The first Below Average Photo Essay and we crunked it up right with a trip to the ATL for College Gameday and the Chick-fil-A Classic between LSU and a team that closely resembled North Carolina. It was an absolute demolition derby of cultures in downtown Atalanta, there was the typical ridiculousness of LSU fan, the added redness of NASCAR fan that was there for the Sunday race, DragonCon fan who felt it was totally reasonable to walk around in public in a spandex superhero costume with a broadsword strapped to their back, and it also happened to be Gay Black Pride weekend as well, so yeah, we were full tilt on the culture scale all weekend. What follows is our modest photographic recap of what went down…a recap that includes probably the greatest Golden Girl pictures ever…so prepare your loins and enjoy.
We were LIVE at Gameday, where LSU fan showed up fashionably late and hungover but nonetheless excited

Hard to tell who had more product in their hair, Erin or Herbie.

High shutter speed used to catch these two
I was wondering what that cold chill and sense of a ominous presence was…then I turned around to see
