For the first time this season Kristie and I were able to enjoy both the Clemson and University of Georgia football games. Clemson was not on a station where we could watch the game but we enjoyed just hearing the radio broadcast. Ashley and her team were making an appearance during the game and she was shown on the big screen on the scoreboard several times. Go Monk.
We taped and watched the UGA game Saturday. Kristie’s grandmother is celebrating her Eighty-fifth birthday and that called for a party. The whole family gathered along with friends in Toccoa to wish her at least 85 more. We got home well after kick-off so Kris and I watched the game via tape.
The Dogs played their most distant road game in recent memory traveling all the way to Tempe, Arizona to face the Sun Devils. If you follow American college football you already know they are a quality team. But the Bull-Dogs were up to the challenge remaining undefeated this year. It was a great game but I think I enjoyed the segment about Uga’s (Bulldog mascot) travels with the team and how he has a near “rock star” celebrity everywhere he goes.
