We found this extremely interesting.

Nike .... transformed the world of "tennis shoes" and "sneakers"  into a billion dollar industry.

This Fan...is a Fanatic!

This had to be a Georgia fan.  


From Fox Sports:


Thoughts on a Labor Day

It is a beautiful day in the neighborhood...in this small southern college town.  Down the road a bit,  Atlanta was rocking this weekend.   The Chick-fil-A  Kickoff Classic.   Dragon Con.   NASCAR.   The Braves.  Even Georgia Tech had a home game.

Holidays are made for family and fun.  We had a blast!  Some stuff we're following in the sports world:

Have a safe and happy Labor Day!

A Costly Celebration

They say if you live long enough...you're liable to see everything.  Well,  what we saw Saturday night in Clemson, South Carolina...is one for the ages.

The University of Georgia not only lost a football game...but lost their leading receiver.

Some time...some where...a long time ago....Georgia must have upset the college football gods.   This kind of thing just doesn't happen.

Bad karma?  Bad coaching?  Bad common sense?

From the Athens Banner Herald:

Jubilation turns to frustration as UGA's Mitchell tears ACL, out for season

Georgia must not only shake off its season-opening loss but come to grips with the absence of one of its best players for Saturday's game against No. 6 South Carolina and the rest of the season.
