UGA/USC...no the other one.

Alrighty, well, not much to say about this game that hasn't already been said so I'll just recap the day.

8am - Leave Marietta for Columbia.

11:40am - arrive in Columbia and bypass a boyscout group offering $15 parking.

12:15pm - accidentally think I can park in the big grassy parking lot that turns out to be permit parking only (turn truck around).

12:30pm - finally find a parking lot and pay $20 to park, boyscouts previously mentioned in view.

12:40pm - fire up grill, beer, beer, hotdawg, beer, hard liquor, cigar, water, water, water.

3:00pm - follow crowd to stadium.

3:30pm - arrive at seats in time to hear 2001.

3:31pm until 5 minutes left in game - Roast, bake, fry, burn, sweat, stink, want to die, be pissed off.

Last 5 min. of game - Hallelujah SHADE!, bite nails, cheer, be pissed off, bite nails, cheer, leave.


(Lost track of time but time table runs as follows):

Walk back to truck hearing 'Cocks holler obscenities as Dawgs crow and talk trash.

Arrive at truck and down a gallon of water, listen to Dark Side of the Moon as traffic leaves.

Leave, sit in traffic...

Drive in traffic for an hour trying to get to I-20.

Realize I'm low on gas, stop in Aiken, SC for Waffle House and gas...no stations have gas, uh oh.

Drive to next exit and pay $4.39/gallon limit $40 (I use 2 different credit cards to fill up, thank God for good credit.)

11:00pm - Contemplate truck stop advertising cheap diesel and clean showers to wash layer of filth off.

12:30am - arrive home and take a shower, tell wife about my Dante's Inferno-esq trip.

THE END.

Next come pictures, after that, my take on the game.

Well that about sums it up. Perhaps my spin on it was a little more positive. I had a great time aside from baking and fearing the good guys were going to piss it away. Felt a lot better after catching the game replay yesterday. Clear up mistake and penalties, and we dominate that game. SC had >250 total yards, 115 came on UGA penalties.

Yeah, I'm with you. I've watched the first half and so far we look solid defensively, it's just our offense was doing a whole lot of nothin'. Catch some passes and we're cruising 21+ easy. Thank God for Gamecock incompetence.
