Maybe you are wondering how we got such an up close and personal picture of Uga since we live in Utah. Or maybe you are wondering why that shirt with a Georgia G says Cowboy Football. I will unfold the mystery. Matt is the athletic trainer for Granstville High School. They are the Cowboys and their school colors are Red and Black. They also use the Georgia G in all their athletic and and band attire. It is funny because I was at Walmart and I saw someone with a coat that had a G on it and it said something about a band. My first thought was that they were fans of the Georgia Redcoat Band. I thought to myself that it was a little strange to see an old man in Walmart in a little Utah town supporting the Dawgs but later Matt explained it to me. I went to one of the Granstville football games and ran into my high school science teacher who is now a principal at Grantsville and poked a joke about how they stole the Georgia G. I pointed to her shirt and the whole mood of the conversation changed. She got really defensive and insisted that the Grantsville G was different because it was wider on one end or something. And that they couldn't use the Georgia G because it was trademarked. I am telling you it is the same G. I had to hold back my laughter because I knew that she was just trying to covering something up. Matt even wears his Georgia attire and it passes for Grantsville attire. I find all of this humorous because our license plates have a G on them and everyone must think we are just die hard Grantsville fans. Matt encountered the bulldog at a football game and had to take a pic. He talked to the owners and they bought the bulldogs clothes from a Georgia store online. Funny how these worlds have collided! GO DAWGS!
