Atlanta's given the world so much to be thankful for... Coca-Cola... the world's first 24hr Cable News Network... Tyler Perry (hey, two outta three ain't bad), but this holiday season you should probably take a moment to consider all the other things the ATL gives us to be grateful for...
We’re thankful to have the Braves here in Atlant... err, nevermind.
We’re thankful that the Falcons haven't even bothered to get our hopes up this year.
We're thankful that The Hunger Games, Dumb & Dumber To, Anchorman 2, etc. have given so many of your friends the chance to be real Hollywood extras. Well, not technically Hollywood extras, but still!
We’re thankful that the Georgia State Patrol might be too busy looking for the Atlanta-native who set the new Cannonball Run record to notice us sneaking into the HOV lane on the Downtown Connector.
We’re thankful that a 200ft Ferris wheel somehow appeared in Downtown almost overnight.
We’re thankful for the demolition of the Georgia 400 toll booths, but think you should take that 50-cents you’re saving and put it toward the speeding tickets you’ll get thinking it's safe to cruise into Buckhead at 85 mph.
We’re thankful Blondie’s still alive and doing her thing at the Clermont Lounge... just not thankful enough that we're actually gonna go see a stripper pushing 60 instead of hitting one of the city's other sweet strip spots.
We’re thankful Mayor Reed has vowed to end PARKatlanta, but just like getting a bright yellow boot put on your car, there's no way that happens, right? Right... wait, what's that wheel? Damn you PARKatlanta!
Anything else you’re thankful for, Atlanta?
