I got my hands on the new 2009 Georgia football media guide Tuesday, and it sort of reminded me of when we were kids and the Sears Christmas catalog, known as the “Wish Book,” would arrive. The three King boys would battle over who got to flip through its wondrous pages first.
Only this time I didn’t even have to fight off my son, since he’s now living in D.C. Tough luck, Bill, you can see it when you come home for the McCartney concert in August!
Although ostensibly aimed at the media who cover the Bulldogs, the guides have always been a fan favorite and in fact used to be sent free to all Bulldog Club/Hartman Fund contributors, before the athletic association cheaped out a few years ago.
You can still buy a copy, though, at various retail outlets in Athens and by mail or online. The athletic association says it’s available for $15 from the GShop of Georgiadogs.com and the UGA Book Store, though it hadn’t yet shown up on either’s Web site
