This is the week that is circled all year on my calendar. The week when the loyal denizens of the University of Georgia make the trek to our lone outpost in enemy territory and meet the fans of that dark power known as the University of Florida. On Saturday, our teams will be locked in mortal combat beside the St. John's River in Jacksonville. Until then, it is our job to prepare the way by being locked in the throes of borderline-mortal alcohol consumption and partying.
We have another rivalry that is called Clean Old-Fashioned Hate, and that's all well and good. This week, however, isn't clean, and it isn't old-fashioned (though it is a tradition going back to 1904). It's just hate. Dirty, stinkin', drankin', sweatin'... hate.
This is Florida week. THIS IS HATE WEEK. Therefore, I'm letting the following people know that, for Hate Week, 2013, You're On Notice, Dawg!
In no particular order:
What, you expected something from me other than intense, irrational, hatred? I hate Florida with the fire of a thousand suns being fueled by the fire of an additional thousand suns. And this week, so should you.
We might only have approximately 22 healthy scholarship players, but dammit, if there's any chance we can help those players beat Florida's 22 healthy scholarship players by spewing venomous rhetoric southward all week, then we're sure gonna try.
As usual, I'll be posting more hate-fuel as the week progresses. Also as usual, we encourage all y'all to post as much Gator hate as you can muster this week.
