A public apology to the Gator Nation

It’s all my fault.  I knew I was taking a risk by changing from the blue long-sleeve t-shirt to the grey short-sleeve t-shirt.  You see, I’ve consistently worn the blue shirt, and the Florida Gators have consistently won since the beginning of the season.

Last Saturday I changed my shirt; last Saturday the Gators lost. Craptastically lost.

I fully admit that this loss is directly related to one woman (me), a couple thousand miles away, who’s not exactly a fan, changing from one Florida Gator T-shirt to another.

For this, you have my deepest regret and apology.

Better luck next week, boys.

Go Gators.
