I pulled this off of a friend’s facebook feed (with permission) a couple of weeks ago. She has a daughter who just started her freshman year at the University of Georgia.
Guy at work this morning: Your daughter at UGA must be so excited about tomorrow!
Me: Oh. What?
Guy: The game!
Me: (mentally running through a list of sports in attempt to figure out which one we’re talking about, quickly setting on football): Oh. Right. The game!
Guy: What a game to start her college career with! I hope she doesn’t start thinking they are all going to be like that one!
Me (trying to act like I am in the know on these things): oh, yeah. I know. That would be bad.
Guy: Hopefully they don’t [random football words] tomorrow like [other football team I can’t remember name of] did last night.
Me: I know. That would not be good! That would be very bad.
Guy: Oh man, I wish I was going! I want to hear all about how she likes it!
Me: Right. Um, go Dawgs!
So, this is why you need Flip the Field. If she followed us, just a bit, she would have known that UGA was playing one of the only ‘real’ football season openers. They were playing against one of their biggest rivals, Clemson, in a big game with both teams ranked in the top 25 pre-season poll.
She also would have known that the Thursday game between Texas A&M and South Carolina ended with the Aggies dominating the Gamecocks who were left to scratch, hunt and peck for just a few points here and there.
But, let it be said, I think she did a marvelous job of at least pretending to know and pretending to care.
Subscribe to Flip the Field and follow us on Facebook AND Twitter! Otherwise, be at their mercy. Best of luck my friends!
