Thankful For More Than Football


Thanksgiving provides a unique opportunity for us to celebrate all that we’re thankful for each year.  Everyone has their own special way of enjoying the holiday, whether it be with family or friends.

While you crank up the ovens and set out the tablecloths, it’s time we reflect on the things we’re thankful for.

Sure, the fifth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs are 10-1 entering the final week of the regular season with an SEC Championship left to play for.

However, winning is not the only thing that’s joyful.

In the words of Chris McCandless:

“Happiness is only real when shared.”  

Watching Kirby Smart build a powerhouse at Georgia is great but it’s the energy that creates all the fun.  Newfound success brings with it a passion that is indescribable amongst fans.

Being able to unite 92,746 people together on any given fall Saturday is awesome.  Add the most beautiful setting in college football to the mix and you have a perfect atmosphere.

We’re thankful for our dedicated readers and 150,000+ social media followers. We are thankful there is a setting where grown men and women can bark like dogs and not be judged. We are thankful for the memories that past Bulldog greats have engraved into our brains forever. We are thankful for Mr. Larry Munson, Charlie Trippi, Herschel Walker, Vince Dooley. We are thankful for Sony Michel’s touchdown run that gave Georgia fans the greatest thrill of their live’s in last year’s Rose Bowl.  We are thankful for the men who suited up to play in Georgia’s first ever football game in 1892. We are thankful for the 127 years of tradition that followed it. We are thankful our parents raised us to love the red and black. We are thankful that the good Lord is a Georgia Bulldog fan.

We could go on and on about knocking off hated rivals, running the Eastern division and winning trophies, but they are only extra incentives for dedication and loyalty to this program.

Nothing beats Saturday in Athens and nothing beats being a Georgia Bulldog, even when the going gets tough.

We are so grateful for your part in our inaugural year at UGA Wire.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Go Dawgs!
