Football & Gas

So, y’all all know I love me some Bama football! We live for football season. My toddler’s nursery is decorated in sophisticated Alabama decor. So when I read this I about fell out of my seat laughing:

Gas shortage leads to fights, threatens college football in South

Athens, Georgia
A petroleum executive suggested that the football game between the University of Georgia and University of Alabama should be canceled this weekend because fans could drain all the gas in the Athens area, WSB-TV in Atlanta reported.

“That gas needs to be used for people to go to work, and for people to take care of their families,” Tex Pitfield, president and CEO of Saraguay Petroleum in Atlanta, told WGAU radio in Athens. Watch an iReporter’s take on the gas shortage in Georgia »

But representatives of Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue said he would not consider “a ridiculous idea like this,” WSB said.


Ridiculous indeed! 

Happy Scrappy,
