Thomasville - The Rose City Classic was canceled because of lightning over the weekend. "That is the game," says Sarah Annie Floyd.
For 39 years the Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets have battled for bragging rights, and Floyd has been there every time. She says, "I've never missed one of them, never missed one."
But Friday, the game was canceled due to lightning and Floyd didn't get to see her beloved bulldogs play. "Rains all right," she says. "I'll sit in the rain, plenty of times and I could go home and ring my clothes out when I took 'em off, but this is another deal when it's during lightning time."
The game was moved to Saturday, but lightning again canceled it, this time for good. "I wish we could've played it," she says.
From the time you arrive at Sarah Annie Floyd's house you know you're in Bulldog country. For the past 28 years, Ms. Floyd has attended every bulldog game except for four, three of which she was in the hospital. That's why she says the cancellation of this years Bulldog, Jackets match-up is such a disappointment.
She says, as long as football is scheduled this early in the year, we can expect more games to be canceled. "As long as we're playing this time," she says, "these few weeks, we can expect it more."
And she says next year, "I'll be ready. I will be ready, yes I will." As will the rest of the Bulldog and Yellow Jacket Fans.
Fans from both teams can catch football action this weekend, weather permitting. The Bulldogs play in Cairo, and Central plays at home against the Packers.
