    Another reason the annual party won't be moving to home and home any time soon. I guess for enough money Atlanta might be in the mix to host some of them, I don't support that because tradition is important.

    I haven't made a pilgrimage to the Motherland in some time; I had to use the Googler machine to look up this Celebration Pointe deal. Looks like a nice development, but if the idea behind the name is that it will become a focal point for post-game victory celebrations, I'm afraid they might be a little disappointed. A bit too far from campus for much of that, IMO.

    That said, if SOS opens a restaurant there with a Gator theme and his memorabilia on display, I'm sure it will probably do pretty well.

    Imagine, though, if instead of doing that, he bought into the already-existing "The Swamp" restaurant on University Ave., and put his memorabilia on display and held court there on gamedays. Hard to believe that place could get any more crowded than it already does, but it would.

    He should be getting a piece of the action from that joint anyway. After all, who came up with the name, "The Swamp"?

    I bet one person who's probably not thrilled with the idea of the HBC opening his own restaurant is my old buddy Brett F_____, assuming he still runs Ballyhoo's. That was SOS's go-to spot, but not if he's got his own spot to go to.

      This development took a long time but seems to be finally coming along.

          The movie theater at Celebration Point is awesome... and there’s Bass Pro! ;)

          Its not that far, especially because of the bridge directly to it. Wiggling the back Hull Road way, I can drive there faster from the stadium than you can get to all the hotels at Archer/75 driving a normal route.

              And yet, not SOS.

                Can't wait to try to Wuerffell Fries. And the Channing Clam Crowder Chowder. And the Te-Bowtie Pasta. And the Rex GrossManicotti.

                    I wonder if Mac has approached Spurrier about including Mombo3 bbq sauce on the menu.

                      THAT is a good man. I threw my green, unwanted ass at the FT Union in late '78 and that man spent half the day helping me tour the newsroom and downtown Jax. I didn't get a job, but I came away with a great appreciation for what he did and who he was.

                        I always liked Lamb. I saw him speak at a gator club meeting last year.
