go gators!

Today is about loyalty.

I'm not into college football. Heck, when I was in college our football team was nothing to write home about (and we won't talk about that time when I actually stepped in as a cheerleader, or when I dated the captain of the football team!). Those days of 76-0 losses sort of says it all.

But I have a friend who is a serious, no, make that Serious Florida Gators fan. She didn't attend the University of Florida, but she's a Sunshine State native and she can root for whomever she chooses. She chooses the Gators.

And because she is my friend and I don't really care about football, I have signed on to root with her when she gets excited about their games, their wins, and their very existence. I attend Gator parties. I have a Gator t-shirt, and today against rival University of Tennessee I will cheer the Gators on. I actually know who Tim Tebow is, and when it comes to basketball season where the team is a wee bit smaller than the 100 or so that put on football jerseys, I actually learn their names. A freak of nature, what can I say...

Today we're heading to MJ's for tailgaiting and football. It's all about relationship anyway, though I will watch the game. And eat tailgate food. Which reminds me, it's time to put the chicken wings in the oven.

Have a great day. No matter who you root for!

I've heard it said that today will be a "life lesson" for Lane Kiffin. Oh, we'll watch, but I've never liked the Gators, esp. when Spurrier was there! Have fun at the party!!!

This Florida resident is not a Gator fan, but I'm a Tebow fan. Such a very nice man, he testified at our Fellowship of Christian Athletes banquet a few years ago. It gave me goosebumps.
