College Football - and the funniest thing I ever saw

Of course the entire "Bulldog Nation" is all excited about starting this footbal season ranked as #1, myself included.  However, UGA football also brings backs memories for me of the funniest thing I ever saw.

My one year in Athens was 1977-78.  I guess one year was all that the city of  Athens and UGA could take of me :-).  Anyway, the football games were always a great experience and a lot of fun.

Back in those days the stadium was quite different.  Both ends of the stadium were open.  On one open end of the stadium was "the tracks". This was, as you can imagine, a railroad track that passed right outside the stadium.  Students and fans would gather on the tracks to watch the games for free.  The railroad had to reschedule the trains for safety reasons.

On the other end of the stadium was "The bridge".  This was a bridge that crossed campus and students and fans would also gather to watch the games for free.

It was the Kentucky game in the fall of '77 and Prince Charles was coming to see a game of american college football.  Yes - that Prince Charles, future King of England.

Prince Charles

At halftime Prince Charles went down on the field to greet the band, drill team, etc.....   and then the funny moment .....
some of the crazies on the bridge unfurled a HUGE banner that read:

Prince Charles
Does it DAWG Style

It was just too funny!

Go Dawgs!

If you know about an interesting person, place, or business in our area, please let me know!  I would love to give them a mention here.

Hi Bob,

All I can say is "Go Gators", I will be watching the Florida Georgia football game.  Too bad, I won't be attending, but I might have to enter Maine to see the game.  Grrrrr...

Ha, that was probably the last college football game that PC attended.  Too funny.  Go Vols!

Ann_Marie and Erik: Thanks for the comments. Gators and Vols are both great teams.  I hope they both have really good seasons. I only wish one loss on each of them :-).  SEC football is the best!
