That Subway sign urging McGarity’s departure I posted this morning is already gone.
The sign appeared on the Subway on Prince Ave. in Athens. It read in block letters: “NEW UGA ATHLETIC DIRECTOR WANTED. APPLY HERE. GO DAWGS.”
By Sunday night the first two sentences had been removed. Only “GO DAWGS” remained.
Brandi Lavender, who said she is the manager of the location, said it wasn’t her decision to put the sign up. It was made by an area consultant, who could not be immediately reached for comment.
Lavender said it was her decision to take it down after at least one person, who said he worked at UGA’s athletic department, complained in person about the sign. The person’s identity could not be confirmed, according to Lavender, and a UGA spokesman could not be immediately reached for comment. (The person was not McGarity himself, according to Lavender, who viewed security footage.)
That person is probably the same dude whom McGarity sent out to shop for condoms for Ludacris. But I digress.
Anyway, so much for that whole tolerant “Everybody has a right to say what they want. It’s a free world,” the man was spewing just a few days ago. As we all know, when it comes to Georgia athletics, ain’t nothing free.
