Today UGA hosted Charleston Southern University. I only went to this game for one reason: I couldn't find anyone to take the tickets. I almost didn't go, but I finally decided that someone had to go to the game to cheer on the Bulldogs. And today, that someone was me.
Despite the final score being the expected blowout (55-9, UGA), I still had a good time. The most fun I have at games are when I'm least expecting to. Life constantly reminds me that keeping my expectations low is the key to being satisfied.
It's worth mentioning that UGA pulled out all the stops in a belated halftime salute to Veterans Day, including visits from Medal of Honor recipient General James Livingston, an assembly of Purple Heart recipients, and "God Bless the U.S.A." singer Lee Greenwood. (Aaron Murray also made a surprise appearance, though I don't think that had anything to do with the day's theme.) Once that show was over, we went home.
(Postscript: Mom spent most of the ride to and from Athens arguing with Sirius XM customer service about a malfunction of the Sirius Traffic app. Google arrived to save the day just before she lost her temper. Thanks Google!)
