For a state with Knowshon Moreno, you would think that Georgia would be content with what they got. But, noooooooo. First, they try to steal Florida's water. Now, they are blackmailing the Florida Legislature. From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution; (HT: Miss Lindsey)
Otherwise, lawmakers said, they'll yank the Gator tags just won by an Atlanta group of University of Florida grads from the state Department of Revenue.
First of all, congrats to the Georgia State Legislature that they have solved so many of their problems that they can worry about a freaking license plate. Besides, it's not the fault of the Gator plate buyers in Georgia that you only need 1,000 people to sign up to get the plate. In this AJC article the requirements for a plate are broken down.
Georgia Senate President Pro Tem Eric Johnson (R-Savannah) said those requirements amount to a ban when it comes to UGA alumni in Florida.
So does that mean Johnson thinks there aren't 30,000 UGA fans in Florida? Beyond Jacksonville, that might be right. But he should cheer up. If Florida can approve Trees Are Cool and Support Soccer plates, they'll approve anything. I would welcome UGA plates in Florida. That way I know whose tires to slash.
In case you were wondering, the Gator plate in Florida has earned $2.5 million, easily the biggest fundrasier.
One more thing, did you know the Bulldog is in the non sporting group among dog breeds? Seriously, a bulldog is considered to contribute nothing just like the stupid Standard Poodle. Hopefully, they don't get made fun of by the sporting group dogs, but they probably do. Maybe bulldogs should drink some Gatorade to get stronger.
