Missed it

What a monumental close one. On Saturday, the Volunteers beat Kentucky by whisper after slogging through four overtimes. What a season. Now Tennessee is playing for the SEC championship.

Of course, I missed it. My dad was visiting and even though he's an alum, he's not a football fan. Not in the slightest. And he told me that he was a jinx for Tennessee. If he listened or watched the game, that was it, the Vols would lose.

So, I put chose not to listen live, but hear it in the morning. I don't know what went wrong, but I couldn't load the game. I tried for quite some time before I gave in and watched the video highlights where they freaking gave away the outcome of the game in the first 2 seconds.

Go Vols

I watched every agonizing second of that game. CBS wouldn't cut over to my beloved Seminoles until UT-UK finished. I didn't have a horse in that race so was able to enjoy the excitement of the game for its own sake. I would've liked to see Georgia in the conference title game, just because of the Richt-FSU connection, but I'm not entirely sure it matters who represents the East...I'd imagine LSU is in a foul mood and itching to punish someone.

Last year I was in Asheville NC the Saturday of the SEC title game. This year I'll be in Chattanooga.

Why am I always travelling when the season champ is decided?
