It’s Friday, and I am very excited. 1. Because it’s Friday and 2. The Dawgs play for the SEC Championship tomorrow. Am I wearing Red and Black right now? You betcha. Do I have unrealistic optimism about tomorrow’s victory? Of course. All good Georgia fans do.
All good Georgia fans are also aware of the uncanny similarities of this season’s set-up with the championship season of 1980: Alabama was #2 in the SEC and UGA beat Notre Dame for the Big Win. I love stuff like that. Statistic nerds around the world rejoice. It’s enough to give me chills.
In honor of the 1980 season (and with the hopes that 2012 will feel like deja vu)… this week’s Mixtape hosts some of my favorite tunes from the 80s.
Tomorrow I better see all my Dawgs sporting acid washed jeans and rocking the casbah. Maybe if we can make it feel like 1980 we won’t stop believing and we’ll win. BRING ME A HIGHER LOVE, Dawgs. Don’t go losing. Don’t do me like that.
