ATLANTA - The hometown Falcons jumped on the San Francisco 49ers 17-0, and everyone in the Georgia Dome thought that the southern birds were going to annihilate the team from the Left Coast.
But the guys from Alcatraz City had other ideas as they fought back and ended up winning the NFC Championship Game 28-24.
Reports out of Atlanta, the city that Yankee General Tecumseh Sherman burned to the ground back during the Civil War, are that about 17 die-hard Falcon fans fainted as the final whistle blew.
One fan who was sitting next to one of the faintees stated that all of a sudden he saw the old woman sitting beside him say "Damn dammit!" and then she tumbled over spilling her 24 ounce cup of Bud Light Beer.
Another fan said that he saw one man take out a container of Flintstone Vitamins and he was in the process of swallowing them all when a hot dog vendor saw him, put down his tray of hot dogs, and lunged at the man managing to take away his vitamin container before he could take even one.
Several sources stated that local Atlanta hospitals reported dozens of fans being treated in the emergency rooms for first, second, and third degree trauma, incoherent shock, and ipso disappointment.
After the game the 49ers quarterback, with the highly unusual name, Colin Kaepernick was asked how he felt. He smiled as he chugged two bottles of Orange Gatorade and said that he felt as happy as Melissa McCarthy at a cornbread eating contest.
SIDENOTE: The 49ers, who are coached by Jim Harbaugh, will now travel down to New Orleans where they will play in Super Bowl XLVII on February 3rd against the Baltimore Ravens who are coached by Jim's brother John Harbaugh.
