A joke with Georgia
Tuesday, May 19, 2009
OWINGS MILLS, Md. – I have always joked with Georgia’s Mallory Hetzel that she should be a poker player. She always sports the dark sunglasses that make her look like Chris Moneymaker, winner of the 2003 World Series of Poker.
She always has a serious face. I know if I played a table game with her I would be folding constantly, regardless of what I was holding. Well, this afternoon the glasses and poker face were off and she got to the point.
Mallory walked up to me and said, “Don’t you ever, ever, ever, pick against the ‘Dawgs again.” She was referring to my NCAA regional picks, where I neglected to think UGa could make it out of the East Regional.
I looked right at Mallory and said, “You got me beat.”
