So You're Going to the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party...

A few years ago, former UGA President Mike Adams tried to get them to stop calling the Georgia Florida game the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. Maybe that's why he's no longer the University President... If you're piling in a car and making the ride down to Jacksonville this weekend, here's what you need to know!

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.

an ugly rivalry // if you need to know how to spot a Gator fan, 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..
LINDSAY SCOTT LINDSAY SCOTT! // in the category of Larry Munson calls I can recite by heart -- this is probably number one. back third down on the eight, in trouble it'll give you goosebumps the stadium, well the stadium fell down. He even explains how all the Georgia fans stay up in St. Simons + Jekyll Island man, is there gonna be some property destroyed tonight. HE EVEN SAYS DAWGS. ON. TOP. Bless it, I miss Larry. 

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?

  3. ALL of the cuteness is in that last video. "gators wear jean shorts" so true, little man... so true. I'm just glad I moved and didn't have to graduate from Parkview (and wear the awful orange). Even though theirs is more of an Auburn orange. it's still orange. and it's still terrible. have fun this weekend!

  7. I do really love that whenever they interview Florida fans they ALWAYS seem to be the most redneck folks they could find...
