Time to let the machine run itself
Let's all have a great season; we have had a lot of them over the years at UGASports. Enjoy the game we love, argue and fuss, but never lose sight of the fact that it is all in good fun and we should enjoy it as yet another bonus of living in this great land.
We have soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, civilians, and many others who have given up their seat to go off and do things nobody wants to, not even them.
That extra seat at the bar, seat on the plane to the game, two minutes earlier your buzzer lets you know your table is ready; think of them.
I know I will. I do every day, all day, and every night.
You do not have to be a combat veteran to understand this. Heck, you don't need to be a veteran at all. Do you really need to feel the shark's teeth to convince you that it would really really hurt?
While you are cheering on the Bulldogs this fall, remember that Red and Black is one thing, but Red, White, and Blue is another, and somewhere someone has that Star Spangled Banner subdued in OD green on their shoulder wishing they could see the game too.
I will leave you with that ......
