The most obvious marketing hookup in the history of the universe

Shot.

Chaser.

Yes, they’re clown shoes.

And, yes, I’m looking forward to seeing the football team outfitted in Waffle House spikes this season.

    I completely understand that Tech folks have no sense of embarrassment, but they keep stretching the envelope.

    Next will be Waffle House- inspired helmets. And after that could Waffle Down replace Money Down?

    “clown shoes”. LMFAO! They really are clown shoes and appropriate for that clown program.
    I hope you’re eating well, Bluto.

    I hate how this clown has been allowed to co-opt Waffle House, because man, going to any Waffle House anywhere and having a pecan waffle, bacon, eggs, hash browns, and a hot cup of coffee really hits the spot.

      If my cooks had made breakfast of WH quality? I would’ve fired the entire crew and chaptered them out of the yankee Army.

        Dude, can you even be Southern if you don’t like Waffle House?

        I’ll take Waffle House over pretty much anywhere else, and that includes that overrated, overpriced garbage they serve at Cracker Barrel, after making you wait an hour.

        Seriously though, man, you and I have likely been around this great big country and probably other places in this world… you telling me the thought of Waffle House hashbrowns with or without your favored additions, doesn’t make your mouth water? 😉

          Man, the only times I ate at the WH was well after midnight and for some reason I was temporarily illiterate. I’d just point at the picture to order, pay the waitress upfront double the cost and tell her to wake me when it got there. No complaints about the wait. Been over thirty years since I ate at a Waffle House. I’ve grown real particular about where I eat and with whom I drink.
          I never ate at a Cracker Barrel.

          Maybe I’m simply used to better food. I guarantgotdamtee you I’ve eaten worse than Waffle House or Cracker Barrel.

            I admit to feeling nostalgic about WH but honestly can’t tell you if it’s good or not because I haven’t been to one sober since I was about 15 years old. I ate there at least twice a week in Athens and north Atlanta from 1986-1990, when I went from a 140lb Mr. Salty lookalike to a 190(ish) lb. softbody. A friend of mine and I seriously considered creating a guide that rated each location but crapulence ultimately triumphed over ambition.

            Cracker Barrel is pretty darn good. I have been there sober on occasion and it does what it does quite well.

    tech lost their dignity long ago. This is just further proof as if any more evidence was needed. My question is why would Waffle House want to associate with these pathetic losers.

  6. This is definitely the final piece to the Jackets breaking the four-win barrier, I can feel it.

    I love Waffle House. And I can’t help but smile every time I see a picture of Historic Grant Field. I have so many happy memories there. So, so many winning walks out of that stadium. So many.

    So Collins has given up recruiting football players from HS, and is concentrating on landing golfers. Sounds like a plan.

    Not sure I could get a caddie to wear those shoes, let alone a duffer.

    I wonder if the new coach this time next year will shill as hard for Waffle House. At least Gee-off will have a landing place as manager of the Conyers location.

    Adidas: Because stepping in waffle syrup feels so good, let’s make a shoe that reminds you of that feeling. GT: I’ll take 200.
