MY DAWGS WON THE 2021 COLLEGE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP, 1/10/2022, MONDAY! (published 1-16-22; article #290)

 Introduction

At 3:40 PM, as I begin to finish this article, the snow, in large flakes, is falling thickly. At 36F, the snow was melting as it hit the ground. It may begin to stick later, as the temperature falls. Those highway folks must have enjoyed wasting the salt and brine that they had been using, to pour on the roads, since last Thursday. The rain last night and early this morning washed all the salt and brine off the roads, before the snow started this afternoon. It's just funny, folks! Don't forget to rush to the store for milk and bread, before we are all buried in this “blizzard!”

Conversations usually start on the weather then shift to other topics. How about my Georgia DAWGS!

The Crow I Ate

I concluded my 12/31/2021 article by stating:

The second semi-final game (No. 3 Georgia vs. No. 2 Michigan) starts about 7:30 PM this evening. I expect Georgia to lose, so they don't have to lose to Alabama, again, in the 2021 Championship game (Monday, January 10, 2022). Georgia let Alabama beat them, on 12/4/2021, Saturday, in the SEC Championship game. Yes, I am still not over that loss!

Go DAWGS!

12/31/2021 was the Orange Bowl (one of 39 2021 bowl games played actually, which is way too many). MY DAWGS beat Michigan, 34 to 11. That was a great game! I watched it all!

Unfortunately, earlier on 12/31/2021, Alabama (#1) had beaten Cincinnati (#4), 27 to 6, in the Cotton Bowl. On New Year's Day, I began to dread the national championship game, on January 10, 2022, between Georgia and Alabama. (On 12/4/2021, my DAWGS let the dreaded Tide beat them, in the SEC Championship game.) I needed more faith! I ate crow, gladly, on 1/10/2022!

Georgia Bulldogs - 2021 National Champions!

That was Georgia's first national title, since 1980 (when I, as a young man, didn't care for Georgia). The game was at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Here are the statistics, from the website, if you click the link (above).

I watched the game, on 1/10/2022, Monday, until about 10 PM – since I work for a living. (These championship games should be played on Saturday!) At 10 PM, the score was Alabama 9, Georgia 6. I awakened, to hit a lick at work (from home) the next morning, to be pleasantly surprised!

I WILL buy the DVD that shows the entire game! My DAWGS came alive in the third quarter! They became “super DAWGS” in the fourth quarter. My DAWGS beat the “Darth Vader Tide” by 15 points. (That's a stomp, plus one point. A stomp is a win by 14 points.)

GO DAWGS!

Conclusion

The Gospel of Mark, chapter 9, verse 24, states, in NKJV, “Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, 'Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!'" Read the context, to find the more profound concept.

I should have had more faith in my DAWGS, on 12/31/2021. I will not make that mistake again! GO DAWGS! I have faith in you!

DEAR LORD, I have ultimate faith in you! Do you, my reader, understand? I hope so! If not, contact me, on my Contact Form!
