lives. Way to be versatile DOL.

While others hang with heros at the Children’s Hospital, Roddy hangs with convicted felons.

Smitty better make his move fast, before Roddy falls into the same trap that other members of Vick’s “Crew” have fallen into over the years.

The Zone is an amazing facility (donated by Garth Brooks and Troy Aikman) – the Child Life staff at CHOA make such a huge difference in the life of those kids. So many of the Falcons have been down there to spend time, and even Ochocinco recently spent time with the kids at the Zone.
