Cocktail Thursday: Coastal Carolina Edition.

 
There are a ton of questions surrounding the Georgia Bulldogs as they prepare to take on the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers. Pondering all of those questions is enough to drive a man to drink. I can help you with that.

When you get right down to it this Georgia football team just needs a win. It doesn't really matter who that win comes against. Granted, it would be better if the win came against a school that I don't suspect of actually being an 18 year old's ruse to convince his parents that he's studying at a real college, not just spending their money getting blitzed in Myrtle Beach with that fat kid from high school.

"Have you actually ever met anyone named Muhammed?"

"Have YOU actually ever met anyone who lost to Coastal Carolina?"

"No, that's why we scheduled this dumb frickin' game! "

This game could turn out in one of two ways [JoeMorgan.jpeg goes here]. Either we win, which at this point is a damn sight more than we've done so far, or we lose, in which case the vast anti-Richt contingent which before the South Carolina game encompassed a full 20% of the fanbase (and 97% of bloggers desperate for web traffic) gets its wish. It's win/win from a net/net perspective.

The benefits of scheduling games against solid competition early in the year are lost if you can't beat that competition. The cupcakes of the college football universe serve an important purpose for teams like the Georgia Bulldogs. At a certain point you just need to play some freshman, rest some bodies, work on your execution, and notch one in the win column. I repeat: there's nothing wrong with eating a cupcake.

There's also nothing wrong with drinking one. So this weekend enjoy your chocolate cupcake. You'll need:

  • 1 & 1/2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. Kahlua
  • 1 & 1/2 oz. creme de cacao
  • 5 oz. chocolate ice cream
  • whipped cream and chocolate shavings for topping

Place the first four ingredients in a blender and mix on low speed until smoothly incorporated. Pour into a chilled glass and top with the whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Enjoy.

It's indulgent. It's decedent. It won't in any way demonstrate whether or not you're a competent SEC football team. But go ahead and enjoy it, because for now it's the best you're gonna get.

Until later . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!
