HAPPY GAME DAY!

Remember Frosty the Snowman? Whenever the kids put the magic hat on his head, he would magically awaken, throw his hands out wide, and exclaim, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" Every Bulldog gameday feels just like that for me, no matter what how the Dawgs are playing, who they are playing, or when…as long as it is a Georgia Football Saturday, I can expect my cell phone to light up with several "Happy Game Day!" messages from my buddy Dawgs. Sometimes I’ll add something to the greeting, like a key to the game or a Munson-esque worry. If it’s a big rival, a la UT, UF, AU or GT, a little snark might be involved.

I originally wrote this last weekend, but was unable to post due to lack of internets connectivity. Being "in some dark holler where the sun don't ever shine" in the North Georgia mountains last Saturday night helped me relive some past Bulldog Saturdays from my youth. This entailed sitting next to the radio on my parents' mountain cabin porch, holding the antenna just so with one hand, my V&T in the other, trying to keep the volume down (especially my own). Except for the Boykin run, this was not a problem.

Here's to Happy SEC Game Day! I hope we've got a shot at turning this thing around.
