Thirty-nine years ago a woman went into labor on her 25th Birthday. Eighteen hours later on the following morning she delivered her first child. She spent the next two and a half decades raising this son. She was a Bama fan.
Her own father had abandoned her family when she was in the ninth grade and left behind a chasm of missed experiences; birthdays, being crowned homecoming queen, graduations, and the like. Despite these shortcomings she idolized him till the day he died. His family hailed from the coal mines of Alabama so she followed the Tide and worshipped The Bear. Her father had instilled in her a love of sports at a young age, and throughout her life she shocked those she knew with her in-depth knowledge and understanding of a wide variety of sports.
I don’t get to casually browse the web like I used to (that’s what kids will do to you!), so I tend to miss videos like this unless they are pointed out to me. If you haven’t already seen it, do yourself a favor and watch a very enjoyable interview of both Herschel and Nick Chubb by Chuck Dowdle. I really enjoyed hearing from both past and present RB greats who are very similar in style and demeanor. Herschel’s dig at Tech at the end is the cherry on top.

Football Fanatics has St. Patrick’s Day UGA shirts. Red and black, and green? They go great with green beer. Or wear it to the Savannah St. Patrick’s Day parade! Do they still dye the river green? I’ve never been to it. Maybe one of these years. But enough about me! Go green!
UGA logos show up in random places on television from time to time. Here are a few screen grabs from various TV shows and celebrities sporting UGA gear. Click on the picture and then hover over it for more information.
