On Saturday, we headed to Athens for the Georgia vs Georgia Tech game. We invited Josh and Tamara Brock to go with us. We had such a great time together!
The guys wanted to leave early - way early. Tamara and I did our best to delay them, but we still got to Athens very early in the day! We took a walk down memory lane, walking through downtown and eating messy hamburgers and yummy fries at The Grill. Then, we headed to the Tate Student Center where The Tom and Chad Show was doing a tailgate. We had fun hanging out with friends at the tailgate with Tom, Chad, and a bunch of other friends from C'ville. It was very cold at the tailgate - and even colder once we got in the stadium!
Josh is a former Dawg himself - he played offensive line for UGA. It was really interesting hear all his insider stories about playing for the Dawgs. When we went into the stadium, Josh asked if we wanted to go on the field before the game. Um, YES WE DO! It was so exciting! We were right there on the field - so close to all the players and coaches while they were warming up and getting ready for the game!
The weather was c.o.l.d. during the game, but all the excitement of the Dawgs vs Jackets (and lots and lots of layered clothing) kept us warm. After the game was over, Tamara and I were ready for sleeping on the drive back. Tamara's in her early second trimester of pregnancy and I'm a mom of a non-sleeping baby, so surely we'd be sleeping while the guys drive home, right? Um, no. Both husbands snored in the backseat while Tamara drove and I tried to keep her awake! I have no idea what I talked to Tamara about - maybe state secrets, maybe lies - but we made it home safe, sound, and almost delirious at 3:00 am!
