13. Sunday mornings are even easier with a few cocktails
Whether you’re recovering from last night’s bad decision, or going to a Falcons game, everyone drinks on Sunday.
14. We’re not saying ALL good hip-hop is from Atlanta...
... but thanks to T.I., Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Outkast, Young Jeezy, Cee Lo (and Goodie Mob), 2 Chainz, Akon, Soulja Boy, B.o.B., Lil Jon, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Jermaine Dupri, and the Ying Yang Twins, most of it is.
15. You are NOT in Hotlanta
Because no one calls it that. You may be in the ATL, depending on whom you’re talking to, or the A, but you will be straight-up shunned if you utter the “H” word.
16. Yes, we still go to Chick-fil-A
Have you ever had their waffle fries!? Or their Chick-A-Minis for breakfast? Don't talk to us about our local fast-foodery until you have.
17. We want to love our sports teams
We so want to be better than the fair-weather fans in your town (cough, Miami, cough), but it's hard when we've only won a single championship in more than 150 pro seasons. And when our NFL team's collapsed, the Braves are moving to Cobb county, and they're replacing our hockey team with one that plays... ugh, soccer.
18. We’re even less likely to take you Downtown the next time you visit
Right next to Centennial Park, we’ve got the world’s largest aquarium, a new ferris wheel, a new trolley line, The World of Coca-Cola museum, the soon-to-be-opened College Football Hall of Fame, CNN, a concert and basketball arena, and a new football/soccer stadium at some point. Please help us... and the out-of-towner who wants us to take 'em down there.
