College Football Hall of Fame Sensory Inclusion Free Month Visit

The College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta is an amazing sports museum and is offering free entry presented by Chick-fil-A and Coca-Cola for the month of August as they celebrate their birthday.

State Farm Arena opens tonight when the Atlanta Hawks play the Dallas Mavericks after a $200 million arena refurbish of which $142.5 million came from Georgia public funding, something I am fully against because billionaire owners don’t need the money, right.

Unfortunately, with the new sponsor and all the technology-driven bells and whistles like the fan...
