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