So we’re back from Kentucky!!! And if you follow SEC football, you know that UGA kicked the assular area of UK, which is awesome not just because it made the game that much more fun, but because UK is Ashley Judd’s school, and even though she is a basketball person more than a football person, her school’s assular area was kicked. So SUCK IT, Ashley Judd.
Since this was my first UGA game, and it was an away game, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I kind of anticipated that we’d be in our black and red gear, alone in a sea of blue. But as soon as we were within sight distance of the stadium, it was clear that Dawg fans travel well. There were lots and lots and lots of UGA fans there.
But you know what happened? When Mr. Mock and I were standing outside the stadium, looking at our tickets to figure out where our seats were, the NICEST KENTUCKY FAN ON THE PLANET came up to us, and with her southern twang said, “Y’all look lost.” And before we could even say that we weren’t, she said, “Y’all come over here and have some jello shots and chili,” and she took us by the arms and led us to her family tailgate. And there, we were welcomed into the sea of blue by the NICEST PEOPLE IN KENTUCKY, who fussed over us like we were long lost relatives, and who fed us chili and corn salad and jello shots, and insisted that we be in their family photos, and you guys, it was just the best time ever. I had already been drinking Mr. Mock’s bourbon concoction on the walk from the car to the stadium, and the jello shots capped off my buzz nicely.
We hung with our newly adopted family for a good 45 minutes or so, and then went inside for the game, while they insisted that we come back afterwords, no matter who won, so that we could eat and drink some more.
Here’s some pictures of our new friends. TELL ME these aren’t the nicest people you have ever seen photographed IN YOUR LIFE:
I love them SO MUCH.
See – this just proves that Dawgs and Cats can get along. 🙂
The game was so much fun. Mr. Mock was just BEAMING with happiness to be at a UGA game, since it’s been basically a decade that he’s been to one in person. And we were in the visitors’ section, and all the UGA fans were super fun, but this one was my favorite:
That guy was on his feet, dancing and air-spanking and cheering and grinning the ENTIRE GAME. He was almost as much fun to watch as the game itself.
Anyway, the Dawgs won, and it was just the best time ever, and I hope we get to go to another game soon because I am HOOKED.
And this was just the perfect way to start off what’s going to be a totally splendiferous week, because Tuesday Governor Christie is coming to be the keynote at the state dinner, and I’m going to attempt to hug assault him, and then Wednesday we are off to Sin City, and there is absolutely no way that we won’t have enormous amounts of fun there, because that is what we do.
Of course, I have to get through two grueling days of work first, but STILL.
