Call it a metaphor, call it the final touch on a shitty day… in any event, I can’t think of a better way to wrap up the aftermath of the Alabama game than by sharing this.
A West Georgia man was driving home from last Saturday’s University of Georgia football game in Athens when he stopped at a Jackson County gas station and discovered he was hauling an intoxicated UGA student.
The 47-year-old Alabama fan, who lives near Columbus, had stopped about 11 p.m. at the On the Run station on Winder Highway, Jefferson, when he found the unconscious student, according to a Jackson County Sheriff’s report.
After the student was awakened, he told the man he didn’t know how he got in his vehicle. Although he had a cell phone, the student told a deputy he didn’t know anyone in Athens who was sober enough to come and get him.
The motorist decided to take the student back to Athens, as he and the deputy didn’t know what else to do with him. The man told the deputy he was glad he didn’t get all the way home before finding the student.
