Family confession

When Kenny Blank introduced his father, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, at a breakfast meeting hosted by Atlanta Jewish Life magazine on Wednesday, he made a confession.

"Until about four years ago, I didn't know a thing about football. I had never been to an NFL game," Kenny Blank said. So when his father bought the Falcons, Kenny's friends bought him the book "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Football."

Now he calls himself "a die-hard Falcons fan."

By the way, the magazine used the breakfast to announce that it is changing its name to American Jewish Life and that it is going to have national distribution.
