Fair Weather Fans and Georgia Football

Bulldog Nation Should Never Lose Faith in the Georgia Bulldogs
Georgia football makes fall Saturdays in Athens come alive with throngs of people wearing red and black while shouting “Go Dawgs” at the top of their lungs. The passion for college football in Dixie is undeniable, at least until Georgia loses a game or three. Disappointment when the Bulldogs come up short is only natural, but to give up on a season or the team is a cardinal sin I will never commit.

Somebody made this poor child watch our last two games against South Carolina.

College Football Season is Short and Sweet
One of the reasons I love college football so much is because every college football Saturday is crucial in shaping the season. I would rather have an arm lopped off than to miss a UGA football game. Conversely, if one were to miss the tenth Braves game of the year, who cares? You have over 140 more opportunities to enjoy America’s pastime.

The Atlanta Braves Spoiled Fans Who in the ’90s
At this point I must admit that I am a fair weather baseball fan. My only defense (and I do not claim it to be a good one) is that the Atlanta Braves’ streak of 14 consecutive division titles started in 1991 and lasted through my freshman year of college. Seeing Atlanta win the NL East so many times in my childhood spoiled me. However, following the horrible infield fly call that ended the Braves’ season in 2012 and adding both Justin and B.J. Upton to the roster, I am excited about the possibilities for 2013. Early fair weather forecast for the Braves: Sunny, with a 75% chance of a National League pennant this fall.



I’m a Georgia Bulldog Football Fan For Life
I could never jump on and off of the bandwagon as it relates to my beloved Georgia Bulldogs. When the Dawgs lost to Colorado in 2010 by a final score of 29-27 thereby extending their losing streak to four games I was disgusted. Still, I was in front of the television the very next Saturday irrationally yelling in support of Georgia football.

Just because I find fair weather Georgia football fandom appalling does not make me a better fan than anyone else who roots on the Bulldogs. My devotion means it will be much more significant for me when the Bulldogs finally do break through and win a national championship (preferably several) in my lifetime. Georgia winning a national championship has been discussed frequently on this blog because it is something that we have always wanted to see and I will be a devoted Dawg fan for as long as I live.
