As a great American once observed, life moves pretty fast, and, if you don’t slow down every so often, you could miss it. Consider this your opportunity to slow down briefly on a Wednesday morning, in order to take in the following data that you otherwise might have overlooked:
- This has been quite a week for individual Bulldogs. We all know about Hines Ward’s successes on the dance floor, but Cassidy McComb was honored as the Southeast Region Gymnast of the Year, Teresa Edwards was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame, Marta Silva Zamora rose to No. 1 in the Golfweek performance rankings, Javier Garrapiz was named SEC Men’s Tennis Player of the Week, and Bridget Lyons was chosen as one of the SEC Community Service Leaders of the Year.
- I’m not trying to rile anyone up over the perennial college football playoff debate, but I think it bears noting that no one ever had to write about recalibrating what the BCS National Championship Game means.
- As NCT noted already, G-Day will feature fan favorites David Greene, D.J. Shockley, and Eric Zeier showing off their quarterback skills in Sanford Stadium (again) to raise money for the Johnathan Taylor Fund. It’s all part of a full yet inexpensive weekend in the Classic City that includes a Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall open house. Be sure to join us there!
I don’t know about you, but I feel smarter just for knowing all that. Consider yourself fully briefed and prepared to meet your day!
