"My brother and I decided to surprise my dad for his 71st birthday with something he has always wanted. He has never been to a Georgia/Florida game! So we decided to surprise him. My family is pretty tight knit. My dad is a retired minister, and has had some health issues over the past few years. I am the oldest of two boys. We grew up in a suburb of Atlanta, to two hard working parents. They weren’t able to always give a lot of 'things' but they would drop anything on a dime to be there for us. If you know anything about the South, we love football and the SEC. So, the Georgia Bulldogs are a second religion in my house. My brother, Jason, is a UGA graduate. We decided since the big rivalry game of Georgia vs. Florida fell on my dad’s actual birthday, we would surprise him. He asked us if we would come down to their house to watch the game with him, so we told him we would, ha ha. When we gave him the shirt, he thought that was the end of it! To see that look on his face and to see how happy we were able to make him, meant everything to me. The pure love I have for my dad inspired this gift. He is my number one, always."
