UGA is this little mascot which I find quite ugly... (Sorry Georgia Fans). He definitely has found a home in Athens GA. Not sure how many of them there have been but you can check it out and tell me if you have time to waste.
This one carved from wood is in the Lobby of the Athens Hampton Inn.
He is on Car magnets, drug reps lapel pins, nurses scrubs, pens, key chains, signs, statues, larger than life fiberglass figurines, bronze statues, street signs, mailboxes, windshield sun shades, stickers, pictures, autographed pictures, blankets, afghans, throw rugs, coke cans, hats, shirts, underwear, t-shirts, Light switch covers, Georgia Fan parking only signs, barstools, neckties, ear rings, flags, posters, board games, dress shirts, golf shirts, golf bags, golf socks, sunglasses, tattoos, temporary tattoos, sweaters, hair bands, wallets, belts, and I'm sure hundreds of crazy things I have yet to run across in Athens but I'm sure I will "run into him" 20 more times before I leave tomorrow for the mad dash to ATL to catch my flight to Tampa.
I'm sure many college football crazed towns across America are just as bad.. There is just something about how an SEC town kicks it up... not just a notch.... but a far as you can go without tossing your cookies.
Now Knoxville is just as bad.. right Amy? :-) I just forget how wild and crazy and obsessed people can get over their mascot of choice. It just seems the longer it goes on the more crazy fans get. These Large Fiberglass statues are all over Athens.
