There's an old tradition in my family from long before I was born.  It often draws us together, and we've had many hours of fun as a result of it. 

Sometimes we take it too seriously...and sometimes we don't...

It's Georgia Bulldogs football.  I love how it pulls complete strangers together in our state, as well as in other parts of the world.  I currently work in St. Louis, Missouri, but part of the reason my boss hired me was because I was a Dawgs fan.  (Seriously.)  I've had intense conversations on game day with complete strangers in the grocery line, where we debated the Dawgs' chances, or celebrated a victory. 

My sister married a GA Tech guy, but he usually knows not to talk trash about the Dawgs, so we forgave her for it. 

Every self-respecting little girl in Georgia has a picture of herself in a cheerleader outfit with a big black G on the front...

And there's no day in the year better than opening day.

Around here, we bleed red and black.  It's a beautiful thing.

Hey, now, in all fairness, I was dating Tom WAY before we went to college! And I mean, I went to UGA for four years and graduated there. No one can doubt my love of my dawgs! haha

Although, I did notice you didn't mention our "black sheep"- brother Jordan and sis-in-law Sarah who both went to Tech! haha
