As most of y'all are surely aware SEC Media Days kicked into high gear yesterday. Seriously, my day at work was shot from 1pm onward. I even told my CEO that my agenda was wrecked because i was intermittently looking in on all the action. His reply: "What's the SEC?" I damn near fainted, then had to remind myself he's British. But yeah, we're totally indoctrinating him into the glory that is an SEC football game this season. You can't live in the South and not experience it at least once. Afterall, Prince Charles attended a UGA game and so should Henry (boss). Maybe this morning i should start the education process by letting him watch the delicious insanity that is Media Days. Or maybe i should just start from the beginning and let Andy Griffith explain the game of football...
Brilliant, right? I've probably heard that bit a thousand times and i still split my side from laughing so hard. I can't put my finger on just one thing about this game that has us all so obsessed, so to outsiders i know we look crazy. All i do know is that from the time i was born, next to God and my family, Georgia football in all it's storied history, tradition, and fanfare has captivated my attention and passion. Most fans of other SEC teams will tell you something similar. It's just a way of life down South and it's fabulous!
Speaking of SEC fabulosity, i'll leave you with this last piece of football goodness. In case you missed it yesterday, ESPN's 30 for 30 series is creating 4 one-hour documentaries on the Southeastern Conference starting, of course, with the legendary athletic beast that is Herschel Walker. Mark your calenders, it airs September 7th, 8pm est on ESPNU. According to the article, which you should seriously read, this piece isn't just about Herschel's prowess on the gridiron and appeals to every fan of sports. Check out this clip:
