Sure I'm proud to be a Georgia Bulldog, but let's be honest people, I was a cheerleader in high school for a reason....The reason being, I had a legitimate reason to have my back turned away from the football field for the entire 3+ hours!
I am glad the days of cramming into a packed student section, clad in my red and black sundress in the sweltering heat and stench of beer and whiskey is behind me, and now I can watch the Bulldogs from the comfort of an air conditioned NYC sports bar....A sports bar may not be my first choice for a refreshing glass of wine and catching up with old college friends, but I do appreciate that college football brings southerners together.
Last weekend I cheered on the Alabama Crimson Tide with some Alabama friends and caught up with old college friends at another bar as we cheered on the Georgia Bulldogs. In between plays my mind began to wander as I tried to make watching college football more enjoyable for myself....and I succeeded!
I give you....
Rooms inspired by SEC color schemes...
Starting with the best of course....
THE UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA "BULLDOGS"
VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY "COMMODORES"
THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA "CRIMSON TIDE"

If you see me at a sports bar this Saturday (assuming my friends don't disown me for this blog post), I would love to know which SEC inspired room is your favorite; even if it is inspired by your oldest rival....I won't tell ;)
