It's Our Year!

Today, for most of us, is a very exciting day. The first game of the season. Hopes are high. We have every faith that this is our team's year. And even if it's not, we are dressed to the nines. Because southern football, specifically SEC football, is in a league of it's own. The tailgate is nearly as important as the game itself. Recipes that have been tested and tweaked for years are only made finer by copious amounts of bourbon. And everything from your skirt to shoes to the grill to the chair to the silverware are all monogrammed in team logos and colors.



Of course, I live in the stinkin' north pole, so I will be watching games by myself at home. In my corner of the world, dressing up for a game is when you wear one of those wretched, shiny jersey things. On as....gasp....Sunday. I know, sacrilege!



So to everyone attending games today. Wear sunscreen and go team! And to my fellow Georgia fans...Gooo DAWGS! Sic 'em! This is sure to be our year!

Living in NH, there is no SEC excitement :( We're all about the NFL but I love reading about the bloggers who do enjoy the SEC.

Now, if I was a fan, Georgia would be my team! I was born there after all!

I am so excited that the season is finally here. SEC football is the best too.

Hotty Toddy!!!

Very exciting day unless, like me, you are a UNC football fan! Best of luck to your team.

I love that everyone is in the football mood and they have their game on, etc....but it I wouldn't be me if I didn't say, "GO AGGIES".

We've already got my 26 month old trained well. She can say, "Go DAWGS! Sic' Em! Woof Woof Woof!" like the best of them. :) I'll have to vlog it sometime this season. :) It's too cute!

I live in your area. Our school district uses that same logo and same colors. My kids are both involved with sports now. I recently found myself embroidering that logo on all sorts of things for school...

People will often ask me if I'm a Georgia Bulldogs fan when I'm out an about if I'm wearing something with the logo on it. I decided that I might as well be a fan since I have the goods and I don't have any other favorite college team. So I'll be routing with you!

My favorite part of football is still the food though :)
