Georgia football’s upstairs neighbors, Tennessee, are at it again.
I woke up this morning when a blinding blue light penetrated my bedroom window. I sat up and collected myself. I could hear some mumblings going on outside, so I made my way to the window to see what was going on. As I pulled back the curtain I could see the parking lot full of police cars. My curiosity got the best of me and I had to find out what was going on. I threw on my Georgia football hoodie and headed out the door.
When I stepped outside I saw policemen chasing multiple men in bright orange shirts and hats. There were others wearing orange sitting on the sidewalk, cuffed and sobbing, with looks of disbelief plastered on their faces. They were mumbling something about “Value Meals” and “bowl ban”, but I couldn’t quite make it out. As I turned to look back towards the building I saw some of the officers coming down the steps to the second floor with a few more cuffed men in orange.
The scene wasn’t roped off so I decided to go check it out. Once I got to the second floor I noticed the floor was littered with McDonald’s bags and Monopoly money. I must have counted at least 44 bags and 21 stacks of fake bills. Once I looked up I saw that everyone on the floor had congregated in front of the fifth door on the right of the walkway.
As I got to the door and walked inside I saw four men standing there with orange football jerseys on. However, the strangest thing happened when I tried to speak to them. As I approached, each one disappeared as if they had jumped into a portal and been whisked away to some other place. It was one of the craziest things I had ever seen. I just couldn’t wrap my head around what was going on.
I had to get out of there and get my thoughts together, so I headed back to my apartment. Once back home I turned on one of my favorite podcasts to see if I could get some clarity on the situation. My guy Lamar Lovelace of The Sports Podium Podcast was speaking on that very subject on the latest episode of the Single Coverage Podcast.
You can listen to that episode here:
This seems like a huge mess for that team that wears orange and its fans. I almost feel bad for those that will have to clean up this mess, almost. Then again, they wear that “Gawd awful orange” and they brought it on themselves. Georgia football fans tried to warn those people in orange that this would be a bad hire that would end badly for the big orange nation, but they ignored the warning and this is their bed they have made. All the folding chairs and all the fingers in the world can’t get them out of this one.
…but at least they had a top ten recruiting class back in April. Right?
