Publix: Where stealing is a pleasure.
Watching Colonel Turkeyneck
take a 20 point lead into halftime and come out and eat the first thirteen minutes of the second half on a single drive is one of the great sadistic joys in college football.
edit: that drive ends in a field goal, just to make your life harder.
Had a UGa friend call me at halftime in 2008 to talk smack. She hasn't called during a game since.This was a surreal moment for me.
Sat with friends in Lower West and had some good-natured FSU folks sitting in front of us.
I had believed all that week that...somehow someway...we were DUE for a win vs FSU, and this was going to be our chance.
When FSU got 1st & Goal from the 6, one of the FSU fans turns around to me to brag and says, "Well, it was fun while it lasted, but this is where it ends."
I responded..."You are correct."
2 plays later...it was like slow-motion seeing the ball arc skyward after Taylor delivered the hit.
FSU fan turns around again with a memorable look of total disbelief.
It was sublime !!
