    I wasn't going to say that only cause I'm only a couple of years behind him. :)

    I just like to rib him about it. @Supersizethatorder-mutt is a great guy and I consider myself lucky to have been able to tailgate with him. :D

    I won't leave any doubt about my age and will just say up front that I am 74 and closing in fast on 75, and I am looking forward to my 58th straight year of attending Tech football games, 53 as a ST holder.

    There’s a special place in heaven for GT fans who have endured nearly 6 decades of misery interspersed with a handful of amazing games/seasons. Bravo to you sir and all of your elders and peers!

    There is no place I would rather be on a Saturday in the Fall than in BDS cheering on the Jackets, win or lose.

    I'm a young pup turning 61 in a couple of weeks, but I do have a 5 year old Grandson and most importantly one year from retirement !! ... my first QB's were Mike Kelly and John Dewberry.

    Turned 72 yesterday. Attended UVA (class of 1969). but have attended games since childhood - say 1951 and remain a fan. Old enough to remember some really old stuff. Saw Wade Mitchell play; Theron Sap without his teeth, GT-ALA 7-6 (1962) and many others. Had dinner (really) with Coach Bryant in Memphis around 1980 - told him I'd attended GT-ALA (1957-58, his first in Tuscaloosa). Urban Henry won (10-7) with last minute field goal. Bryant made face, noted Dodd was tough. Then changed subject. Met Coach Dodd when I was a boy at Fitz Orr's football camp (late 1950's)... Saw the (Baylor) Bear under South stands.... Good memories - for a fossil.

    Fortunately, the heat doesn't really bother me.
