“I can’t do a book about Georgia without giving mention to the Dawgs. The University of Georgia Bulldogs, a popular football team, has a mascot named Uga (abbreviation for University of GA). Uga, and previous mascots, were/are bred and residing here in Savannah. I painted an English bulldog in general. Uga is a white dog with a friendlier face.

My next door neighbor flies the team flag from his porch. Many locals show team spirit via bumper stickers on their cars, hats, clothes, and other items. Chief rivals are teams from neighboring states, Alabama and Florida. When a popular game is on television, our neighborhood smells like meat on the grill and cars line the streets for home viewing parties.”
