Open Letter to Tech Football

Dear Atlanta, All Of Metro Area and Yellow Jacket Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight;

As you now know, our hero (Josh Nesbitt), who grew up in the very region that he currently resides this evening, is still a Yellow Jacket.

This is a known fact.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of the dog, Tiger, and Hokie fans.

The good news is that the blogging team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown From the Rumble Seat have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply deserve another Calvin Johnson.

You have given so much and deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:


You can take it to the bank.

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring MORE hardware to Atlanta, I can tell you that this ice cold beer in my hands has shifted our "motivation" to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.

Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there.

Sorry, but that's simply not how it works. You have to get through Bobby Dodd Stadium first.

This shocking act of barking and woofing from our home grown "rednecks" sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And "who" we would want them to grow-up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called "BCS Title curse" on the ACC.

The self-declared "Turkey King" will be holding on to the "curse" with his fans in Southwest Virginia. And until he does "right" by Atlanta, Beamer Balls (and his sidekick Dabo) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch.

Sleep well, Atlanta.

Tomorrow is a new and even brighter day....

I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:

DELIVERING YOU another ACC championship that you deserve...

Winfield Featherston

Majority Owner
