Four Grizzardisms. Only one will be the winner.

In the past few weeks, you’ve voted on some of the best Lewis Grizzard quotes by category.

It’s been a fun time of laughing and fondly reflecting a voice of the South and the Bulldogs that’s badly missed.

I don’t know how many times in the past few years that I, and I am sure many of you, would have loved to hear Lewis weigh in on all that’s gone in the news, Georgia athletics...I mean can imagine his comments on President Adams, for starters?

Without further delay - here are the finalists. Vote now!
