Last year I provided you some nice little recipes for dealing with Gator meat. I have not tried dipping any gator meat into Gordo’s multiple varieties of dips, but I imagine it would be delicious. This year, I thought I would share with you ways to use the left over skin of the Lesser Cousins of Crocodiles. Many people may look at you styling your gator skin accessories and think badly of you unless they know that you are a DAWG fan and then they will understand (I don’t think you will get any slack from PETA, but any group that recommends a robot mascot cannot be given any credit). So without further ado, here are some great ways to use the scaly, dry, nasty skin of a gator:
<!--[if !supportLists]-->1. Wallets/Money Clips: What a better way to show that you own the Gators than by flashing your cash, credit cards, ATM cards and Identification than in the hide of your KILL. Bi-folds, Tri-folds, even wallets attached to chains…most any way a man like to carry cash can be found in gator skin.
Purses: Same goes for the women Dawg fans, show your dislike and domination over the hated Gators by throwing some dead alligator over your arm and letting the world know that you are a gator hating, loyal Dawg fan. They can dye the skin in most colors to match anything in your wardrobe. So buy more than one, but make sure you have one in Red and one in Black
<!--[if !supportLists]-->5. <!--[endif]-->iPad/Tablet covers: Imagine walking into your favorite Café, ordering your favorite coffee blend from the barista, sitting down, and pulling out your alligator leather clad tablet and surfing the morning away. Something tells me that whoever can be the first sell these in Athens will make a MINT.
Briefcases/Attaché Cases : For our professional fans out there, imagine the look on those counterparts from the University of Florida when you lay your gator skin case on the business table and begin to dominate them. The initial shock of your gator case on the table will be just like Gurley or Marshall ripping off a 80 yard rush on their first touch of the game. TKK you must have one of these.
Boots/Shoes/Heels: All Right guys. We all secretly want to wear alligator boots and dress shoes. Nothing says your hatred for walking on the dead skin of your most hated rival. So get yourself a pair of boots or dress shoes and WALK-ON, WALK-ON, WALK-ON. Now onto the better side of this option; imagine your wife/girlfriend dressed in her best red UGA Game-Day dress, a nice black alligator purse over her shoulder and a nice pair of chic alligator black heels walking into Jacksonville next year (for our Lady readers on here make sure your significant other reads this part). Of course they also make sandals and flops so she can slip the heels off and enjoy the game without the foot discomfort. By the way, I am still looking for cleats...imagine the Dawgs taking the field against the gators in alligator cleats...
Dog Collars: Most of us have man’s best friend. Is there any better way to show your love for your canine family member than to adorn its neck with a collar made from 100% dead alligator??? Order one for your dog today.
Golf Bags: Some of us like to chase little white dimpled balls around a manicured pasture. Yes, we all have faults. But we can atone for our golf fetish if we drop our Pings and Calloways into the skin of a DEAD gator. I would hope Bubba reads this and gets one for the next PGA tour.
Desk Sets: Whether it is a 3 cube, military field desk in a Quonset hut in Afghanistan or a mahogany, custom desk in your private law office; nothing says UGA loyalty and class like a custom desk set accented with alligator skin.
So there you have it Dawg fans, complete use of a gator from the grill to the red carpet. GO DAWGS.
