Happier times
Annnnnd it's over.

The Atlanta Falcons couldn't best the San Francisco 49ers at the Georgia Dome. Thus ends the team's hopes of visiting the Super Bowl in New Orleans.

Fans are tossing jerseys in the trash. Samuel L. Jackson has said hasta luego. And sports reporters are tweeting photos of mysterious tanks that would have been used during some sort of victory celebration. The city weeps.

Says Grantland staffer and CL contributor Rembert Browne:

Let's hope, Rembert. Let's hope.

UPDATE, 7:45 p.m. And some bad news: According to WSB-TV, a 49ers fan allegedly stabbed a Falcons supporter in the "throat area" outside the Dome.
