Met royalty on Saturday...
Once in a lifetime jam on Saturday!!! We went to Athens with Thorn to go to the GDay game. Such a rad day.
Got to Athens and ended up going to Barberitos on the east side to grab lunch. As im giving this dude my order he says "hey man, totally diggin your shirt" - I told him thanks and then told him black beans please. He then went on to ask where i got it and I told him I designed them for Ween's last trip through Athens. He was pumped and wanted one - so I asked him for his email address and this rad hippy went on to say the following: "ok you ready.... its: luv-to-panic@_______.___" Thorn and I had to do all we could to not laugh. Especially after he essentially tried to convince me to trade him one of those shirts for one of his Widespread shirts. I'm still contemplating this!
Anyways the game was fun, weather was great, and my cokes were spilling all over the place. This is really fuckin dumb but over the last week I have flat out dropped 4 different drinks. One in publix was a large diet coke after someone put the wrong sized fuckin' tops in the large container and when i went to grab it the fuckin glass slipped through my hands and went everywhere. that same thing happened at work, QT, and at Sanford staidum this week. Mutherfuckin BUTTERFANGAZ!!! So saturday I dropped the shit and it splashed all over these two really well done up people in front of me. Laura, Thorn and Griggs were laughing their asses off at me as I dashed up the isle to get some napkins. They ended up being fine, but the girl (who was kinda brown due to about 40 trips too many to the tanning salon) was still pissy, and rightfully so.
After the game we heard from Zieg that the bookstore was having a clearance sale on a lot of their clothes so we wanted to check it out. We filed down to field level and then walked back towards Tate to hit those stairs and walk up to the bookstore. Well we walk out and shitfire there was UGA chillin in his crate in the UGA VII suv. Sonny Sadler was standing there and said "we dont normally do this but if peopel want to get some pictures with UGA make a line." We did and got one of the first pictures with the dude, who was tired as SHIT! The reason the pic is at a funny angle is because Thorn got blocked out by this fat ass security guard who he couldnt get around. Right after he snapped it, I took Thorn's photo which shows Thorn with arm around UGA! Gave the dude one final pat, and then headed towards the bookstore. Had some drama with my phone saying there was no memory left, but got the picture emailed ok. It was funny b/c right as we were leaving the car I ended up leaving my camera b/c I didnt want to have to lug it around everywhere after I had to keep tabs on it all day Monday at the Masters. Wish i would have had it now so i could have gotten a higher quality pic, but whatever. The experience itself was just fucking awesome! I love that big dude!
Will never forget the day we met the most famous dog on the earf!
