Sweet little Hawaii.

Yes, it’s 2:35am and I’m blogging. Listen, when the Georgia Bulldogs play like that, I have a hard time going to sleep right afterwards. Give a girl a break. That was a long game.

And a glorious one. Though I will tell you, as my girl BooMama said, I felt so sorry for Hawaii all night long. THE STORIES that the commentators told were ridiculous. Player’s mom dying, criminal turned Christian football star, “family” feeling amongst the team, the traditional Hawaiian dance, all of it was too much for my emotions.

It’s like they said, “Yeah, Georgia, you may win the game, but we’re going to make you feel REALLY BAD for doing it. Mean ole dawgs. Leave sweet Hawaii alone.”

Except that one Hawaii player that kept taking his helmet off. I liked beating him.

And let me tell you what really chaps my hide. Still, right now on ESPN.com, the main photo story from today is stupid USC. I think USC and ESPN are dating. Or someone at USC has some good dirt on someone at ESPN. It’s either a romantic relationship or plain ole blackmail. There is no other explanation.

Hey ESPN, 41 to 10. In a BCS game. That’s a serious spanking. Can we get a headline bigger than size 4 font?

**edit: as of 1:05pm, UGA has the cover shot on ESPN.com. I knew my blog was powerful and influential, but this is quite surprising. 🙂 **

**edit: as of 4:02pm, it’s gone. That’s okay. We shined for a moment.**

I have a longstanding issue with ESPN’s treatment of UGA going back to 2002, so you really don’t want to get me started. And Lou Holtz, will you ever like us? I understand, you came from Carolina, but let’s be serious. You’re just being a jerk. You want to know a secret? We don’t like you either.

Here’s my favorite moment of the night. I love our boys.Once more, it’s great to be a Georgia Bulldog.

National Champs next year? Don’t be surprised. We’re good. Real good.

    Great shot of Coach Martinez! I loved that part…I almost cried.

    I didn’t like the guy that kept taking his helmet off either- I think he maybe was recruited from a prison.

    We felt bad at the game too….especially since not a single Hawaii fan left early. It was truly unbelievable. Daniel said “well, they traveled 4000 miles to be here, they may never be here again, it’s like mid-afternoon Hawaii time (1am eastern time)and it’s way too cold outside for them. I like to think they are just that faithful.
