It's Football Time!!!

Well, it's that time of year and it certainly felt good to sit down and watch a little college football before heading into work Saturday. The locals of course came away all smiles as both Tech and UGA looked very good against pretty good opponents (on paper). I must say I was pretty jealous as I watch Gil Tyree in all the action up at Sanford Stadium.

My team, Florida State, does not take the field until Monday night up in Clemson. While I enjoyed having the spotlight on my Noles waiting 2 extra days to kick things off sure does test one's patience!

I am lucky enough to be off on Labor Day (thanks for letting me be off Gene & Laura) so the Mrs. and I are going to head to Clemson first thing in the morning to get tailgating! We will be tailgating with 6 or 7 other people. Some I see all the time and others I have not seen in almost a decade! Coordinating that many folks to ensure everything from supplies to food to beverages are all taken care of can be a bit overwhelming, but in the end it will be so worth it. On our menu Monday...

brunswick stew
pigs in a blanket
pasta salad
chips & dip of course
and last but not least... Garnet & Gold Jelly Beans

I am already salivating as I type this! Of course I have to give big props to the Mrs. for getting this all together. She is a life-long Georgia fan, but is making herself a pretty decent Nole if I must say so myself.

So, I hope all my UGA and Tech fans had fun yesterday. I can not wait for my turn tomorrow.

Happy Tailgating,
