GT vs Clemson - Homecoming 2011

I'm still not sure why, but James has decided he's a Clemson fan.  (That he decided this when they were 8-0 is just a coincidence of course.)  With me being a Tech fan, I did as any good father would and trash talked his ear off.  My thinking was that we'd have fun trash talking before the game, then when Clemson spanked GT, he would be able to rub it in my face. didn't work out that way.

I got tickets to the game through work, so I drove down to Augusta that morning to watch James' football game.  Then he, Cade, and I jumped in the car and made our way to Atlanta.  We parked in our usual spot, by Rocky Mountain Pizza, and took Cade on a quick tour of campus before ending up in the hospitality tent on Peters parking deck eating free pulled pork sandwiches and playing on the blow up bouncers.  Unfortunately we missed most of the homecoming festivities that happened that morning, but campus was still packed with people and the atmosphere couldn't have been any better for a football game.

James, Cade, and Orwin Smith
As the game went on, and James began to realize that the Jackets were going to beat his Tigers, he got quieter and quieter.  Finally after the game we decided to jump the wall and rush the field with the students.  Needless to say, James was the only person on the field in Clemson orange, but Buzz and Tech's wide receiver, Orwin Smith, posed for pictures with him and Cade anyway.
