So sorry, Joey.ginepri_blog_small.jpg

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback, Joey Harrington, lost his match against Rick DiPietro in “King of the Hardwood” balloting. The final tabulation was overwhelmingly in favor of the NHL star – 156 to 80.

But there is one local pro left in the voting. Robby Ginepri, a tennis player from Kennesaw, surprisingly defeated Pats quarterback Tom Brady by a nearly two-to-one total to move into the Sweet 16. He now faces rugby player Luke O’Donnell (left) in this latest round.

Polls stay open until Wednesday. Check out the other seven parings in this round and enjoy the Sweet 16 photo gallery.
