Heading out with my lovely and charming wife to Atlanta later to watch Georgia Tech whoop (hopefully) Clemson tomorrow at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
It will be a special visit as we will be the guests of a player and his parents. The player, Niko Anderson, happens to be dating our youngest daughter. Niko is a sophmore, offensive “Center”, making his way up through the depth chart and following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather who both played college ball. From the one time I have met him (and multiple reports from Megan) he seems to be a really great young man.
What impressed me most upon meeting him was his firm handshake…and his understanding of The Rules for Dating My Daughters.
The four parents will be meeting for the first time and I have already been warned to “be nice”.
Years ago, I had a bumper sticker that read, “I only cheer for two teams. USC…and whoever is playing Clemson”. It would be fun the see Tech send Dabo and his boys home sucking their thumbs.
Yes, that would be epic. Even more so if USC can figure out a way to stop Florida.
