When I met my husband four years ago, this is how he introduced himself,
“Don’t bother inviting me to a wedding on a Saturday in the fall because I won’t be there!”
And this is exactly what he meant. This statement was actually the source of our first big fight as a married couple when my best friend got married that year, in September, during one of the biggest games of the season, but that’s a story for another day! With that one exception, in the fall we always block off the weekends to watch our beloved Georgia Bulldogs!
John grew up going to the Georgia football games and spent many days in the front yard pretending to play football in Sanford Stadium. We both went to the University of Georgia (now a long time ago), and we got married in the chapel on campus. So for us it is more than football, it is more than a team, it is more than a school. It is a central point from which so much of our lives originated.
So today begins college football season for the Georgia Bulldogs!

Does your family have a past time that is more of a representation of who you are than just something to do for fun?
