The Georgia vs. Florida Cocktail Party

Albert the Alligator and his date
Well folks it is time for the annual game held in Jacksonville, Florida pitting the Georgia Bulldogs against the Florida Gators in what has been famously known as the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.

This year university officials from both schools have asked that sponsors, broadcasters and Jacksonville businesses stop using this moniker to describe the game. They want to downplay this particular aspect of traditional southern good ole' boy atmosphere that pervades this event. I guess if no one calls it that anymore it'll surely cut down on all the drinking. Good thinking guys. I'm sure this will have a huge effect on people's behavior. Maybe y'all could schedule a prayer breakfast instead of the normal pre-game tailgating parties.

Even though the Bulldogs are currently in a deep trough of despair and the Gators are at the top of the SEC East, and have defeated Georgia 14 out of the last 16 meetings, I'm going to go out on a limb and predict an upset by the Dawgs: GA 30 - FL 27.

Don't call your bookie until you consult with the Bagwhan. I'm sure his oracle sees it differently.

Regardless of the outcome it's a one of a kind game, which is as southern and delicious as pecan pie ala mode. YEEEEE-HAAAWWW!!!!

Sweet little UGA

21 - 14 Florida wins. All things considered, that ain't as awful as it coulda been.
