Stick to the nice neighborhoods, don’t end up In The Ghetto of Memphis. Be sure to cheer on the Dawgs on New Years Eve and hopefully we’ll beat UCF so no one has to check into the Heartbreak Hotel. When you go out to ring in the new year find a pretty woman to give a Hunk of Burning Love to at the stroke of 12. Don’t celebrate the win too hard or you may find yourself doing the Jailhouse Rock (Damon Evans style). If you run into a cop have A Little Less Conversation and tell him your name is Johnny B. Good and you’re just having some fun! Hopefully you’ll leave saying… “Memphis, I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You”
As most of the Bulldawg faithful make the trek to Memphis I am ending my trip to Tennessee. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Memphis recently and I wanted to give a few pointers to the Bulldog Nation:
*Check out Graceland, Elvis Presley’s Memphis mansion. The King of Rock and Roll is the pride and joy of Memphis so stop by his crib.
*Get some good ‘ole fashioned BBQ. You can’t leave Memphis without trying some pulled pork. Ask a local their favorite spot and Let the Big Dawg Eat!
*Obviously you’ll want to watch the Bulldogs take on Central Florida, but check out some of the other Liberty Bowl festivities:
5pm – The Bash on Beale Pep Rally — Show some support for the Dawgs!
7pm – Memphis Tigers vs. Lipscomb basketball game @ FedEx Forum
8pm – After Dark NYE celebration – Ring in the new year with live music and the annual guitar drop at midnight @ Handy Park on Beale St.
