Yesterday, I was listening to the podcast Ludakit posted just so I could hear someone who was as upset about the sorry state of Georgia's football program as I was, when something caught my ear. Ludakit mentioned giving up Krystals if the Dawgs beat South Carolina. That struck me as a wonderful idea, and, never being one leave any good idea unstolen, I decided give up things I enjoy for every big win as well.
I love Krystal as much as the next guy, but I live in Oxford, Mississippi, and the nearest Krystal is in Tupelo. Giving up Krystals in exchange for a victory against South Carolina would be too easy. I wanted to give up something I would have a really tough time living without. So, I decided to give up Chick-fil-A for the rest of the season if we can pull it out on Saturday. In addition to giving up the heaven on a bun that is Chick-fil-A in exchange for a victory, I've compiled a list of everything I plan on giving up after each big win. Y'all should join in on the fun. Maybe it can reverse Georgia's fortunes. I mean, if a single Bama fan confessing to his unmanly activities resulted in
an incredibly humiliating defeat that eventually sent the Dawgs into a downward spiral from which they have not yet recovered such a resounding victory for the Tide, think of the effect we can all have if we each agree to give up something we enjoy for a victory. Apparently, goat roasts aren't working, so why not?
Without any further ado, here is my list of sacrifices for the season...
South Carolina: Chick-fil-A
Mississippi State: Coca-Cola
Florida: Barbecue (including Brunswick stew and ribs)
Georgia Tech: Videogames (appropriate considering the opponent)
If Georgia, by some miracle, ends up winning the SEC championship, I will give up beer until baseball season. If the Dawgs manage to run the table and go 13-1, I will give it up for an entire year. For a guy who traveled to Munich just to visit the Hofbrauhaus, this is the ultimate sacrifice, but it would be worth to see the Dawgs hoist the SEC championship trophy and win a BCS bowl.
