Georgia Sports

I have good feelings about the state of Georgia and our flagship teams. The Braves won last night, and the Dawgs are going to win tomorrow. I almost went to the Braves game last night, but I didn’t. I think I am going on Monday. But that will involve missing some class, and I need to decide whether it is worth it or not. You just neve know how long the Braves are going to last in October, and it is fun to go while you can. There has been a chill in the air and Turner Field is a lot more fun when it is chilly than when it is 105 degrees.

With regards to the Dawgs, my current hero is Thomas Davis. I love to watch UGA’s defense on the field. In addition, he is a free safety. And I would love to be a free safety. Growing up in a football family is fun, except if you are girl you are inherently left out of things. I always figured that if I had been able to play (I never really considered if I had been a boy, just if I COULD have played football, I would have wanted to be a free safety). On the other side of the ball, I love this quote off of ESPN.Com by Ivan Maisel:
Friday, Oct. 8
Phil Fulmer said this week that he felt as if David Greene and David Pollack had been at Georgia as long as he has been at Tennessee. That brings up this point — Greene has won 36 games in his college career. No. 37 comes Saturday, and the record for wins by a college quarterback is 39, set by Fulmer’s own Peyton Manning.

I would love David Greene to break some records. I read the other records that Greene is about to break the other day but I can’t remember all the numbers, but Greene threw 5 touchdown passes last weekend, which was a school record I believe. People don’t appreciate him like they should in my opinion. At least last week we learned that Shockley is shaping up well himself. I’m telling you, this weekend is going to be wild. I can’t breathe I am so excited.

I don’t actually know anything about any other teams in Georgia, mostly because I don’t care much about Tech, I mean, they are in the ACC. But, GO DAWGS and GO BRAVES!

Most of the time I am pretty comfortable playing Russian roulette with regards to being called on in class when I am unprepared and I hate telling the teacher beforehand that I am unprepared. But every once in a while there are situations when I need to go ahead and pass before class starts. Like today. I have friends coming in town this weekend for the football game and some of them are already here. And we went out last night. And it has been a while since I have had motivation in Trust and Estates. Don’t get me wrong, it is probably my favorite class, but it is easy to follow along in class even when you haven’t read and I am lazy. Oh yeah, and my book is at home. So I’m not even able to wing it today. I am that unprepared (I always bring my book to every class, this is the first class all semester that I haven’t had my book, I love my book. I love all books, and my law books and I spend a lot of time together and I am attached).  I’m having a Peter Gibbons day – I just want to avoid being hassled, that is all I ask. In order to avoid being hassled I had the following conversation with my teacher:

Charlsie: "Professor Love, I am not prepared."

P. Sarajane Love: "And what is your name?"

Charlsie: "Charlsie Paine"

P. Sarajane Love: "Wow, good thing you told me because your number was up." (sort of punches me in the arm)

Charlsie: "Great." (laugh nervously)

There are at least 80 people in this class. This was my first pass of the year. I am regularly unprepared. I am very lucky.
