I don’t listen to much radio on the public airways because I am a Sirius guy… seriously. But over my years of living in Atlanta, I make sure I listen to the Chuck and Chernoff show as regularly as I can. There are a few reasons.
One, I’ve tweeted Matt Chernoff a few articles over my nearly two years as a blogger and he has actually responded to them, which means he’s a cool enough personality to actually read loyal listeners’ thoughts. Secondly, I love how they react to said loyal listeners when they talk utter nonsense.
Much like the recent uproar about Mark Richt and his decisions after being fired. After season upon season of hearing UGA fans calling for Richt’s head, they are now angered by his actions once he was fired. It is absolutely hilarious.
I moved to Georgia 12 years ago. College football was never really my thing, as the only team I rooted for was my alma mater, the mighty Fighting Blue Hens. So, when I came here — and realized that Saturday’s were religion — I had to choose between rooting for the Yellow Jackets or Bulldogs. My friend Sparky took me to a weekend in Athens… the choice became very easy.
I chose the Bulldogs, and while I never really became a die hard fan, I have continued to root for them as well as their alum in the NFL that I watched. Since I never bled red and black like some of these southerners do, I always thought the Fire Mark Richt jibber jabber was just angry fans venting, like I always do over any coaches and managers of my team after a season ends without a championship. Now, I kind of get it… and it has nothing to do with Mark Richt.
The Georgia Bulldogs are making a switch this weekend in one of the oldest and most heated rivalries in sports. Tom Brady is good, and the Patriots are heading for a repeat. Turns out it doesn’t matter how little air the NFL’s best QB needs in his balls.
It’s hard to believe that we are a third of the way through the NFL season. It’s hard to believe we are halfway through October! It’s even harder to comprehend what’s going on in the ALCS! That being said, we sports fans certainly had another eventful week in sports. College football was a bit tamer, walk-offs, and late inning heroics continue to shine in baseball and Peyton Manning keeps throwing touchdowns. He’s no Joe Flacco, however (Go BLUE HENS!)
