You'd expect the heavily scrutinized young architect of the new era Atlanta Falcons to be lighting one Pal Mal off the other somewhere in the bowels of the Georgia Dome right now, mere hours before the seemingly unstoppable Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers visit Atlanta for a nationally broadcast game.
After all, this game could single-handedly answer the question posed by the Packers' blowout playoff win in January: Did the Falcons' risky upgrade of Julio Jones matter enough to compete with the league's best? Not Thomas Dimitroff, who prefers to play pranks on local Atlanta media instead. Maybe this is how a general manager stays loose:
"COME ON SCHULTZ, WE'RE GONNA LIGHT THIS BAG OF POOP AND LEAVE IT AT MARK BRADLEY'S HOUSE! Hey, did I ever tell you about the time we called the cops on Fred Hickman during two-a-days? Yeah, turns out he has a record. Got kind of weird. Dude was never chill with me after that."
