Good News: Atlanta Gets College Football Hall of Fame

Bad News: Construction is expected to be completed in 2012, just in time for the end of the world.
The College Football Hall of Fame hopes to draw far more visitors than it ever did in South Bend by moving to a new facility next to Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta.

Hall of Fame officials held a news conference Thursday to formally announce their move to Atlanta. A new building will be constructed alongside the park and is expected to open in 2012, within walking distance of popular tourist attractions such as the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola.

The current college football HOF is in South Bend, IN, near Notre Dame University because somebody in their infinite wisdom thought that it would attract a lot of visitors. Notre Dame? Are you serious? Have you looked at their stands during a game? If it wasn't for the fact that they snookered NBC into a long term television contract I doubt any of us would ever see their games except to watch to see which team is beating the stuffings out of the "perennial powerhouse" on any given Saturday.

Oh yeah....Go 'Ramblin Wreck
