You can't spell Sugar without UGA!!!!

If any of you have known me for any length of time, you know that my family and I are huge bulldog fans. And those of you who have known me since I was little, know that this has been a life long love for me! But I have to admit, at the beginning of the game, I was sure wishing that someone else was playing Hawaii. I love to root for the underdogs, and I was conflicted in my emotions. I, of course, wanted Georgia to win, but I also wanted Hawaii to complete their perfect season. And then when you hear about all that Colt Brennan has been through and how he's turned his life around, I wanted this to be a great final game for him. But on the flip side, UGA has several players who were playing their final game as a Bulldog, so what's a girl who loves the bulldogs but also has the God-given gift of mercy to do?
Well, thanks to Hawaii's #29 Keenan Jones, it didn't take me long to get my emotions straight! When He took that unbelievably cheap shot on one of my favorite's, Mikey Henderson #27, a senior playing his very last game as a bulldog, their was no more thought of Hawaii's perfect season. If that's how you want to play, then sic' em dawgs and show them beach boys how it's done in the SEC!!!!
(Yes, I have the gift of mercy but I also have a very competive streak, go figure!)
And as many of you probably already know, UGA 41 - U. of Hawaii 10

Glory, Glory to Ol' Georgia, G-E-O-R-G-I-A!!!!!!!

Wow, you all are going skiing, what a wonderful opportunity. How blessed you all are that you are able to do that. Ski slopes in the winter and beaches in the summer. You know how to live it up. Congratulations and have a wonderfull deserved time away. I love you all.

Ouch! What a game. Sorry your team did not win. I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving that sweet comment. I also appreciate the scripture reference I will make sure I add it to my scripture cards.

Yea, we are a Georgia family! My husband went to UGA in the early 80's.

We live in the North Georgia mountains.

Just thought I'd poke my head in and say hi.
