crackers and georgia football

on our first day of church in tuscaloosa, alabama 7 years ago, an OOOOOOLLLDD man came up to thomas and said, "hi, cracker! aren't you a georgia cracker?" the answer to that question would be yes, thomas is a white person from georgia, therefore making him by default a georgia cracker. and that's the whole story on that. it was funny. and a great way to be welcomed to a new area.

thomas is the biggest georgia fan in the universe amen. he's like those people from texas who think texas is on par with the garden of eden, but georgia is paradise on earth. and if heaven had a football team, it would be the georgia bulldogs. thomas believes, DIRECT QUOTE, "when good people die, they go to coach mark richt's house." he can't wait. on the other hand, he wouldn't pull for florida with one engine out on the plane.


saturday we attended the georgia spring football game in athens. we did all things georgia that day. we drove across the state like smokey and the bandit, we cut people off in atlanta traffic, we listened to outkast on the radio, we ate at zaxby's for dinner. on a unrelated note, i finally figured out how to use cruise control. a banner day.


the biggest relief for me was that there was no way for georgia to lose. and no fans would be picking fights. perhaps all teams should always play against themselves all the time? sunday would sure be a lot more spiritual around our house.


my favorite part was touring campus and thomas pointing out the butts-mehr facility. hahahaha. go ahead, say it again in your head.



it was no BYU (but, really what else is?), yet it was a pretty fantastic day.

Because we are all too busy saying Butts-Mehr and laughing.

you guys need to come down here for a visit. really. we can hit the beach everyday and eat tropical fruit from our backyard. you're just a (super long) day's drive away and you're welcome anytime.

I just had to pop over to your blog when I saw the title "I was such a good mom before I had kids". So funny! Great blog! Envious of your violin skills. ;)

Thomas looks so happy in that last picture. I can't decide if it's because he has such a hot wife, wonderful kids, is in UGA red and black or that he's on UGA campus and actually standing in the stadium.

What? You were here and didn't tell us? I was about to text you to you see what we could do to tempt you to come over but I see that UGA football is where it is at.
