A Brit intends to visit the states for a week to take in a few college football games with his friends and asks Stewart Mandel to suggest an itinerary for them. Mandel obliges, starting with a trip… to Athens, Georgia.
To truly experience as many different styles and scenes as possible, I think you need to hit three games in a week. Here’s the itinerary I’ve come up with:
• Sat., Sept. 27: Tennessee at Georgia. Visit the new College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, then make the short drive to Athens, where your friends will get a taste of all things SEC football: the sundresses and the khakis, the Redcoats, Uga, the hedges and Todd Gurley running between the tackles.
I’m finding it extremely difficult to tamp down the snark bubbling up inside me. So before I burst, let me just say, Mark from London, I hope you’ll visit the Classic City. Feel free to drop by our tailgate anytime.
