Your Athens Game Day Stories

Your Athens Game Day Stories

ATHENS, Georgia—

"The thing about Georgia is that it never leaves you, no matter where you go in life. Athens...the Arch... the history of Georgia—it's just part of the fiber that is me. Growing up in Athens and being a Bulldog is special. It is part of your soul," so said Georgia legend Fran Tarkenton.

From the hills of Old Georgia’s northland, beneath the pine tree’s stately shadow, for six to seven Saturdays every fall, block after block inside classic downtown Athens from the idyllic campus to the beloved hedges becomes a red & black college football heaven. 

Every single bar is packed, jam bands are jamming, local beers are flowing, green eggs are smoking and Tech has gone to hell as an entire nation compresses itself into Athens town, the best darn place around.

You love Athens. You are happiest here on game day. Like Scramblin’ Fran said, Athens is part of your soul. 

Your Athens game day stories are the inspiration for Mayor’s new Goin’ Back to Athens Town quarter-zip illustrated by local Athens artist Shelby Gilbreath
