It is remarkable how I start out watching a game thinking I won’t get my hopes crushed. We were tied at half 28-28. Then, we were down. I was thinking, gosh I could really just go home and go to bed. I can’t take this anymore.
But of course, we came back at the end. It was so close, we were down by three at the end and lobbed it to try a 3 and it missed and lost 68-65.
Football barely made it to a bowl this year. Basketball made it to the dance. It has all come to an end.
Good thing I just got my ticket order form in the mail!
Tara came in town for the SEC tournament! We’ve been friends since 6th grade. In 7th grade we dropped her brother off at Kentucky basketball camp and met Tubby Smith. I should scan that picture. I’m wearing overalls. But not just any overalls. Shorts overalls.
Moral of the story, Tara and her mom are obsessed with Kentucky basketball. They’re not alone. The whole Georgia Dome was blue.
After Georgia lost in OT while I was at work (and refreshing espn.com every 3 seconds), I made it in time to see Florida play Tennessee. Can I tell you how miserable this game was? Well, I will anyway if you keep reading. It was just horrible. Too much orange. Too many teams I hate. GA Tech might as well have been the next game.
At first I thought the two Auburn fans who were on their Kindles were weird reading during a basketball game, but then I thought maybe they were geniuses for showing their utter disgust for the teams playing.
On Sunday Kentucky played Florida for the championship. PTL Kentucky won.
I tweeted that I wore a Kentucky shirt to the game because I didn’t have a shirt that read “Anyone but Florida.” Then, I thought, why isn’t there a shirt that says this? Sloaner agreed. We really should start a company with that idea. It is genius if I do say so myself. This post will count as my copyright.
Times I saw Georgia play last weekend: 0
Times I saw Florida play last weekend: 3
But it was a great time with a great friend!
And aren’t they just adorable?
Maybe this will be me and Mr. Dr. dear one day, except we’ll be wearing UGA gear at the MNC. By golly, I love old people.
