It's Saturday in Athens

It's Saturday in Athens

1 picture, 1,000 emotions.

I came across this picture the other day, and it made me stop and sigh, while yearning for the temperatures to cool down, and the Redcoat Band to warm up.

the perfect Sanford Bridge picture??

Sure, it is just another picture of an empty Sanford Stadium from the historic Sanford Bridge. We have all crossed it, and we have all stopped to admire its majesty and lore. But this particular picture was the perfect anecdote for my late summer blues. With Georgia temperatures in the mid to upper 90's, matching humidity percentages, and no clouds to provide the slightest glimmer of relief, I was able to obtain comfort getting lost between these frames.

After surviving a brutal Georgia August, the gray skies in this picture seem more than welcoming. The fact there are no leaves on the trees is a tell-all sign that the photographer is snuggled in their favorite blue jeans and soft, warm hoodie.

I would like to believe that this picture was taken on a late friday afternoon, sometime in late November, preparing to host Auburn or Georgia Tech the following day, with some sort of championship hopes on the line.

Yeah, that's where I would like to be today. I would like to be be the person snapping that picture, at that very moment.

23 days til' kickoff!!
