Red & Black

Its a big game for my Dawgs tomorrow.
The SEC championship game.
And, if we can beat Alabama...
We head to the National Championship!

As a little girl,
my daddy made sure to raise me as a Georgia Bulldawg fan.
He took me to games,
"between the hedges."
I remember one game specifically.
I must have been about 12 years old.
It was cold, it was windy, it was rainy...
but we yelled and screamed,
and cheered on our Dawgs.
Today, I'm blessed
that my 85 year old daddy and I still love
watching the Dawgs together.
Daddy doesn't make it to the games anymore.
But he never misses a Saturday the Dawgs are on TV.
My daddy gets all the credit for making me the
football fanatic I am today. 
My absolute favorite part of Fall...Football.
But most especially college football.
Even more...SEC football.
But the beloved Georgia Bulldawgs.
I sure hope we win tomorrow.
It would be a special special day for my Daddy...
and for all the Bulldawg Nation.
Our hopes are high.
Our excitement is over the moon.
