1971 Peach Bowl

Posted by on Mar 16, 2009 in Ole Miss | 2 comments

It all made sense when I got the watch. My grandfather, Lamont Henry, was the team physician for the Georgia Tech football team back in the 60′s and 70′s, and he accompanied the team to several bowl games throughout the years.

The place to re-caffeinate. The place with a better music rotation than Rebel Radio. The place to run into friends. The place to relax. (And the place where I’m writing this post). I’ve occupied four different spots in here today, in my coming and goings. And the more I’m here, the more I marvel...
