SAN DIEGO – My pals Ray Glier and Knox Bardeen have written a book titled, “100 Things Falcons Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die.”
Glier is a freelance journalist who has contributed to The New York Times, USA Today, MSNBC, the Atlanta Business Chronicle, The Miami Herald, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, among other publications.
Bardeen (thanks for the kind words in the Acknowledgments section) has covered the Atlanta Falcons beat since 2009. He previously worked for AOL’s FanHouse and currently is the Rapid Reports Correspondent covering the Falcons for CBS Sports. He lives in Woodstock, Georgia.
The book is billed as the ultimate resource for true Falcons fans.
The book is full of interesting facts about the team and list the No. 1 thing to know as “Finally, a Super Day.” In the first chapter they look at the team’s first and only trip to the Super Bowl, a 34-19 loss to the Denver Broncos.
