No joy in Mudville as rain, Dawgs layer misery on fans

ATHENS, Ga. -- Game day was a particularly miserable experience in Athens Saturday. The football game was only part of the problem.

It was a day that started with a measure of promise, despite a day long flood watch. A high-profile matchup with Alabama was set for Sanford Stadium. Fans flocked to Athens under wet skies. At times the parking lots were even wetter; some unpaved lots stayed closed.

"This weather really is slowing us down as far as parking some vehicles," said Mark Vinson, a parking lot operator. "Like right here, the cars are just spinning and the trucks also."

Yet the promise of a competitive game kept spirits bright.

"We came all the way from Savannah today, so the rain is not going to stop us," said Bulldogs fan Russell Elliott.
