It takes a special type of person to film themselves watching a college football game and upload it to YouTube. A person like Georgia-crazed Uncle Lou. Most of this footage is entirely useless but occasionally we get greatness and the ability to watch a person’s heart swell or burst in raw moments.
We got both with Uncle Lou on on Saturday as he took in the Bulldogs’ game against Tennessee.
A Jacob Eason-to-Riley Ridley touchdown pass with 10 seconds remaining in regulation put Georgia ahead, 28-24, and sent Lou into a fit of euphoria. In the madness, he picked up his television and broke it. He didn’t seem to mind because his team had seemingly just won a key SEC East game in dramatic fashion.
A minute or so later, Lou’s entire world came crashing down thanks to Josh Dobb’s successful Hail Mary pass to Jauan Jennings.
Clearly Georgia football is important enough to Lou for him to debase himself like this publically so I won’t pile on too hard. Instead, let’s state the obvious: never run your mouth until the clock shows triple zeroes.
On the bright side, Lou still has that sweet customized Jacob Eason jersey with the tag intact. That’s a fine item.
