What a fantastic year it has been in the world of college football. University of Florida dominated the scene again, only to be shamed by an unranked team that has always been able to dial it’s number. It’s great to be a Florida Gator.
Earlier this year we went to Atlanta to watch the Gators take on University of Alabama. I have to admit that I have never seen that many polite and courteous people in one place. They dressed as if they were going to a formal dinner. Hats, jackets, all very tasteful. Not a single Nascar-looking fan among them all.
Florida fans… well, I’m one of the more reserved and respectful UF Alums. That ought to tell you something! When Florida fans get off the bus it looks like the insane asylum just had a kegger. God I love my people!
Katie did feel bad about how nice all the Alabama women looked. I tried to comfort her, it’s hard to find a tasteful piece of clothing in blue and orange. No matter how nice it is, you come off looking like a lunatic.
So here is one to the Bama fans. Very classy.
Now it’s on to Florida to defend the South. Tickets in hand for the game on Thursday and we are heading to Miami baby! Tim Tebow jersey and all. Bring out the crazies! Just to give you an idea of how demented UF folks are, here are some Tim Tebowisms. Enjoy:
