      Banner ads and security questions   01/31/2017

      So as of today we have added Google Ads to the site in order to help with the rising costs of the Hawksquawk. All members without a current subscription plan will see ads but you can easily have them hidden if you get a membership, which starts as low $2.50 per month.  We also added security questions for your profiles to protect your personal and billing info. There are a handful of questions that you can choose from and it is mandatory to fill these out. Rest assured that all answers are encrypted in the database so they are not seen by anyone and will help to protect your account from being hacked.  Any questions please feel free to send a PM to Dolfan23

  1. I used to be very good friends with the owner of Atlanta Coca-Cola Bottling and also with some the major players at Coke through my work raising funds for non-profit organizations in Atlanta (Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Children's Healthcare, Reinhardt University, etc.). We also found it difficult to get money from Coke because their answer was always "We don't want to be perceived as a 'local' company by sponsoring local organizations. We want to be seen as a national and international company, so we try to sponsor things that are bigger than just supporting Atlanta teams or organizations."
  2. It's undoubtedly the Russians ...
  3. At the game in Chicago with my two sons. One son moved here from Atlanta recently, as I did ten years ago. Other son is in town from D.C. We're on the center line, five rows back. Literally hundreds of Atlanta fans are here. Brad Guzan is from Chicago. Go Five Stripes (we're all wearing our jerseys)!!
  4. I grew up in Chicago and had a brother who worked at Loyola. Always helps to pick a few potential upsets, so I just went with the heart on this one. Longtimefan.
  5. I'm in. I think I recall doing well last year. Goal is always simple - beat Diesel. :)
  6. Damn ...
  7. Bud has a pretty crappy lineup in here for crunch time. He got the memo ...
  8. I just gotta' say ... much credit to leathalweapon3 for maintaining his enthusiasm and creating such excellent Official Game Threads continually. Takes a lot of fandom to stay so engaged when our team is not generating much excitement these days. Much thanks!
  9. I believe that in some states going that much over the speed limit is regarded as a felony.
  10. Hi Dolf,

    I am no longer seeing the Twitter feed on the right side of the page.  Has that feature been eliminated?  I posted in another section and others say they too have lost it.  Any help on this?

    Thanks for everything you do.

  11. Geez...Baze is even worse in person. Why does he ever bother to shoot?
  12. Not a great game, to be honest. Collins s showing some nice things. Baze is so bad. Damn. But - here at the game repping my Hawks with my son. No death threats from the Bulls fans... yet!
  13. Watching the game! Nice first half.
  14. Your first novel! Excellent beginning to the new season. This Yankee moved to Atlanta in 1977. Then 31 years later, as an empty nester, returned to Chicago in 2008. Tonight, wearing our Hawks gear, my youngest son and I will be watching the game via a completely legal feed (!) on his big screen TV. Thursday we will then be at the game in Chicago, again wearing our Hawks gear and cheering loudly. Go Hawks!!
  15. My two sons flew to the game from Chicago and Washington DC. They said the game, the crowd, and the new stadium were amazing!
