About Joe Aramini
I love sports, meat, beer and bourbon. I'm a lifelong Gator that graduated from the University of Florida in 2007. I attended law school at FSU and graduated in May 2012. I've coached high school sports, been the night manager at a hotel, installed cable, and worked as a waiter and bartender. Currently I write about sports on the internet so I don't have to put on pants while I look for law jobs.

In honor of The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party (or whatever PC name they decided to go with this year, probably “Say No to Drugs Bowl 2012”) I’ve decided to share some of the crazier stories from the weekend. These are only ones I have direct knowledge of so feel free to share.
Florida/Georgia. Just mentioning the game will invoke overwhelming amounts of memories for anyone who has ever been a part of it: Jacksonville, The Landing, concerts, costume contests, boots, sundresses, jorts, gator chomps, lots of barking and a stadium split down the middle.
He’s everywhere and he’s more polarizing than politics or religion and he remains a topic that won’t go away anytime soon as long as mentioning “Tebow” causes people to tune in. Whether it’s to praise or demonize, analysts with agendas continue to stand on opposite sides of the debate in a perpetual stalemate with their opinions of the former Heisman winner. Here’s a breakdown of the most common arguments on both sides:
How do you measure the intensity of a rivalry: history, importance of the game, amount of games played, geography, the passion of the fan bases, trees killed, brawls, police presence, alcohol consumption?
