The SEC championship is an "automatic sellout," along with the Chick-fil-A Bowl and Chick-fil-A Kickoff, which this year "comes on a weekend when the Braves are home and NASCAR is running at Atlanta Motor Speedway." Bradley: "I've been around this nation of ours, and I can tell you there's no other major city ... that behaves as we do on autumn Saturdays.
