Georgia students showed up late to school and blamed the Falcons

The worst part about your team losing a heartbreaking game is getting up in the morning and remembering it actually happened. That feeling was apparently too much to bear for a few students at an Atlanta-area school. 

The Greater Atlanta Christian school shared a photo of the excuses their students gave for being late on Monday morning. While most kids’ excuse for being late was just “late,” a couple blamed their tardiness on the Falcons. 

“Falcons depression” is keeping it very real, but “failed to rise up” gets bonus points for creativity.
