Football Night in Atlanta: October 15, 2011



With it being a bye week and not much else to talk about; well, unless you want to dwell on Life without Marcus Lattimore or maybe we could talk about Mizzou  and other conference realignment topics.  But I thought the downtime would be a good opportunity to let you know about how my Saturday went down.  First, this is the second week in a row that playing rugby has interfered with watching South Carolina play at 12:21 on the SEC Digital Network.

I left my house during the second quarter.  Actually, the last play of the game that I watched live with the interception thrown by Shaw in the end zone.  And boy did that really set the tone for the rest of the day.

So I on my way to the field for rugby.  Yup, rugby.  Which by the way, the championship match for the Rugby World Cup is this weekend on NBC on Sunday at 3 PM.  We had two matches, the B-side vs GA Southern and the A-side played New Orleans.  Did I mention that the Carolina game set the tone?  I checked the score at halftime, Still 7-7?? So my team beat a bunch of college kids, and yes I do feel better about myself after that accomplishment.  And then, I checked the score after the game, 14-12?  WTH? And then the A-side lost to New Orleans, at home.  Bad omen for the Falcons/Saints games, at least the Saints lost to the Bucs this weekend. 

 

This is where things get weird.  Apologies to Dawg Sports, I was unable to make it to the Blind Pig Tavern for the Goat Roast, but don't worry, I ended up at a shady bar in Atlanta with plenty of the less desirable version of UGA fans.  After Clemson finished its coming back against Maryland, I noticed a rowdy bunch of Bulldawgs intently watching the Vanderbilt vs UGA game.  Which was shockingly close.  But just as I walked in, UGA had the 75 yard completion for a touchdown.  That led to utter jubilation in the form of the calling of the dawgs.  "What's that coming down the track?....."  However, much to their chagrin, Vanderbilt completed a long successful drive for a touchdown to bring the score to 33-28 in favor of UGA. 

Then a couple of unsuccessful drives followed-up by the Baccarri Rambo interception sent UGA fans over the edge.

It was all going well for UGA.  They were about to escape Nashville with a win against an overachieving performance by the Dores.  But then this guy showed up:

"Hey Vanderbilt!", he said, "Block that Kick!"  After the special teams blunder, it seemed Vandy was ready to claim a rare UGA scalp, Georgia fans were worried.  But two more incomplete passes later and Vandy's house looked like this:

Georgia fans left, but not before chanting Nerds again.  I don't know, I guess maybe they were just getting warmed-up for calling Tech nerds.  I certainly enjoyed the whole spectacle.

 

So that's how that went down.  Also, in contrast to the UGA calling Georgia Tech fans nerds, I rather enjoy how both sides of the Clemson-Carolina rivalry are referred to as stupid, white trash.  I suppose though, that this concept is not foreign to Auburn and Alabama.
