Dawgs, Hokies, and Spreadheads

My Brother-in-law prides himself on his ticket-scalping abilities. He met his match last night. My Dad drove up from near Macon to go to the Chick-fil-A Bowl at the Georgia Dome. I agreed to attend also.

We decided to go by Marta and went to the Inman Park station. Dad was a little thrown off by the new Breeze Card machines. I had planned on using exact change, so as to avoid the deluge of coinage that appears when one pays for their MARTA fare with cash. Dad stuck in a $20 before I could say squat, and out poured 17$ worth of dollar coins in exchange. Dad grabbed the handful of Liberties and Sacagaweas and held them out to me and said, “Are these real?”

We boarded MARTA (and I was amazed at Dad’s ability to take in the fact that the Breeze card is a piece of paper that you can tap against the booth and move on – way to go, Daddy!) and headed to the CNN center. I proceeded to procure 20 oz. beers. 2 of them. Both for me. Brother-in-law and Father attempted to find tickets to no avail. It appears that there are a lot of Dawg and Hokie fans that actually showed up for the game.

We never did find tickets, but I took fun pictures of football fans and Widespread Panic fans. There was a weird mix of Panicheads and football fans at CNN center. The bathroom line was awesome. Highly enjoyable people watching. See photo: Two highly agreeable attendees agreed to me taking their pictures. One was heading to Philips Arena, one to Georgia Dome. Both intoxicated or otherwise.

Dad and I ended up watching the 2nd half of the game at Six Feet Under. I had the buffalo Oysters. Dad had the fish stew. Yummy.

Dawgs prevailed.

    the only way this image could be funnier is if the dawg fans has played the spreadheads in an impropmtu game of tackle football. THAT would have been one for the ages….
