Is that not the cutest tagline ever for the annual Spring Classic meeting of Southern rivals Georgia Tech and University of Georgia?!?!
Like last year, we scooted into town for a convivial tailgate hosted by a few college friends aka the brains behind Hunter Technical Resources (for those of you job hunting in the ATL.) While the adults gathered round the bbq and beer, the 8 and unders dominated both the corn hole boards and the ladder golf. It was probably the first time ever that tailgating with the littles has been just plain fun for all involved.
Inside the stadium, we scored FRONT ROW seats directly in front of the pitcher’s mound and right next to the Tech dugout (Honey was just a tish worried about having me in such close proximity to all those tight white pants.) The boys (all three of them) were over the moon. I thought Cookie might have swooned when Jake Davies, who just so happens to have been named ACC Player of the Week, waved at him and said hello. Of course, Honey – a Tech ball playing alumnus himself – was grinning like the cheshire cat as he explained the intricacies of a college ball game to our little coach pitch player.
And, at the end of the night, Tech beat the mutts 4-3! Down with the red and black…up with the white and gold!
