On the Road in the Fall

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything other than the weekly 80’s video with BulldawgJosh. We’ve had plenty of time to think about the 2008 season and I’ve been able to look back on many of our memories fondly:

Yes, these guys always look this Good.

Trip to New Orleans and Baton Rouge… Awesome

Trip to Auburn… Awesome

Trip to Saint Simmons… Awesome, Following Trip to Jacksonville…Not Awesome

Trip to Tempe and Vegas… Awesome

Trip to BFR's Lake House and Columbia… Awesome

Anyways, spring is always an anxious time of year for the die hard SEC fan and little steps must be taken to ensure you get your football fix. National Signing Day passed an February and yesterday, the Bubba ‘N Earl team made our hotel reservations for the Cocktail Party, Wednesday to Sunday on St. Simons Island, and this event has given me enough excitement to last to G-Day.

We are very creative with our spare time at the Beach.

Yes, I will be in Stillwater come September and Nashville come early October, but nothing marks my fall like a great trip to the beach with great friends. Two days of golf and an afternoon on the beach at North Breakers is all I need to build into a frenzy before going to Jacksonville on the charter bus Saturday.

BulldawgJosh is always looking for some Gator Hate!

Was last year a disappointment? In many ways it was but we had an unforgettable time along the way. We met some incredible traveling Dawg fans last year and will no doubt have a great time meeting up with them on the road this year. We look forward to entertaining our new Kentucky friends in Athens between the hedges and another fall where it’s always great to be a Georgia Bulldog.

Georgia Baseball moves to 12-0 and perhaps #1 ranking

The Dawgs handled Quinnipiac this weekend, winning 7-0, 19-6, and 7-2, to move their record for the 2009 season to 12-0. Friday night's game was highlighted by Trevor Holder's 7 innings of hitless ball. Saturday's game saw the bats come alive and put a hurting on the visiting team. The blowout victory including this bowb from Rich Poythress:

Sunday saw the Dawgs finish off the sweep with a workman like victory. Already ranked #2 in the Collegiate American poll coming into the weekend, the Dawgs appear to be poised to take over #1 this week as LSU lost its weekend series. The Dawgs have two more throw away games this week against LeMoyne before the real season begins this weekend against Alabama.

The 2008 Georgia team was simply amazing, with All-American Gordon Beckham leading the way to a national runner-up, but the 2009 team may be that much better. This is by far the most complete Georgia team I have seen. The pitching is fantastic and the hitting is solid throug out. The best part is, the team is filled with freshman who will be with the team for a few more years. I would be very surprised if the Dawgs are not back in Ohama come the end of this season.
