The Chapel Bell

As I have mencined before, I am a HUGE college football fan!  I am a season ticket holder for my aluma mater...University of Georiga.

My son Knox is old enough now to go to the games with me.  My husband is not as big a fan as I am, so he stays at home with Hamp most of the games.

The best thing about college football is the traditions!

One at the University of Georgia that not many people except UGA fans know about is the ringing of the chapel bell.

This tells the story of the chapel bell.

My freshman year at UGA, I lived in a dorm just behind the stadium.  The chapel bell is in the old part of the campus and is up the hill about 3 blocks from the stadium.  But I remember the chapel bell ringing all night after a football victory!

So after the Dawgs won Saturday, Knox wanted to go ring the chapel bell.

We headed up the hill and he waited in line for his turn.  I should have took a picture of him in line!  He was surrounded by cute girls and didn't seem to mind waiting!  That's a whole nother story....

Knox got his turn to ring the bell!

And he rang the bell....

Afterwards, we headed to our favorite place to eat ...The Grill!!

I can't write this post without saying a big shout out to some great friends!  While I was waiting on Knox to ring the bell, I ran into some old Redcoats--Joel Caughran and David Jones!  It was great to see them and to spend some time catching up...we need to do that more often!!

Go Dawgs...sic 'em!

Woof, Woof, Woof...

  1. Traditions are special when we get to pass them down to our children - especially when they want to be a part of it as well.

  2. Very interesting!
