I am the "old man" of the FTRS team. I saw GT lose to Johnny Majors in 1956 as a young boy. I almost never missed a home football game for the next 15 years. I eventually moved away from Atlanta for work reasons, then retired to eastern NC, where I sail and cycle when I am not watching sports on TV. I travel to the Triangle for games when Tech is playing Duke or UNC or NC State.
