Families deck out their homes ahead of SEC Championship game

By  | 

BLAKELY, Ga. (WTVY) - It's an SEC battle for the championship! All eyes will be on the Alabama vs. Georgia game Monday.

There are fans, and then there are super fans. The Freeman’s in Blakely are definitely the latter.

Just drive past their house and you'll understand; from flags and signs, to driver’s licenses, gnomes and a giant inflatable bulldog. Gordon and Sherrie’s team spirit is larger than life.

“We love the dawgs!” Added Sherrie.
But get this, she wasn't always a Georgia fan like her husband.

"He had to convert me from an Alabama fan to Georgia. It took a while, but it finally worked!"

And for years, their home was divided. But the things we do for love and football.

"I still love Alabama… when they're not playing the dogs!” She laughed.
The Freeman’s also have a dawg inspired bathroom.

The National Championship game is Monday at 7:00 PM. Be sure to follow along with WTVY/WRGX sports team as they travel to Atlanta for the big game.
