It's that magical time, BuckHaven!

Houses divided. Tailgates. Sideline coaching.

Wherever your allegiances lay, it’s time to grab the pom poms and plug in the crockpot. Even better, suit up and hit the gridiron, court, pool or gym to hone your own personal athletic goals and enjoy Atlanta’s slightly cooler temps. In this issue, learn about how Meetups can help you find your next workout partners or even a kickball team to join nearby.  If running is your thing (or if you’re hoping it will be your thing), join a group that leaves from Road Runner Sports. Meet store manager Sean Peterson and join one of his many running events.

Our sporty coverage this month brings you an introduction to Brian Gregory, Buckhead resident and Georgia Tech basketball coach. He gives us an insider’s prediction for the Yellow Jacket 2015 season.

Back on the gridiron, we bring you a peek inside the Georgia Bulldogs Playbook, a book focusing on the greatest plays along with detailed player formations for each play. That’s serious business from college football historian Patrick Garbin.

To help you get into the groove, we are thrilled to offer YOU an inside tour of the new College Football Hall of Fame, through the eyes of Buckhead resident and CEO, John Stephenson.  Take your family and friends down to explore on a bye day and enjoy 15 percent off with the code LIFESTYLE15. We’ve got a bit of sports fever, this month and are also offering your family a chance to win a Braves package including four terrace level seats, parking pass and access to the 755 Club for the October 1 game against the Washington Nationals.  Go to and click on the banner to enter.

Have a sporty month and GO Rocks, Wolverines, Britons and Ducks (Plymouth Salem High School, University of Michigan, Albion College, University of Oregon – my home teams and alma maters!).
