FLOWERY BRANCH – Tell your preacher to let you out of Sunday service early.
Take the MARTA if traffic is your issue.
Cut the tailgate off a little bit earlier.
Basically, as Kim Zolciak sings, “Don’t be Tardy for the Party!”
Falcons coach Mike Smith, who is 18-3 in the Georgia Dome in three seasons, is asking the fans to be on time and loud for Sunday’s 1 p.m. game against the Green Bay Packers.
“I just want to talk a little bit about the upcoming game and how important it is for our fans to get out there,” Smith said. “We want it to be like Thursday night (against the Baltimore Ravens). That was a big advantage for us as a football team to have the fans in the stands, rocking and rolling.”
The Falcons are 8-2 and have the best record in the NFC. Green Bay is 7-3.
“It should be a good game,” Smith said. “The Green Bay Packers are on a roll. They are playing good football. It ought to be an exciting afternoon. We are hoping that everyone will come and help us win the game.”
