I’m flying to Atlanta tomorrow for two reasons:
1. To support LSU in the SEC Championship game on Saturday (they are playing Tenn. at the Georgia Dome).
2. To attend my buddy TT’s bachelor party (after 6+ years of dating the same, wonderful girl, he finally got smart and is tying the knot).
The game is a little bitter-sweet. LSU should be playing for a berth in the BCS championship game, but they lost a heart-breaker in triple-overtime last week against Arkansas. However, a win in this game virtally guarantees LSU a spot in the Sugar Bowl, which would still be pretty sweet (pun intended). It might also be my last chance to see Coach Les Miles in person, since all signs point to him taking the vacant Michigan job.
I’m also really looking forward to seeing all of my high school/college buddies. We all get together at least one weekend a year for a “guys” trip and we always have a blast.
