Describe your typical Bulldog game day: Broadcaster Loran Smith is a longtime family friend who worked with my grandfather Sterling Dupree when he was a football coach at Georgia. Even when we lived in Los Angeles we would fly into Athens spend the night with Loran and Myrna and stop by Loran’s radio show on game day. We always have a fantastic brunch/lunch there and go on to cheer the Dawgs! We are still following that tradition now that we have moved to Atlanta. A drive over is much more fun than a flight across the country!!!

Share a tailgate recipe:
Julie’s Jalapeno Poppers
Combine 4 ounces of cream cheese, 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese, 6 ounces of fresh cooked corn kernels, and salt and pepper to taste.

Fill 8 jalapeño peppers that are halved lengthwise and seeded, with the cheese mixture. Wrap each stuffed pepper with thick cut bacon that is sliced in half. Place the poppers facedown on the grill over direct Heat. Grill and turn until bacon is crispy and brown!!!
