Bo's cousins, Christopher and Charles, live in Jacksonville and tailgate on their boat every year. We always have such a great time with them and this year was no exception. They throw a great party!

After a few hours of tailgating we made our way to the stadium. Thankfully, the outskirts of Hurricane Sandy completely missed Jacksonville and it never rained that day - though it looked somewhat threatening all day long.
|at least we had a great view of a gorgeous sunset. not exactly what we came for that day, however.|
It was a terrible football game. Georgia tried really hard to give us the game and we just couldn't do anything. We lost 17-9, though it felt much worse. We also lost to them last year, making it their first set of consecutive wins against us since the 1980's. As bad as the game was, it was exponentially worse going back to St. Simons after the game and staying in a house with 10+ of our Bulldog friends from Atlanta. Ugh. As much as we love embracing other teams' traditions, I am over this particular tradition and plan to stay in Florida territory from now on. Overall, my FL/GA record is 7-4 and half of those losses occurred while staying in St. Simons!
