Our good friends, Devin and Sarah, got us tickets to the Clemson vs. Georgia Tech game last weekend. Sarah couldn't come with us because she just had a baby so we picked Devin up and drove to South Carolina. First of all, I love going to new states and I've never been to the Carolinas. Technically we went to North Carolina too, because we drove through it, but unfortunately I did not locate any smashed penny machines to prove it.
Second of all, it was amazing and I never wanted to leave. Devin gave us the tour de Clemson and it was awesome. It's such a great college town and I've never seen so many tailgaters in my life. I've heard the south takes their football pretty seriously, but it was a little more than I expected.
We also ate the best food you can have in one day. Before the game Devin introduced us to the Mellow Mushroom pizzeria. Swear on my life it is the best pizza crust in the world. After the game we had ribs at Sardi's. Incredible. These are the times in my life when I wish I could be bulimic.
The game was great. We had good seats, Clemson killed Georgia Tech, the fans around us were hilarious and we got to see the most exciting 25 seconds in college football. When the players rub the rock and run down the hill it's claimed to be the most exciting 25 seconds in college football. I peed a little so you know it was good.
We totally bought Clemson shirts so we would blend in and because we love being posers at football games. Get ready for some orange.
