I thought I would go ahead and post an article about the fall weather and what happens every year once this season comes around and delights us with the beginning of the football season! Not only does my favorite sport College Football begin, but Pro Football starts up as well and gets going in September. It is always exciting to know that the Georgia Bulldogs and other teams around the country are duking it out for a chance to play in their conference championship in November or December. This past weekend the college season began while we were out of town and the crisp fall air in the morning really showed the signs of fall arriving this year!
Back in college we would literally throw a part because college football was starting the following week or that week. So, there would be a pre party for the college season kickoff and the celebration would begin from there. The University of Georgia is my alma mater and that is where we would watch the games, tailgate before the games and it is just in everyone’s blood in Athens Georgia to root for the home team! Me and one of my buddys at gutter repair Smyrna would go to all the games and have a blast, lots of great memories. For college football, the tailgating starts in the morning of the football games. I can remember we would wake up and there would already be cars parked on the street in front of our place downtown. We lived on Finley street in Athens which was right on the edge of downtown Athens. So, visitors from out of town to watch the Dawgs play would be parking everywhere they could find a spot. We would meet our friends around the areas where people would gather and just hang out, have a frosty beverage or three and get ready and fired up for the games. Those were some of the best times of my life tailgating for the football games at the University of Georgia.
Pro football is big here in the South as well and since we are in Atlanta, the Atlanta Falcons are the ticket here. There is also tailgating for these games but it just isn’t the same for me as the Georgia bulldogs are when talking about the pre game celebrations. The Falcons have had a few good years in recent past, and hopefully our team is healthy and ready to play this year in 2016 for the season and we have a good team. Our new coach Dan Quin is a great guy and everyone in the city is pulling for him.
In summary the fall season brings on lots of great changes to the weather. It starts to cool off from the muggy hot summers here in the South, the air gets crisp and the leaves start to fall off of the trees. This can only mean one thing, that fall football is finally here!
