The Atlanta Falcons are a professional American football team based in Atlanta, Georgia. They are a member of the South Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Falcons play their home games at the Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta, but construction is likely to begin in 2014 on a new stadium with play beginning in the 2017 season. Their headquarters and practice facilities are located at a 50-acre site in Flowery Branch, Georgia.
The Falcons joined the NFL in 1965 as an expansion team, after the NFL offered then-owner Rankin Smith a franchise to keep him from joining the rival American Football League (AFL). The AFL instead granted a franchise to Miami, Florida (the Miami Dolphins). In their 45 years of existence, the Falcons have compiled a record of 298-402-6 with division championships in 1980, 1998, 2004, and 2010. Their only Super Bowl appearance was Super Bowl XXXIII.
Over the last four years the Falcons, under General Manager Thomas Dimitroff, Head Coach Mike Smith, and Quarterback Matt Ryan, have been one of the best franchises in the NFC. Since the start of the 2008 season, the Falcons have recorded four consecutive winning seasons for the first time in franchise history. They led the NFC in number of wins during that period with 43. Mike Smith's 43-21 regular-season record in that span is the fifth-best in the league. The Falcons had the NFL's second best winning percentage at home during the period of 2008 to 2010 with a .833 percentage. The Falcons have qualified for the playoffs three times (2008, 2010 and 2011) during this period, but lost all three in the first roun

Austin is an American professional basketball player who plays for the New Orleans Hornets. Rivers led Winter Park High School to back-to-back Florida 6A state championships in 2010 and 2011. He also played in the 2011 Nike Hoop Summit for the USA National Team, and in addition, Rivers also participated in the 2011 McDonald's All-American Game. Rivers was one of the top rated high school basketball players in the class of 2011, being rated as high as No. 1 by Rivals.com.
On September 30, 2010, Rivers committed to Duke University over Kansas and UNC. His commitment was widely covered by ESPN and various other sports networks given his status as the Class of 2011's top recruit.
As a freshman, Rivers played in Duke's exhibition games in China and Dubai during an international tour in August, 2011. In the first game against the China men's national basketball team, Rivers scored 18 points on 8-15 shooting and led Duke to an 77-64 victory. In the second game (also against the Chinese National Team), Rivers scored 12 points in a 78-66 victory, making several rim-shattering dunks during the first half. In the final game played in Beijing, China, Rivers chipped in 11 points as Duke topped the Chinese, 93-78. In his team's 86-66 victory over the Dubai National Team, he scored 16 points, including 10 in the second quarter, on an array of impressive drives. At Duke's annual Midnight Madness event, Countdown to Craziness, Rivers had 14 points and 5 rebounds in 24 minutes to lead the White team in the inter-squad scrimmage. On February 8, 2012, his 3-point basket as time expired allowed Duke to overcome an 82-72 deficit with 2 minutes to play in an 85-84 victory over the University of North Carolina. The victory ended North Carolina's 31 game winning streak at the Dean Smith Center.
When Austin was in college he was a beast. He could shoot, dribble, and sometimes get rebounds. His father, Doc Rivers, also played basketball. That helped Austin. When Austin was drafted, it was cool because he's teammates with Anthony Davis. Anthony is also a cool player.
