Phil Foley grew up in New York, rooting for all those typical New York sports teams. But when he moved to Atlanta right after the Olympics, one of the first teams he ever covered was the Atlanta Hawks. The lovable loser Hawks have grown on Phil, ever since he set foot in the old Omni to work his first game as a sports journalist. He brings you his insight from writing about the Hawks for the now-defunct PA SportsTicker for over 10 seasons with a bit of that New York tell-it-like-it-is attitude. Phil's expertise is not just limited to Atlanta's basketball team. He also covers the Atlanta Thrashers and the Atlanta Falcons for Examiner.com.
