PHOTO: Samuel L. Jackson Leads Georgia Dome Revival Before Falcons Vs. Eagles

Samuel L. Jackson has had it with all these m-------------' (<--- probably too many dashes) Eagles in this [same expletive] Georgia Dome. Before the Atlanta Falcons welcomed Michael Vick for his first game in Atlanta as an opposing starter, team spokesman Jackson brought a choir to midfield and let a pregame pep rally.

Here's a photo, via @bubbaprog:

Jackson, an Atlanta native, was a Falcons fan back when he attended Morehouse College. More recently, he's starred in the team's series of "Rise Up" commercials, which this year added Jeff Foxworthy. Super glad Foxworthy didn't introduce NBC to Atlanta tonight.

Actually, NBC's mostly just disappointed to see Falcons fans rooting for the Falcons and booing the other team.
