An alert reader discovered a portrait of a Young Coach As Religious Figure at World Famous in Athens. Thought I’d share.
“Saint Kirby”? Man, that Notre Dame win must have been bigger than I thought.
Have at it in the comments.

At first I was trying to figure out why Wally Butts had an icon. But hey, apparently that’s Kirby.
That’s getting a little carried away.
The photo, not the Senator.
The painting, not the Senator. Well y’all know what I mean.
As a frequent World Famous patron, I’m certain there’s a little irony involved.
This. The World Famous is a cool place (best cocktails in Athens, IMO), but it definitely has a big hipster vibe, so I’m pretty confident in saying there is more than a little irony involved.
Wayyyyyy too early.
If we beat Miss State I’ll be ready to Canonize him, but not just yet.
Otherwise you’ll “cannonize” him.
What a work of art.
Really captures the way he looks like he’s 56. 😂
But someday, everything is gonna be different
When I paint that masterpiece.
Only a matter of time before another one shows up at Sister Louisa’s Church, perhaps with Mel Tucker and Jim Chaney as cherubs.
That looks like Kirby and Phil Fulmer’s love child.
And that’s why you never see Kirby Smart and Beau Bridges in the same room at the same time.

“Saint” was an epithet mocking our previous coach. How times change.
If the hipsters (ironically) start worshiping football, who will be left to work on Saturdays?
Great comment +1
Hipsters. People who try to cover up the fact that they’re really just dorks with obnoxious personalities by pretending to be amused by everything that everybody else likes and does.
What is Joe Lee Dunn doing in Kirby’s portrait?
YA KNOW BAMA AIN”T WON ONE SINCE HE LEFT, PAWL!!
Hey Phyllis, how many packs of Camel straight pipes do you go through a day?
For sale next to the Elvis rug and the Madonna yard statue on the corner by the Shell station.
If he loses to Tech, it’s ‘Hello, J&J Flea Market”.
Has a bit of Howard Finster feel to it. Needs more angels and an Old Testament quote to complete the picture.
I thought the same thing T.
