Go Dawg's....Sic 'em


Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is doing a "Show us your Life" favorite football team day...I just had to jump on this train!!

We love the Dawg's.....really have no choice in the matter! My husband grew up a Dawg fan....a lot of his family went to school there....he's always been a "Dawg". If you live in Georgia.....your a Dawg fan, 'cause that other school down here is just not even worth mentioning! I am a transplant fan so to speak. I grew up a Hokie...and I still love me some Hokies.....but I cheer for the Dawgs! For several reasons.......my husband is sick if they lose....my house is just not it's normal self if the Dawgs are down.....and my 18 month old will yell at the TV like his Daddy if they lose...for real!!

I do love them though and really want them to win. I love going to the games.......the sea of red and black....the girls dressed in their dresses and boys in their ties....it's just a fun atmosphere. I haven't been able to go to too many games because I am always either pregnant or have a newborn......and well, the tickets are too expensive and everyone we know that has tickets...they use them. We jump at the chance to go though.....wherever they may be playing.

My husband loves the Dawgs and their coach Mark Richt...who is an outspoken Christian. This was my husbands dream school and he came very close to playing for them....he even went on his recruiting trip there.....but because of his poor grades was unable to go....of course this was before God saved him:).I know he still gets sick thinking about the opportunity he lost, but it really has given us a good example on teaching our children how important it is to do well in school!!


SO tomorrow...I will be rooting that Georgia kills Tennessee.....that Cox has an unreal game....that it's not even a contest....and that my husband keeps his shirt on(yes, he has been known to rip his shirt off in angst..hey they tore their clothes in the Bible when they were upset...same concept)!!!

Go Dawgs.....Sic 'em!!!!

We got to go to G-Day last spring with some friends of ours and we had a ball. The kids loved being able to run around the stadium....seeing UGA....and just hanging with friends. The pictures below are some of the ones we took there....great time had by all.
