Full disclosure: I haven't been to Atlanta since I was 5 or 6 years old, so I must admit I've never seen the Georgia Dome, but come on, the thing was built in 1992. If it were a person it'd be just turning old enough to vote this year, and the Falcons need a new place?! I thought it was ridiculous that the Vikings wanted a new stadium, and theirs was built in '82. Sheesh.

He could have made himself more money than most of us dream of by letting the Patriots out of their lease, but instead he bought the team, than put up most of the dough for a new stadium (which let's be honest, was desperately needed) HIMSELF.
