Curse of the Cherrishinski
If you saw the front cover of Sunday's AJC, you might have seen the photo above. It shows Matt Tovrog popping a Cherrishinski along with the caption:
"UGA fan Matt Tovrog eats a "Cherrishinski" -- a cherry soaked in grain alcohol. The treat was dubbed by his tailgating friends in honor of UGA quarterback Joe Tereshinski III."The Cherrishinski was actually invented at a Condo on Amelia Island in October of last year by a UGA Law School Student as was discussed here and here.
Long time readers know that this evil concoction resurfaced at the Auburn game the following week, and Georgia experienced another heart breaking loss. It has been discussed several times on this site over the past year that the Cherrishinski is the Official Beverage/Food of Doom(TM) because of its 0-2 start.
Therefore, I blame Matt Tovrog and his tailgate crew for jinxing the Dawgs. As Dawgnoxious said very, very late Saturday night:
- "We should fill Marquis Elmore's car with all the world's Cherrishinskis and drive it off a bridge."
