    It's a Mercedes.

    I got a kick out of it when it was advertised that the new home of the Atlanta Falcons would have a Chick-fil-A restaurant. The Falcons, of course, mostly play on Sundays.

    They have college football and soccer and other events at the stadium, so they'll sell plenty of chickens. But the full-page ad in the paper and the TV commercials were all about Chick-fil-A being in the new home of the Falcons, without mentioning the other events.

    Probably a franchise/concessioner that has permission for Sunday sales.

    They never said it's a sin to eat chicken on Sunday.

    Nope. The Chick-fil-A at the stadium is corporate owned (Chick-fil-A is headquartered in Atlanta, which is why they want to have a presence in that stadium) and said they will not make a Sunday exception for this or any other location.

    Wow.
    That's cool.
    He's got enough money to live up to what he believes in,
    I respect him for that.

    Yeah, the Falcons have 8 regular season home games. Turtle's correct .. with all the added events, they'll have plenty of sales.

    Folks in the southeast really respect Chick-fil-A for being closed on Sun. So do I ...

    The retractable roof on this stadium looks neat! And the 360 degree hd video halo board must make it really enjoyable from the stands.

    Don't look now but I think Jerry World just got unseated as arguably the best stadium in the NFL ...

    I wish they were open on Sunday, but that's for my own selfish reasons (luv me some Chick-fil-A). I don't begrudge them at all for not being open on Sunday, though.
