A unique perspective on the late UGA legend
A look at Loran Smith's recent visit with legendary Bulldog announcer Larry Munson
DALLAS -- If you were to meet T. Boone Pickens, you would likely be impressed. Certainly not because he would try to impress you. It is just that he is bright, considerate, and articulate -- a man who strikes me as having empathy for his fellow man.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Backstage at the Grand Ole Opry, Little Jimmy Dickens, age 88, is always cracking jokes, just like he has done on stage for more than six decades. The "Riders in the Sky" were harmonizing, and Vince Gill was vocalizing and subsequently singing the praises of Bob Wolcott, a former Bulldog golfer who gives him golf lessons. Holly Williams, with long flowing blond hair -- the granddaughter of the legend himself, Hank Williams -- was there along with an up-and-coming group called Steel Magnolia, veteran performer Stonewall Jackson and the Opry square dancers.
