Bubba Watson Looks Very Bubba Watson-y at Georgia Game
This past weekend, Bubba Watson was at the University of Georgia game against South Carolina, a game that just slipped away from them in the end.
I found this picture from the great folks at Getty Images, and for some reason, it is just oh so Bubba. The backwards cap, the sunglasses on his cap, the strange look, and the fact that he's holding a football despite being on the sidelines, presumably just to hold onto a football.
Sidelines of NFL games are strange. I remember once standing on the sidelines at a Nebraska-USC game back in my ESPN days only to have some guy screaming in my ear for about two straight minutes. Turned out it was Larry the Cable Guy, and when I shot him a mean look he later apologized. This was just weeks after I had a good minute or two conversation with LeBron James and then still Longhorn Daniel Gibson on the sidelines of the Ohio State-Texas game. Yes, that was some serious namedropping, but it shows just what type of people want to attend football games, and feel like they're "part of the action." I'm assuming that's why Bubba has a football here.
