If you follow me on Twitter -- and frankly, there's really no reason you should as I rarely twit anything other than "Me too!" or "Yeah, I hear ya" -- you know that I'm very excited that college football starts today, particularly the Georgia Bulldogs. The #1 ranked Georgia Bulldogs!! Woo hoo!
Over the summer we lost our beloved mascot, Uga VI, and yesterday they finally named his successor, Uga VII (officially named Loran's Best). Isn't he the cutest?
He'll be officially installed at center field before today's game after a video tribute to Uga VI. You can call us silly if you want, but I doubt there'll be many dry eyes in the house. I would give just about anything to be there.
I promise I'll try not to be too obnoxious about our #1 status. I know it is a fleeting thing and could even be gone by the end of the day depending on how we play. Also, I learned my lesson the hard way several years ago. Mr. Daddy's brother is a HUGE WVU fan and he and I used to have very spirited debates about who would be victorious in a UGA/WVU matchup. I used to talk a LOT of smack. When we finally had the chance to play them in the Sugar Bowl in January of 2006, the Bulldogs didn't even show up. I mean, they DID show up, obviously, but not to play. It was a massacre and I had to eat a lot of crow. So, lesson learned.
Anyway, if you need me today, you'll find me huddled around the radio, cheering on my Dawgs.
Goooooooo Dawgs! Sic 'em! Woof, woof, woof!!
