Staff's alma mater (and mine) wins the Fulmer Cup....

And I must say the acceptance speech from Doug, EDSBS Associate Editor for Sensual Affairs and UGA Alum, is a tear-jerker and ranks right up there with Gayle Sayers' Halas Award Speech in Brian's Song....

"I am proud to stand before you today to accept the 2010 Fulmer Cup, which represents the culmination of efforts put forth over many years. For that reason, though, I am not accepting this award merely on behalf of the Zachary Mettenbergers and Washaun Ealeys of today but also on behalf of the Odell Thurmans and Michael Lemons of yesteryear. I accept this award on behalf of Mudcat Elmore, whose car has become a permanent fixture in Georgia football lore. I accept this award on behalf of NaDerris Ward and all the other players who turned the humble motor scooter from a crappy alternative for people who can't afford cars into a brazen antiauthoritarian icon. And I proudly accept this award on behalf of Ian "Tater Salad" Smith, who got so thoroughly passed-out drunk on the shitter at Amici's that the cops had to break down the door. There but for the grace of God, Tater, go us all.

These men bit into the the ripe fruit that is Athens, Georgia and sucked out every drop of nectar it had to offer, and they did it (mostly) without hurting anyone; they showed the way for the Fulmer Cup champions of 2010. So when the definitive chapter on Georgia's 2001-2010 decade is written many years hence, let it be said not only of the Class of '10 but of all these young men, these hard-drinking, public-urinating sons of America, that they were "just good ol' boys, never meanin' no harm. Beats all you ever saw, been in trouble with the law since they day they was born."

God bless you all, and God bless the University of Georgia."

Now you know where that great arm strength comes from....
