Weekend in Florida

Marty and I drove down to Jacksonville, FL to visit my sister and her husband who moved there in August. She scored us some tickets to the Florida/Georgia game which has been held in Jacksonville for quite awhile. It’s a big party and even though it was hotter than Hades on gameday we still had a fun time.

My oldest friend also came up and stayed with us – she is getting her MBA at Florida so is now a stinkin’ Gator fan, but that’s more because her undergrad, Michigan, is hardly football worthy right now :) Katy and I have known each other since we were 7 years old and we both laughed/grimaced when we realized that we had pictures together from over 20 years ago. We can’t possibly be that old! She is a stud runner and we met each other doing youth triathlons – she has finally decided she will do some tri’s next year after a very long break from them. I’m sure she’ll tear it up if she can remember how to ride a bike.

We got to the game nice and early for some tailgating which entailed lots of food and beer. And sweat. Did I mention it was really hot on Saturday? Funniest shirt I saw from a Georgia fan: T-bag Tebow. Hahaha.

I’ll skip the game. Blah blah blah, Florida won again.

We were all sweaty, tired messes after the game. Marty and I had a nice run on the beach Sunday morning, though – it was much, much nicer on Sunday than the previous day.

I have a deep love for doritos.

2 Harrington's and 1 Radkewich - missing the other Rad (although she's an even bigger Gator fan, ugh). We were all coated in a nice sheen of sweat already.

Glad you guys had fun! Who doesn't love, sweat, beer & good food! I hear it's been hot down there. I hope it lets up for the IM Floridaers and us Clearwaters soon!

I thought of you as I watched the game on TV. My brother was there as well. She's an ex-Georgia cheerleader and he's a Gator. Right now she's taking pride in the fact that Georgia has a better cheerleading squad.

Funny how I find out how my alma mater (UGA) did in a big football game by reading a triathlete's blog. It's either that or ask my neighbor who follows the team a bit more religiously.

A couple of things, your sisters husband has a name and it's Scott. Also, she did not get the extra tickets for you. Her husband (that Scott guy again) did and he couldn't even go to the game. But hey I am not bitter :). Good to see you albeit briefly.

Peace
Scott (your sis husband)
