“Things that the Georgia fans aren’t used to experiencing.”

This year’s TaxSlayer Bowl pitch:  Come for the football game.  Stay for the amenities!

Unlike the Georgia-Florida game when the stadium seats 84,000, the set-up in the stadium will be like it is for a Jacksonville Jaguars game. That means pool decks on the upper deck north end zone will be operational, party cabanas will be used and alcohol will be served in the stadium.

Probably not enough, though.

    Don’t think that will ever happen in the classic city.

    A repeat trip to Charlotte or sending UGA back to the scene of the face plant game…two things I did not think the SEC would do. Fuck’em.

  3. Nothing gets me more excited than the thought of floating in a pool in early January. 🙂

      Apparently they don’t drain the pools for the Cocktail game, as UGA went diving with Coach Richt the last two years, during the game.

      • It is going to be 70 degrees and it is heated but from the looks of the shots at the Falcons game it looks like the pool had mostly kids in it …translates as high urine content.
        They are marketing alcohol at a Georgia game. Damn, I don’t think I’ve ever had that before . I thought about bringing booze to watch Jimmy,”the Greek ” Poulus run but when I found it it was against the rules to bring alcohol in Sanford Stadium I said rules are rules and didn’t do it. Ditto for the approx. 40 Ga/Fl games I’ve attended . (can’t find my sarcasm key)
        From the comments on this blog it looks like this game will be attended like an ACC championship game in J’ville…..pitiful.

          We had drinks at the UGA-BSU game – at the Dome. Probably will again against UNC. And guaranteed 72 degree weather. No pool though.

    With these two uninspiring offenses, maybe they should give the alcohol away.

    It’s hard to muster up any enthusiasm for this game whatsoever. Only thing I got is the opportunity to finish with a better record than the Gators. Yes, moral victories are all that’s left for this team….

    Alcohol will be served? How quaint.

    No desire to even watch this game live on TV. And I have a better idea. How about I just DVR the game and go watch Star Wars again? Yeah, sounds like a much better use of 2.5 hours. (No, I am am not a Tech fan.)

    They really should just be brutally honest with the pitch: “yes UGA fans, we’ve seen your offense. That’s why we’re offering booze.” (And they could say the same about PennSt’s offense, from the comments I’ve seen.)

    My brother and I attended Super Bowl 39 in Jax. They ran out if beer just before halftime. Maybe they assumed folks from Boston and Philly didn’t drink a lot of beer. Maybe that’s why they will never host another Super Bowl.

    • Ha, I didn’t go to the game, but I was living in Jax at the time. They definitely bit off more than they could chew with that one. I mean, it was kind of cool as a resident to go down and be part of the experience, and using the cruise ships was a neat idea. But I just remember thinking to myself that this would probably be the only time the Super Bowl would ever be there.

    Sat in that stink pit two years ago and every seat in the house felt like an icy pool of water as it rained the whole dang game with temps in the 40’s … and third and Grantham was immortalized in the anus of UGA sports history that day!

    Re Booze and Bowls, every one I have ever been to offered BEER…I don’t really consider that booze myself. 🙂

  15. 4 of my buddies and I went to the 76 Cotton Bowl after the 75 season. There was no booze sold at the game so we all snuck in a pint of bourbon. We were drinking bourbon and coke, having a great time when at halftime they ran out of coke! The second half we had to mix the bourbon with Dr Pepper. To make things worse Ark scored 21 unanswered points in the 4th qtr to whip our ass. I blame the whole thing on us having to mix Jack with Dr Pepper.

    I went to the Clemson-Virginia Tech Gator Bowl to see Vick’s last game. The best car art ever read “I’d rather have a big Vick than a little Woody (Danzler)!
