In the Duuurrrttttyyyy, but always a 49er

So I'm in Atlanta this week for work, so don't steal my stuff. This is my 3rd time here. I'm not too fond of this city, but it's nice to get out of town.

I took the red eye out of SFO on Wednesday morning. I sat next to 2-time Pro Bowl Strong Safety of the SF 49ers - Carlton Williamson. This was so awesome! 3 Super Bowl rings! I didn't know who it was right away, but you can tell this guy was an athlete. He's almost 20 years removed from the game, but it's always nice to see a hero from your favorite team. I restrained from testing his football knowledge, but I had so many questions (what was it like to play on such a good team? did Montana drive around SF coked up with police protection, can I see your Super Bowl ring?). He was a very nice guy who was returning home from a charity golf event hosted by Ronnie Lott. He chatted with me and talked about my job and his charity - All Stars For Kids, and his new job - VP at Waffle House.

Anyways, it's a little hot. I was here in March, and the weather was much nicer then. Hopefully, I can get out of here by Friday. Things that I need to do while I'm here:
Fogo de Chao's (Brazillian Steak House)
Coke Factory
Turner Field Tour (The Braves are out of town again. Argh!)
