Trailerhassee was a ghost town...

Postby Durty South Swamp » Thu Nov 29, 2012 9:02 pm

I spent Thanksgiving in Orlando at a time share with family so I wasnt able to view/post in the game thread. The wifi kept screwing up... Sunday morning early I rolled out to come back home (PC Beach) but swung through T-town on the way back. A good friend of mine who I deployed with is an ROTC instructor there and lives across the street from the stadium in a condo. He has an incredible view of the large flat grassy field area that fills up with tailgates and you can actually see some of the upper stadium seats from his balcony on the 4th floor.

I tell you what, that place was a ghost town! My friend had a big afterparty planned at his place and only 1 person showed up which in itself is crazy b/c this dude LIVES the never ending fratboy lifestyle. He and that 1 person went downtown to the bars instead since his place was dead and he said that everything there was dead quiet too. Noone was out and they ended up just going home.

I know this isn't anything all that shocking, but it just makes me smile. So I thought I'd share... we really wrecked those dooshbags season, just warms the cockles of my heart! Go Gators!

Oh, and my buddy agreed with me... they have hired Mark Richt lite... haha

No students around campus on a long holiday weekend. That IS incredible.

i guess you guys never go to UF vs FSU games... because they are on campus during a holiday weekend. Ive been to plenty, and when you win at home, trust me... its a wild night afterwards.

"Swampedurty" can't 'possobly' been a ghost-town, deserted; they
'shoulda' been everywhere-there 'cause they're back, aren't they ?

Obviously, you drove thru the "Tallahassled-wormhole" conjured
up when the Seminoles believe that they've been struck down by
invading 'gods' that they have no defense against. ----- hayahaya
hayahaya. :horsepoop: :horsepoop:

What else could they think ..... when the ACC's best assembled
defensive team "The Seminoles" got turned into 'Disseminopes' by
Gator invaders. And Jimbozo's playbook of brilliance, these Gators
found it so 'eruditched'.

Also, those Gators threw that huge after-party into the wrong kind
of bash..... an "on the field" bash. So in toto, the whole Seminole
tribe, without reservation, were cast into BCS-Purgatory & their
Chief-Leader into Limbo Fisher.

We went to Potbellies and watched the USC game with other gators. It was pretty crowded, and a blast to run that place after the big win. A USC win would have been icing on the cake, but chomping every single FSU fan in sight was enough for me.

Go Gators.

Hmmm I've been to like maybe twenty or so, yes for the winner it's like a huge weekend and great for Gator merchandise sales but for the loser it's a ghost town.
