Georgia Tech 38 vs. Mississippi State 7

The Yellow Jackets thoroughly whooped up on the Bulldogs from Mississippi on Saturday in Atlanta. Thanks to some free tickets, we went to our first Tech game in many, many years, probably since Buddy went to school there a long time ago!

The experience was all good, from the great football playing to listening to the band and fight song, and watching all the colorful characters - the SWARM of enthusiastic fans and BUZZ the mascot. Of course to top it off, we had to eat at The Varsity on the way out!

I took a few pictures here, Melissa went with us and she took a LOT of pictures here!

I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech, and a hell of an Engineer
A Helluva, Helluva, Helluva, Helluva, Helluva Engineer
Like all the jolly good fellows, I drink my whiskey clear.
I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an Engineer

Oh, if I had a daughter, sir, I'd dress her in white and gold,
And put her on the campus To cheer the brave and bold.
But if I had a son, sir, I'll tell you what he'd do--
He'd yell: 'TO HELL WITH GEORGIA!' Like his daddy used to do.

Oh, I wish I had a barrel of rum, and Sugar three thousand pounds
A college bell to put it in, And a clapper to stir it round.
I'd drink to all the good fellows, who come from far and near.
I'm a Ramblin', Gamblin', HELL OF AN ENGINEER!

I've always wanted a car like that. Glad you had such a pretty day.

I am glad to see they finally found a way to beat the Bulldogs! Too bad it is the wrong ones.

I've always hummed Ramblin Wreck and I don't know why. Perhaps I attended Georgia Tech in another lifetime.
