Albany - The Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers will meet between the hedges this week, but Monday their fans met in Albany to move that rivalry from the field to the blood bank. And, a love of football flows in the blood of some fans.
"It's the oldest rivalry in the SEC," said Georgia Fan Dee Matthews. Matthews sat next to a lifelong Auburn lover Clay Ethridge at the Blood Donation Center on Dawson Road.
"If I'm not working, I watch the game on TV or head to Auburn. If I am working, I listen to the game on the radio. It's my Saturday routine," said Ethridge. To show their support for their teams both Dee and Clay rolled up their sleeves and donated blood in the annual Georgia/Auburn blood drive.
"Is my blood red and black," asked Matthews to her phlebotomist with a laugh. "It's going to be a good game, you just never know what will happen at the Georgia/Auburn game."
"It doesn't matter what kind of season either school has had, Georgia/Auburn is always a good game," echoed Ethridge in the next chair.
So who will win? "I think Auburn's going to win the game and blood drive," said Ethridge.
"Of course, Georgia," said Matthews. Well you didn't expect them to agree, did you?
The Red Cross hopes at least 200 Bulldog and Tiger fans will donate blood this week, so maybe the real winners are the people who'll receive life-saving blood thanks to this old school football rivalry.
The blood drive continues through Saturday at the donation center on Dawson Road. Donors get a free t-shirt.
