Day at the Dome

Bread and circuses. Beer and football. After a long college football drought I made the scene at the SEC Championship Game yesterday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. 

SEC_Champs Ryan Tully, an Arizona State student who came to hang out with some Georgia fans in Atlanta, sleeps off the Friday night partying before the start of the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta Saturday.

The first part of my day was taken up with pre-game feature photos. Food and drink, tailgating, etc.

So, on to the game. If you watched, you know it was really, really well contested. Right up to the last seconds. Highs and lows, peaks and valleys, but ultimately the valley for Georgia.
