The Georgia Bulldogs 2022 season kicks off Saturday. We all know that Sanford Stadium is the home of the Dawgs, and it’s one of my favorite places on Earth. I’ve been a Georgia Bulldogs fan since I was a kid, and I kind of turn into a kid again every time I step foot in Sanford Stadium. I’ve got some pretty cool memories there, and since it’s game week, I’d like to share some of them with y’all.
I never really had the chance to go to many Georgia games over the years. My weekends were always spent working Guitar Pull stops in the fall. The first chance I had to go was in 2013. Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett were playing the first ever concert at Sanford Stadium. It was so cool to not only be in the stadium for the first show ever there, but to stand on the field where my team played! I was standing “between the hedges” in Athens! That was the best feeling. The show was absolutely awesome as well.
The first Georgia game I went to was in October of 2018. It was Georgia vs. Vanderbilt. It was a night game, but of course my wife and I and our friends that went with us spent the entire day in Athens. That’s what you do on game day. We went downtown Athens, we hit the University of Georgia book store and grabbed some gear, we tailgated, we had a blast! I knew right then I wanted to go to as many games as I possibly could.
The last game I had the chance to go to was in November of 2019. For a wedding gift, my wife gave me four Georgia tickets. She also gave us a parking pass and booked my buddies and I an AirBNB. Four best friends, who are huge college football fans, spent the day in Athens. We had a great time. There are a few places that make my list of my favorite spots on Earth. Sanford Stadium is one of those places. I can’t wait to get back there. Here are some of my pics from Sanford Stadium. Go Dawgs!
