Helping Our Northern Brethren Get a Handle on Our References

4

Brian Cook finds "delightfully impenetrable" Paul Westerdawg's hilarious "LOOK AT THE WEEDEATERS FALLING FROM THE SKY!" reference, so I thought I'd do what I could to help anyone else who didn't get the reference. (In Brian's defense, if you didn't grow up listening to Larry Munson, I don't suppose there's any reason why that should make sense.) In 1982, Georgia beat Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium to capture a third straight SEC championship. In those days, the SEC champion automatically went to the Sugar Bowl. After the Bulldogs stopped the Tigers on fourth down to ensure a return trip to New Orleans, Larry Munson declared, "Look at the sugar falling from the sky!" In 1991, Georgia went to the Independence Bowl, which then was (infamously) sponsored by Poulan Weedeater. This pairing of the postseason game with its sponsor led to much mockery, so we in Bulldog Nation still think of it as the Poulan Weedeater Independence Bowl. Since Georgia may be going back to the Independence Bowl this year, Paul reworked the Munson line to substitute Weedeaters for sugar. This has been a public service announcement. Go 'Dawgs!
