Goodbye to the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party"
Well the anti-fun police strike again, the matchup between Florida and Georgia that was previously known as the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party (and has since the 50's), will no longer go by that name. Chalk this up as another stupid decision to the likes of when the NCAA officials that decided that native american and other ethnic nicknames were no longer allowed. Yet nothing has happened to Florida State or the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame, but that is another arguement for another day.
Two students have died in the past two years tailgating for this game, one of which was underage. Maybe the universities or local police should enforce the drinking laws or arrest people for being disorderly. Does the SEC realize that drinking at tailgates not called the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party occurs? Can they get it through their heads that people will still call the game this even though they do not want it to be known by this? I have an idea maybe the SEC can get a sponsor for the game. I can hear it now Dr Pepper Presents World's Largest Outdoor Soda Party. You heard it here first folks!
