This Saturday, the game of college football and the SEC division will witness a clash of the titans. The Georgia Bulldogs will face off against Alabama for the SEC championship and the right to face off against the number one rated team Notre Dame. With so much on the line you can be sure that both teams will bring their “A game” and have one heck of a football game. So get the burgers and beers ready, this weekend will host a football game that will most certainly feature plenty of clips for the highlight reel. You can bet that I’m rooting for Georgia but nobody can deny that Bama is going to put up quite a fight.

If you’re around the Atlanta area and you’re looking for something fun that the whole family can enjoy, I suggest making a stop by the Georgia Aquarium. The Georgia Aquarium is the largest aquarium in the United States and is one of two aquariums in the world to feature the monstrous Whale Shark. The entire aquarium is a wonder on the eyes and will keep you amazed the entire time. From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave you will view a tour or the beauty of the ocean like you’ve never seen before.

One of the things I dislike about Georgia is that it’s still one of the states that doesn’t allow gambling. Granted to get the thrill of a casino, you could always just make a trip to the casinos in Mississippi and hit up the casinos there. But so many people, including myself, have busy schedules and a weekend trip just isn’t in the question for them. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to drive down the street and get the thrill of playing a real game of poker or blackjack? Unfortunately for us however gambling is still illegal in Georgia and until that changes, the casinos will remain quite a drive away.

This October marks the end of the career of the legendary Atlanta Braves baseball player Chipper Jones. Jones played his final game for the Braves on October 5th during the 2012 National League Wild Car Playoff game against the St. Louis Cardinals. During his time with the Braves Chipper has received many awards and honors including being named Player of the Week four times and the National League All-Star eight times. He ended his career with over 2,700 hits, 1,600 RBI’s and hit over .300 from each side of home plate as a switch hitter. He played with the Braves for 19 consecutive seasons will not be soon forgotten in Braves history.

No matter where you live, you can be sure there are poker tournaments going on somewhere near you the next time you want to play a few hands. Even here in Georgia there are bars and restaurants all over the state that hold tournaments on any given day of the week. Anywhere from north Georgia to Atlanta down to south Georgia there is always a poker tournament somewhere close and can give you a reason to go out on any night and have a great time playing hand after hand of poker with the chance of winning lots of cash and prizes.

If you sat at home and did nothing all weekend, then you certainly missed out on all the fun and good times up in Atlanta. Music Midtown came back to Atlanta this weekend, only the second time since it stopped a few years back. It’s back now though and it meant business this time. Plenty of big name acts like Florence and The Machine, Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam graced the stages in Atlanta and left the 52,000 in attendance with a weekend to remember. If you didn’t catch it this year then don’t worry, it will come back around next year. This year just be thankful you missed all that extra traffic in Midtown.

This weekend should prove to be quite an experience and also tons of fun. At Nash Farms this weekend they are hosting a full on rodeo. I’ve always wanted to go to a rodeo but any of the ones I’ve heard of have all been so far away. This one is fairly close to home so I will most definitely be checking it out. The only down side to this is that it is on the main road I take almost every day. So if I’m not enjoying the rodeo, I will more than likely be held up in the traffic from it. So if you’re looking for entertainment this weekend, check out the rodeo going on all weekend at Nash Farms.

When it comes to playing any game in a casino, you should always consider your odds and how to appropriately bet on those odds. One of the games that gives you the best odds is Poker. This is due to the fact that players are playing against each other and not against the house. Skill is a big factor in determining the winner of each game and learning how to properly play the game will give you quite an edge over less knowledgeable players. There is also no house edge except for a small amount that the casino takes out of each pot.

For those of us who aren’t race fans, living anywhere near Atlanta Motor Speedway on Labor Day weekend can be quite an annoyance. No matter where you go within 30 miles of the racetrack, you can be sure you’ll run into crowded and backed up streets, crowded grocery stores and gas stations and just an overall greater amount of noise. While the race does bring a lot of money and attention to Georgia, I would be a little less displeased with it if I just didn’t live right across the street from it.

It seems the weather has been changing a bit in the last week. With temperatures sometimes reaching down to the sixties again at night, it would seem the summer is nearly coming to a close. Before we’re back to the chilly days of fall, I’m hoping to plan at least one more trip to the casino. Something about a warm summer day just makes a trip to the casino so much better. The only question now is which one to go to. As opposed to the usual Las Vegas casinos, I was considering the casinos in Laughlin Nevada. Not only is it just outside of Vegas, but they also have many other fun attractions along with the casinos.
