I have to say that I have never really liked UGA to begin with. Let’s start at the beginning. I grew up in Georgia – most of the people I went to high school with went to UGA. And in case, you’re new around these parts, I was not a super fan of high school. Hence my decision to not go to UGA. While at Auburn, UGA fans were never super pleasant to us, and therefore the dislike of most of my high school classmates translated into a full dislike of that school.
Plus, their barking really annoys me.
So, this Friday, B and I decided to give Athens a shot. We drove there after work, drove downtown, decided that umm, nope, we are not 23 anymore and will not be hanging out any of those crowded ass bars downtown. So what did we do? Went to the hotel, changed into our PJs, and watched the Auburn basketball game — which holla, we won.
The next day, we got up semi early to go and get Chick-fil-a, our game day tradition.
Just as an FYI, we are getting really sick of that tradition, and are thinking of changing it up. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
After breakfast, we decided to head downtown to soak up some of the game day atmosphere. And by game day atmosphere, I mean dealing with the mean UGA fans — pretty much all day we heard about how terrible we are, etc. It was like Georgia was trying to be Louisiana or something.
We did happen to run into this sweet little UGA bulldog named Lucy — she loved all the attention she got!!
We walked around trying to find this gate thing that all the paintings had on them. We were really excited when we finally found it!
Then after this, we walked around some more, decided it was finally time to eat. We ended up at this place called Trapeeze, or something close to it. I didn’t get many pictures of the food, because it honestly wasn’t the best. They were better known for their beer selection, so here ya go.
I honestly didn’t get any pictures at the game — and I’m kind of glad I didn’t. Auburn got their behinds handed to them, and we left somewhere toward the end of the third quarter. Luckily for us, we were in the Auburn section, so leaving wasn’t that big of a deal.
On the way back to the car, I got “Fuck you War Eagle,” screamed in my face.
So yes, Athens, I still dislike you and your school. And based on some of the other experiences I heard about from other Auburn fans, they were treated badly as well.
Based on my past two experiences at away games, I’ve decided to just stick to being at the Plains.
War Damn Eagle always.
