Informing either a Georgia Dawg or a doctor, “I bleed white and gold,” will likely cause sincere concern. Both will question your health. One will question your sanity . . . but only because when it comes to college sports, team loyalty runs deep.
Chick-fil-A and the soon-to-open College Football Hall of Fame would like to award those who take this undying devotion to the highest level. Those of you who schedule each and every aspect of life around gamedays. The ones who choose body paint and foam fingers over coats and gloves on brisk fall nights. And especially the ones who defy medical research and bleed obnoxious color combinations (white and gold can’t be healthy).
The First 100 at the Hall contest enhances the already-present eat, sleep, and breathe college football mentality, granting finalists free Chick-fil-A meals for a year, an invitation to spend the night on the Hall’s Playing Field, and the chance to experience the exhibits and activities offered in the College Football Hall of Fame before its official opening later in August.
To qualify, describe your loving commitment to college football in 250 words or less, and submit the essay no later than July 27. The sports fanatics who write the 100 most passionate and creative essays will be chosen as finalists, receiving the sneak-preview of the Hall and the chance to win other prizes from Coca-Cola, AT&T, the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, and Kia.
The College Football Hall of Fame opens on August 23. Tickets go on sale on August 1 at cfbhall.com.
