Kelsey was born and raised in Gwinnett County, and now resides in Buckhead. She typically drives to OTP where she works as an IT recruiter. In her free time, you can find her at any Atlanta sporting event, throwing takes on Twitter dot com or hanging out in the Highlands or West Midtown with all her favorite pals in the world! I asked Kelsey some questions on the state of the franchise and some of her more personal stories as an Atlanta Falcons fan. Let’s get started.How did you become an Atlanta Falcons fan?I grew up in a college football only household so I had to venture into pro sports on my own. Sundays were always for spending 10 hours of the day at church. I didn’t start watching the Falcons until I was in high school. Being just from outside of Atlanta, it was easy to root for the Falcons. I take GREAT pride in our city so becoming a fan was the easiest thing I ever did. Is it emotionally great? Not always. But worth it.Who is your favorite Atlanta Falcons player of all-time?My all-time favorite Falcons player is such a close race, but I have to go with Julio Jones. My entire dad’s side of the family went to the University of Alabama, so when Julio got drafted it was so exciting for me. I have a large cut out of Julio’s head that I take to every single game with me. He is such a freak athlete and I always wait in anticipation for what he is going to do every Sunday. Such a selfless, team player. It also helps that he played for my favorite college team and coach ever. SmileWhat are your thoughts on the 2019 Offseason?The 2019 offseason is one that has definitely captured my attention more so than others. We are coming off such a disappointing season, so it is very important to me that the right roster moves and staffing moves are made. I completely trust TD and DQ to draft well, and I hope they live up to that trust. I hope this offseason that our guys are pissed off with the season they had and they can shift their mindset to try everything to not have that type of season again. Can’t be like those dirty rivals and go 7-9 for three seasons in a row.What’s your favorite memory as an Atlanta Falcons fan?My favorite memory as a Falcons fan is tied. The first half of that game we do not speak of is first. I know I will probably catch so much crap, but I have never been so happy watching a game. We played a damn near perfect half. Any Falcons fan can admit that was the greatest time of their life. Obviously Youth Brett Favre Jersey , we all slipped into a life changing depression after the first half but I can still remember the good moments of that game. The second is obviously the game that put us there. The 2017 NFC Championship when Matty Ice threw for almost 400 yards and 4 TD’s. My man Quintorris Lopez Jones with 2 of the best TD’s of the day. That was all around a perfect game. Fathering Aaron Rodgers was such a joy to watch, and a moment I will never forget.Who should the Atlanta Falcons select in the 2019 NFL Draft?The 2019 draft is so interesting because the Falcons are in the awkward mid-round pick spot with many needs to fill. My dream pick would be Quinnen Williams but we all know he will not be available. I would like Ed Oliver to really help the defense out or Jonah Williams on our offensive line.Where can your fellow Atlanta Falcons fans find you?Thanks everyone for reading! If ya’ll would like to read my terrible sports takes, then you can find me on twitter at @kelseytaysutton. You can also follow my personal Instagram account @kelsey.sutton. Remember that cut out of Julio’s head I was talking about? He also has an Instagram account and you can find him at @bigheadjetjones. If yall ever see me at a game then please come get a picture with him! I will leave all of my fellow Falcons fans with this message. We don’t recognize Gucci Mane anymore since he played at the New England Patriots Super Bowl party. Also remember it could always be worse. We could be Saints fans living in New Orleans.I greatly appreciate my friend Kelsey for sharing her thoughts on the Falcons, her personal stories and for being the focus of this week’s ‘Fan Spotlight’ article. Make sure to give her a follow on the accounts she listed above!If you’d like to be considered for a future ‘Fan Spotlight’ or know of someone who deserves to be, let me know on Twitter where you can find me at @EvanBirchfield. Thanks for reading! ATLANTA (AP) — When Super Bowl 53 kicks off less than two weeks from now, legions of police and federal agents will be positioned to protect fans inside and outside the Atlanta stadium where the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams face off.The game will bring international attention, which makes it a potential target for terrorism, said Brian Levin, a former New York City police officer who is director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.“We fortify these events because we have to,” Levin said. “They’re the brightest bug lamps that attract an array of possible extremists and also unstable people as well.”Authorities won’t discuss specifics of their security plan. But they say they will safeguard areas beyond the downtown Mercedes-Benz Stadium and make officers visible across the city. The city’s police department has worked with more than 40 state, federal and local law enforcement agencies to develop the plan, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields said. Officers will work 12-hour shifts and will “position ourselves so that we can react immediately to whatever scenario we are confronted with Stitched Matt Bosher Jersey ,” Shields said.The chief said law enforcers have been preparing for two years, during which time they visited Super Bowls in Houston and Minneapolis to observe safety measures taken by their counterparts.Recent attacks in the U.S. and around the world have taught authorities that they must be prepared to defend more than the obvious targets.Atlanta knows this well. During the Olympic Games in 1996, a man set off a pipe bomb at Centennial Olympic Park, a downtown public space that lacked the high security of the athletic venues and Olympic Village where athletes were staying. Shrapnel from the bomb tore through a crowd of concertgoers on July 27, 1996, killing a woman who was hit in the skull with a nail, and wounding more than 100 others.“Our main focus at that time was on the Olympic Village,” said Richard Stogner, who was in charge of finances for the Olympics and as such was involved in security meetings weeks and months before the games. Stogner witnessed the deadly violence from his office overlooking the park. He recalled walking onto his balcony and seeing a large cloud of white smoke and at least a couple of people lying on the ground.Shields said there was a desire at the time to make the park “family friendly,” so the decision was made to keep security more lax there.“In hindsight, that was a mistake,” she said.In the days leading up to the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, the park — which has been closed off with high chain-link fencing in some places — will play a central role as it hosts numerous concerts and other game-related celebrations.In addition to increased security around the city Youth Matt Bosher Jersey , Atlanta Fire Rescue will put some of its paramedics on bicycles so they can reach patients in areas crowded with pedestrians, Chief Randall Slaughter said. And Shields noted that a joint operations center that will also include officials from Georgia Power and the city’s mass transit system is set to open Saturday.Authorities will not take their preparations for granted, however, because terrorists “never stop creating, they never stop thinking,” Shields said.In Atlanta in 1996, “the guy just decided that he wanted to blow up people, so he set a bomb off,” Stogner said. “That’s hard to prepare for.”During a soccer game between France and Germany near Paris in November 2015, it was outside the stadium where suicide bombers blew themselves up, killing a bystander. And in May 2017, it was as fans left a concert by singer Ariana Grande in Manchester, England Stitched Ricardo Allen Jersey , that a bomb was detonated, killing more than 20 and wounding more than 100.In recent years, threats have evolved from large terrorist groups to small cells or “lone wolves” who can be harder to identify. Some become radicalized on the internet, borrowing hatred from other groups and blending it with their own views, Levin noted.The motives of others are difficult to discern, such as the sniper in a Las Vegas high-rise who opened fire on an outdoor country music concert, killing 58 people and wounding more than 800 others in October 2017, Levin said.Cedrick Alexander, a former public safety director in the metro Atlanta county of DeKalb, said he believes Atlanta “is going to be one of the most-prepared cities in America” because of its experience handling national events.But he notes that the lesson of the Las Vegas massacre is that “you have to be prepared for anything.”
