    • Sharing is caring! We plan to go the the O & B game on the 13th. Our kids bought us tickets to the UT Martin game and two nights for a whole G’ville experience for a Christmas present! Raised them right.

      • SHP – sounds like you did raise them right. I have a daughter that I trained like the girl (Hit Girl) on Kickass, the movie. I don’t know where she is, but where ever she is I know she is fighting crime…lol. It has been a long time since I was in Gainesville, so I cannot give you any good joints to hit. I remember a restaurant called “The Tail Gator,” but that was over 30 years ago. Have fun and share what you can with the rest of us. I believe that Gator-6 might make a go at attending a game, but not too sure. Pay close attention to the QB’s please! GO GATORS!!!

          • Gator-6, don’t forget I informed you thusly – even if I were offered free NC tickets, I could not go due to my many medical issues. That is why I purchased a 75 in. tv so I can enjoy the GATORS up close and personal. The basketball game against Vandy was awesome since the GATORS stayed ahead all the way to the end. It makes it easier on my heart…lol. I appreciate the offer though Gator-6, but thanks anyway. Share what you see on this site with those of us that can’t make it. Muchass Grassyass! GO GATORS!!!

          • I didn’t forget Ed — just take all your meds and you can even use some of mine. Don’t forget I used to be a doctor…..I mean, I don’t do CPR except by the old 11B method (foot-stomp-to-the-chest) mind you, and practice was limited to above the neck, but I still remember how to dial 911 three times out of four if I can remember the number. Failing all that, I’ll bring a couple-three tins of Copenhagen and we can stay so stoned we’ll forget all about our pains!
