A Cocktail Party By Any Other Name

Based on today’s content, I’m going to have to change the name of this blog to the Georgia Blawg. Nevertheless, has anyone else seen this story today:

Florida and Georgia no longer want to be known for throwing the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.

For the non-football fans among us, that’s the name of the annual Georgia-Florida game. According to the story, some of the fans have – can you believe this – gotten a bit rowdy in the past. Hard to believe college students and sec fans could show such passion, but it’s true.

But much more seriously:

After last fall’s game, Thomas Oliver Brown, 23, was beaten to death in downtown Jacksonville. The year before, 19-year-old UF student David Ferguson died after apparently falling from the top of a parking garage.

According to the two universities, a new name for the game will prevent such tragedies. Any suggestions?
