Matt ryanThe Atlanta Falcons had a great deal of pomp and circumstance prior to their Thursday night football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Check out the above video of Matt Ryan coming out of the Falcons tunnel prior to the game in the midst of a fancy pyrotechnics show and actually catching one of the sparks directly in his left eye. Luckily, the spark didn’t do any damage that we are aware of and it in fact seemed to spark Matty Ice on the field. Matt had two touchdown passes and 110 yards in a mere 9 minutes of play following the incident.

Note to Arthur Blank: MORE PYROTECHNICS!
