The “Average” Florida Gator football fan, on any given Saturday, may tailgate on campus, grill up some hot dogs, and drink a few Natural Lights as they celebrate “the birthday of Florida football in 1991″.
Similarly, your “Above Average” Bull Gator fan will spend thousands of dollars for their Grand Gator season tickets in the upper deck, scarf down no less than 3 delectable “Easy Crab Spread sandwiches”, while chasing it with swallows of Jack Daniels from a plastic flask.
Today, however, we want to provide a glimpse of how some fans really set themselves apart in a sea of orange & blue.
An exciting new trend is surfacing in the way fans advertise their support Florida Gator Football. It isn’t a trend that involves elaborate Game Day plans, large scholarship donations, or face time with Gator Legends like Tony Joiner, or Channing “Chainsaw” Crowder. No, this exciting new way to show your love of all things Florida involves the intersection of Gator football and a solemn religious ceremony. Check out this lovely bride and handsome groom became a couple married in what appears to be some sort of bait store.
Un-confirmed reports of the ceremony:
To accent the dress, the father of the bride appropriately sported a Bass Pro baseball cap, reminiscent of the holiest of fisherman, Bill Dance, during the holiest of occasions. To add to the authenticity, the bride’s father made sure to drink a bottle of George Dickel immediately prior to the ceremony.
The groom also paid homage to Florida’s fine coaching tradition. Out of respect for Coach Will Muschamp, the groom appeared to have pit stains on his shirt and cursed throughout the service.
Following a reception next to a new state of the art Reel Fishing: Angler’s Dream [Wii Game], the couple left underneath a flurry of gator chomps with the gloriously horny roar of Bull Gator blaring from the loudspeakers, completing this romantic moment.
The Gator Nation is certainly encouraged by these beautiful acts of combining sacred religious rites with Florida football tradition. Such acts will surely contribute to Coach Muschamps’s ability energize his loyal fan base, boom motherfucker.
