I have grown up attending the opening game of at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. It's an amazing event full of promise of the season, welcome "seasonal" friends that you will welcome weekly for the next 12 weeks with chicken, brownies, stories and of course a cocktail or two. I now am a mom... so I take my two daughters (whom I've brainwashed masterfully) into the SWAMP to cheer on the Gators and more importantly to teach my 9 year old the finer points of football. I told her that it's a much more interesting conversation on football weekends with the boys than the girls who don't know what's going on!
So here's my nod to tradition, I hope you all appreciate yours and have the opportunity to pass it on.
