I guess I’m a day behind on catching this (in my defense, I haven’t yet reached the age when I scan the obituary section), but here’s something from the Macon Telegraph worth sharing:
J. Philip “Phil” Self, 66, of 7348 Cardigan Circle, NE, Atlanta, Georgia, died Wednesday, October 10, 2012. Services will be private…
Phil was a diehard Georgia Bulldogs fan and was a season tickets holder for decades. It is a shame that the last game he saw was the tragedy last Saturday night.
I hope one thing had nothing to do with the other.
How best to honor a man who had his priorities straight? I think there’s only one thing to do, and that’s dedicate the rest of the season to him. Win one for the Selfer, fellas.
