Georgia football fans are serious about their team. They wear red and black; they spell Bulldogs B-U-L-L-D-A-W-G-S.
And when Georgia is about to play Notre Dame, they get rid of anything “Irish.”
That’s what Dill’s Food City did this week. The Royston store is less than an hour from Athens, and this week it removed all the Irish Spring soap from its shelves.
The No. 3 Bulldogs are expected to beat No. 8 Notre Dame by double digits, but fans apparently aren’t taking any chances.
Dill’s sign says the soap is “temporarily” out of stock, so it should return after the game. But social media and Bulldogs fans love the gesture.
Saturday’s game will set an all-time attendance record for Sanford Stadium when the Fighting Irish visit Sept. 21, the AJC’s Chip Towers reported. To accommodate the overflow crowd, Sanford Stadium will grow from to 93,246 seats instead of 92,746. You can watch the matchup at 8 p.m. on CBS.
