Did you know that a toaster will not survive a trip off a third-story balcony? I'm the guy who found that out about halfway through the third quarter of the '06 Georgia-Colorado game. I'm 35 going on 7, I'm a cog in the communications/fund-raising machine of a major state university that is not my alma mater, and I live and die (and occasionally go absolutely bug-nuts insane) with the Georgia Bulldogs. Surprisingly enough, I generally have a good sense of humor about it, too, but our mascot Uga and the 1999 UGA-GT game are absolutely off limits. I will fight you, and I fight dirty.
