T W O – Take Jacob to His First Georgia Football Game
Check! And what a game it was!! We took him to the Georgia vs. Tennessee game in Athens back in October and it was such a nail biter. We ended up losing in the last second, but oh what an impression the excitement of the game made on Jacob. I think he’ll be following along with Georgia football for a long time after that one!
