My husband & I went to the Arizona State/Georgia game on Saturday & I saw the most peculiar thing at a college football game: the Georga ladies were all wearing black dresses & big-plastic red jewelry. Now folks, it was 102* outside & my first thought does not include dressing up for a football game where I'll be sweating my ass off.


I attempted to ask one lady bulldog what the deal is with the dresses, but she was far from sober & her response was that the "dresses go with the jewelry"........ok. So, I ask my friends on BDW, does anyone know what the deal-i-o is?


One of my friends thought it might be a sorority thing, but the woman I asked has passed that prime age awhile ago. cheesy.gif

at texas A&M some girls really dress up. dates of the guys in the corps of cadets often do. my friend bought a new dress for every game when she was dating a corps guy.


the most dramatic are the yell leaders dates. they wear high heels and all when we are standing the entire game.


the university of texas girls get dressy too, but in a different way. they often wear trendy burnt orange outfits.


there is really a mix. i always wore a maroon t-shirt & the most comfortable pants/ shorts with comfortable shoes. but other girls go all out. i mean, some dress up more than i even do on my dressiest nights out.

As a University of Georgia graduate, I think one word summarizes why the girls were dressed up for the football game you attended...tradition.


Southern girls want to look "classy" at the football games sometimes because they have been tailgating with a prespective boyfriend's family and want to make a good impression and other times because what better place is there to meet guys than a college football game:-)


I found a great quote on the internet that sums up football in the South:


"In the East, college football is a cultural exercise. On the West Coast, it is a tourist attraction. In the Midwest, it is cannibalism. But in the South, college football is a religion, and every Saturday is a holy day." – Marino Casem, Alcorn State University


That basically says it all. Some people dress up for church. Southern girls dress up for football.

I disagree with the quote (coming from the midwest & graduating from a Pac-10 school), but better understand what I witnessed now. Thanks.


And your fans were really considerate (for the most part....the one exception was a young "lady" in said black dress) & we even tailgated with a few folks who were very nice. Can't say that'd happen for a Pac-10 rival. cheesy.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
