Sportsmanship and Sore Losers

Mallorie Aldrich   Sportsmanship is a life lesson many people are taught at a young age and learn to understand the meaning as they grow up and mature. Many people think that sportsmanship only relates to sports. For one thing, the word “sports” is part of the term. According to the Merriam-Webster, sportsmanship means “conduct becoming to one participating in a sport such as fairness, respect for one’s opponent, and graciousness in winning or losing.” Even if someone has a very competitive nature, they still understand the meaning of sportsmanship when participating in sports. But there are a few outliers …

The Chaotic Art of Tailgating: Florida vs. Georgia

Words by Carson Rich The unhinged nature of tailgating before a sporting event is chaotic enough, but for Jacksonville, the month of October brings this event to the next level. The annual meeting of the Florida Gators and the Georgia Bulldogs is a timeless Southern tradition with a whole year of bragging rights on the line. The game itself is always a great time, but for fans and locals, it’s the atmosphere surrounding it that unleashes the mayhem.    The “Florida Georgia game” as most like to call it, is historically one of college football’s most heated rivalries, bringing about …
