They Make Wonderful Thanksgiving Gifts...

I wanted to pass along information regarding a couple of events going on this weekend at UGA's main bookstore.  On Friday from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, the bookstore will be hosting Alumni Night at the Bookstore, where UGA alumni will receive 20 percent off all purchases.  Uga IX, Hairy Dawg, and several Bulldog authors, including yours truly, will be in attendance signing their books.  On Saturday from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM, I'll be at the bookstore as well, along with Coach Dooley and Charley Trippi, signing books.

If you're in the area on Friday and/or Saturday, please stop by. I certainly welcome any opportunity to meet with readers of this blog and talk about the Dawgs.

Former Bulldog Tim Worley was originally scheduled to sign with me.  Tim wrote the foreword to I Love Georgia/I Hate Florida, and rightfully so.  He was the ultimate Gator killer, rushing for a combined 239 yards, three TDs, while having an 8.2 yards-per-carry average in two games against Florida (1985, 1988).  In 2007, Tim was inducted into the Florida-Georgia Hall of Fame for his two performances against the Gators:

Unfortunately, Tim had to recently cancel for this weekend because of a family emergency.  He'll certainly be missed.  Still, there will be plenty of goings-on for visitors to the bookstore on Friday and Saturday. 
Have your picture taken with Uga IX, talk with legends Dooley and Trippi about great Bulldog teams from yesteryear, ask Loran Smith Whatcha' got?, and there will be a number of excellent books on UGA football readily available for purchase. 
Personally, I recommend the ones by the author with the last name of "Garbin"...
