Really? A boutique posting about college football? What could the two possibly have in common?
Regular blog readers may remember my post from early September about how much I missed being able to go to games this year. Like any situation, one has to figure out how to adapt with what they've been given.
Since I couldn't watch or attend any UGA games in person, I made sure to wear red and black (the school colors) in the store every Saturday. Since I favored those colors in my office career days, I didn't have any problems putting together different outfits to fit the bill. This past Saturday, I went so far as to wear my "G" earrings too!
Early in the season, a woman walked in on a Saturday afternoon wearing a "Dawgs" t-shirt. I first said Hello, then said "Are you a Georgia fan?" and then asked "What is the score?" Since most games started (and sometime ended) while the store was open, I could only occasionally sneak a look at ESPN.com for the score.
I did have a few men ask about a wide-screen TV on Saturday afternoons! I'm sure Comcast would be happy to set me up if I requested it! But that might be pushing my obsession a bit too far!
This is what I miss the most!
