It may seem incongruous that the first real heat of summer in Atlanta, rather than the first nip in the air, helped the gay flag football league kick off fall college gridiron action. But weather didn’t hinder Satudray's SEC-centric Margarita Bust one bit.

Players and refs from the National Flag Football League of Atlanta who are fans of UGA, Alabama, Auburn and other regional favorites – as well as those sexy transplant fans from other conferences who we let live down here – all came together under the guise of bottomless margaritas to talk huddling and butt slapping.

The “tailgate” partiers mixed with the other gays and lesbians who gathered to enjoy the open-air space at Zocalo. It was just last month that the NFFLA guys held their own season-closing blowout.
