Alabama vs UGA

Athens Observer

This is my favorite game day cartoon never published.

I was living in New York at the time and had to mail the art to the editor a week early. Not a big deal since each idea was pretty much independent of other events - except this one.

Georgia was visiting Alabama and there was no shortage of reasons why the dawgs supposedly had no chance. However, they had lost the week before to South Carolina - a game they were favored in. Apparently the little elephant was unaware of this. So it never ran. Oh well, still a lot of fun.

 

Oh yea, and they won the game.
