October 20-21, 2006 - Weekend in Athens
Mo and Garry meet at the hotel before Jill and I get there to introduce them.
By the time we get to dinner, they're such fast friends, our waitress thinks they're a couple.
Pretty soon, Mo's changing into a shirt Garry got for having such a large bar tab at the last place...
Cooler in the t-shirt, Mo dances with Jill on the platform along the wall at the Loft (formerly Armadillo, formerly Lowery's).
Garry dances with Mo - as I can no longer hold the camera straight (sorry, Jill's eyes).
Garry sings along... to what - I have no idea.
2:30am local - Garry drunken dials home.
We wake up, start drinking (with a traveling bag o' cosmopolitans), and head to the Dawg Walk.
What a beautiful day!
The flags always start the procession.
Hairy Dawg makes his way through the crowd.
The unmistakable carrot top of Joe Cox.
Nice gathering - especially for the Mississippi State game.
Loren Smith is on the radio under the bridge.
Uga VI looks a little tired of pictures.
That's until Mo and Jill come by.
Uga licks Jill's elbow.
(I wonder if she spilled a little cosmo on her arm...)
The ladies want their picture taken with some freaks...
Just before kickoff, we head away from the bridge to go get a refill..
Halftime. (Dawgs up 21-7.)
The cemetary with a view - just outside Sanford Stadium.
Final score. Dawgs 27, Dogs 24.
From the stadium to our normal tailgating spot to visit Chris and Lee at the SPACenter. Then for a nap.
We close down Utage for dinner, then off to the Georgia Theater for a show and to the 40-watt for another.
We close down 283, then wash down some late burgers and griller cheeses with chocolate malts at the Grill.
What a weekend. It'll take a while to recover - but TOTALLY worth it!
