The Georgia football video team released a highlight reel of last Saturday’s victory over Tennessee. This could be one of the greatest highlight films ever. If you haven’t seen it, take a look.
First, the opening with the horror movie-type version of Rocky Top was great. The start to the 2:16 mark is the strongest point of this highlight reel. In that period, you had a Tennessee fan yelling at Mykel Williams, saying, “Nobody knows who you are!” I wonder if he knows who Williams is now. Then, at the 2:16 mark, it looks like a Norman Rockwell painting. You have an older Tennessee fan doing the boom fist pump action, a little boy crying in happiness over the Tennessee touchdown, and a mother cheering and holding her child.
I wonder when they left the stadium and how they felt going home that night. I would love to be a fly on the wall to see their mood swings during that game. Also, if you are the kid crying, it is a good life lesson to learn. Never get too high or too low on one play in the first quarter. I learned that lesson early, and Georgia won that game. I felt bad for him.
What I loved the most in this entire trailer was the 2:18 mark. You have Jackson Meeks nodding his head, saying let’s go to the entire Georgia sideline and the rest of the players are nodding their heads in agreement. This is all taking place right after the vols scored on the game’s first play! That is a team you do not want to mess with at all. They are stone-cold killers.
Another highlight I enjoyed was the mass exodus of Tennessee fans in the third quarter. Nothing makes me laugh more than Tennessee fans talking all that smack last week just to exit their own stadium with their heads hung low in sadness. I never felt that feeling before. I have never left Sanford Stadium in the third quarter, and Georgia is just getting blown out. What does that feel like? Well, on second thought, I don’t want ever to have that feeling.
Also, the ending was fantastic. Kirby and Andrew Smart walk into the locker room after the win, and Kirby gives a huge boom. It is just great.
The Georgia video team set the bar high, and they can come close to replicating what they just did. I doubt it, but you can always try. When I die, and all the people who care about me are at my funeral, I hope they play this as they put in the ground. It was a masterpiece. Something that can never be replicated.
