What’s That Coming Down the Track…

I’ve written before about how odd it is to live in one place and root for sports teams from another place. Especially when that place is nearly 3,000 miles away and in a different time zone. No matter how much I enjoy living in San Diego, and I enjoy it quite a bit, I will never not be a fan of the Braves, Falcons, Hawks and of course, Bulldogs. Today, I got to do something I’ve been doing for the past six years, something that makes me feel more connected to the team I love the most.

This morning my husband and I watched University of Georgia football with fellow Georgia alumni and supporters. So much fun. I love being with this group of people on Saturdays in the fall. We don’t usually see each other after the first week of December or before the first week in September, but in between, we are family. And we bark. And most of us have Southern accents. And we love UGA. And the majority of us also love the Falcons, and the Braves. All of which is nice when you live nearly 3,000 miles away from those teams–and are a passionate sports fan.

All of these people know the words to Glory, Glory. Well, not sure about the guy on the far right, he’s from Oklahoma, but everyone else, yes.

I have no idea what libation was in this glass, but for the purpose of this post, I am saying it’s Long Island Ice Tea.

Young, we start them young. Of course my kids will probably wind up at USC (west) but that doesn’t mean this girl will.

Yes, fall is finally here. And even though the weather in beautiful San Diego rarely acknowledges seasonal changes, I still do. And today I got to hunker down with people who know what that means. Life is good.

Go Dawgs!

  1. Though I love my alma mater (UCSB), this post makes me wish I had attended a college with a football team! I love that you were able to watch the game and bark with fellow Dawgs. I will not cheer for the Braves or the Falcons though. No matter how much I love you.
