a not so neutral location // okay. supposedly Georgia Florida is played at a neutral site. That's not true, Jacksonville is in Florida. It's also only an hour and a half from Gainesville, aka The Swamp. It's five and a half hours from Athens. However, the stadium is split up ticket wise, 50/50.
check out Sarah's description, be on the lookout for jorts. This rivalry is probably the biggest one we have. I mean, I don't even want to cheer for Florida when it comes down to SEC vs Non-SEC, but I do. We can't even agree on the record. Georgia claims the first meeting was in 1904, and the record stands with us leading 50-40-2. Florida, on the other hand, claims that first game in 1904 didn't happen + that the record is 49-40-2..
okefenokee oar // up until 2009, this game was played without a trophy, but that's around the time Mike Adams thought he should try to get everyone to stop calling it the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail party. We really weren't his biggest fan. Anyways, the Okefenokee Oar is a 10 foot wooden oar that has logos for both Universities on it. It's silly, but aren't all rivalry trophies?
gators wear jean shorts // it's the truth man, I've seen it. In that picture up there I'm in the corner because we're actually trying to get a picture of the guy behind us who's wearing orange. denim. pants. not just orange. not just jeans. orange. jeans. ORANGE. don't get me started on orange.. also, just ask this little nugget okay?
If you're looking for me, I'LL BE THERE! watch for me on TV + stuff, maybe they'll have picked up the story of my lucky dress. I promise I'll try really super hard not to get in any fights. Linking up with Sarah + Karli! What games are you excited for this weekend? Will you be chanting gators wear jean shorts just slightly less adorable than that little nugget?
