What's the Good Word?!

...To Hell with Georgia!!! (#thwg)

I can count the number of times Georgia Tech has won the annual Saturday-after-Thanksgiving matchup with Georgia on two hands (it's been eight times since 1979 when I started to watch). It appears little Charlie is indeed a lucky charm - because the eighth time happened today! The Jackets have had a pretty great 2014 season - including the Saturday Charlie was born and they beat Georgia Southern (and Georgia lost to South Carolina).

At this point, we find it's easier not to watch the game (in real time). Marc golfed. Sara and I played a pre-game visit to the Tieman's (when I took the photo above), but we left just before kickoff. Then we watched four episodes of Homeland while Sara monitored Tech's twitter feed. Only when I was sure we'd won - in overtime! - did I post my lucky charm photo ... and see what else was on Instagram. My feed is usually knitters and food, but today there was a lot of Georgia Tech spirit!


Katie's photo is - no surprise! - my favorite!

(hoping your team won today, too... unless of course, your team was Georgia!)


  1. Go Charlie!! I'm happy for you all (y'all). Charlie is a handsome boy and he's growing so quickly!

    We don't have a team, but I hear the University of Utah won their game which is a big deal (evidently).

  2. Oh, that is so sweet! Between the Packers and the Badgers, we've had our share of seasons with "rituals" -- including unwashed garments. ;)

  3. I love that last photo of Charlie with his dad! How great that he's not only cute but a good luck charm, too!

  4. What a fun day! The excitement of winning just puts everyone in a great mood! Don't worry Charlie - no pressure!! ��

  5. Even UGA fans are having to admit they just we're the team they always think they are-it was so much fun to watch.


Thanks for the feedback!
