Road Games Travel Tips: Discover Southern hospitality in Atlanta –

Regular Season, Week 1: Seattle at Atlanta Falcons, Oct. 27, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, 10 a.m. Pacific

SPONSORED – I’ve worn two suits in Atlanta.

Two very different suits.

One was a purple track suit with white stripes that I work with a purple hat that I wore to a pair of football games involving my alma mater, the University of Washington. The other suit was paired with a tie and worn to cover professional football games involving Seattle.

And to be totally honest, I haven’t had much luck in either attire. Washington went 0-for-2 in those games, losing a college playoff game to Alabama in the Peach Bowl in December 2016 and then dropping a non-conference game to Auburn in September 2018.

On the professional side, Seattle has won its two most recent regular-season games in Atlanta, including a 27-20 victory midway through last season, but that success is outweighed by two postseason losses in this city, first in January 2013 and then again, four years later.

So let’s hope for some better hospitality this tie around in the opposite corner of the country
