How about some good old-fashioned SEC football?
Oh, and there’s a girl included.
According to Fox Sports, University of Tennessee football fan Gary Yates has tickets to this weekend’s game in Gainesville, Florida, between the Tennessee Volunteers and the Florida Gators. Tickets for him, his wife Brenda, her daughter Jessica, and Jessica’s date. Only, Jessica’s date backed out.
So, he went to Craig’s List and put up an ad, trying to get Jessica a date.
He says his family, including his wife Brenda, is flying down for the game — and also using the trip to check on a retirement home they’re building in Punta Gorda. The “winner” of the ad will sit with him, Brenda and Jessica at the game.
Turns out, I’ve got other plans this weekend. It’s my grandmother’s birthday, so I’m heading to southeast Georgia. While there are some in the family that will skip an old lady’s birthday to go to a football game in Florida, I’m not one of them. So, I’m not going after it for that reason. And maybe a couple more.
But, hey, you might want to give it a shot. The worst that could happen is you see a college football game.
Okay, maybe something worse could happen. But, at least you get a football game out of it. Be thankful for the little things.
