Bubba's appearance came in the final segment of the show called, "The Berg Challenge" and he appeared under the name "Bluto."
If you saw it, Bubba put forth a valiant effort, but came up short against his opponent, "The Berg." The Berg was able to get a head start on Bubba because he was extremely skilled at cornhole, the challenge's first event.
No harsh feelings though, The Berg was a cool dude (a champion among champions, if you will) and he looked like he was still drunk from the night before.
Unfortunately for Streit, he didn't realy end up appearing the show. However, several of us appear behind Bubba (and received close ups of our horrific faces), and we looked like complete idiots. Awesome.
Bubba, however, appeared downright dignified in his bowtie and represented the Bulldawg Nation well.
still a champion
I thought that the show was pretty good overall. It captured the tailgting experience fairly well, at least as best anyone could in a 30 minute show. Of course, some fans with a hint of douchebaggery made it on, but so did some pretty awesome fans as well.
I also like how the show the profiled downtown Athens at night. That's definitely unique among any show that has tried to profile the college gameday experience.
If we can get the video, we'll put it up on the blog.
At the end of the season, they're going to have a vote for the best tailgating among the campuses they profiled. Hopefully we'll be able to as good of a job campaigning for that as we did for our buddy Alex over at Junkyard Blawg.
