Our first stop was the Women's soccer team...WHOA MADI!!! The girls were so nice to Madi talking to her about playing soccer and signed a poster for her. Ben was right there and they signed one for him too but when they tried to give it to him he told them he didn't want it! I instantly explained he only liked boys stuff and they quickly replied with how they completely understood. Thank goodness no offense was taken on their part...they thought it was funny.
While Ben and I were standing in the wide receiver's line for 1 1/2 hours he would go walk around snapping pictures. He took this one of Hairy dog mixed in the crowd.
Ben and the Offensive line.
Here is Ben with the new wide receiver AJ Green. He is a freshman and all the fans have high expectations for this one. He was one of the "hot" ones to get an autograph from. This was his first day in a Georgia uniform...so there were not pictures of him in a UGA uniform to get him to sign. Steve cracks me up! He got this guys picture from High School, an 8x10, really nice. His old school colors were yellow and green, so Steve and I went shopping together the other day specifically to get a yellow marker for this guy to sign the yellow and green picture. Well it was Ben and I who went through the wide receiver line. When I pulled out this guys High School picture with the yellow marker the whole line of wide receivers started hootin and hollerin! He was the special boy. It was so funny. Now I know why Steve made me do it.
This guy is EVERYWHERE. He is at every single UGA sporting event. What a nice guy to take a picture with anyone who asks and that's got to be thousands...he's an icon. Every year Ben and Madi get their picture with him.
