Bernie Meets Bergwood

There's evidently some game at the GA Dome this weekend. I can't imagine any of my readers would wanna hang out in a sea of jorts and mullets. But the SEC Fanfare is hosting one special guest. Below you'll find all of the details, DadGum!

It seems I may have even scored an interview with AllState's infamous tailgater. If you have any suggestions for questions, from streaking to European girls, feel free to use the comments to lay em on me.

safeties worth more than two points in college football

WHO: Prior to the SEC Championship game, college football fans in Atlanta will get a visit from one of the sport’s biggest personalities – Bergwood, aka, self-proclaimed college football expert, tailgating aficionado and star of the popular Allstate college football commercial campaign, now in its fourth year.

WHAT: An organized movement to change the value of a college football scoring play. If a safety is one of the rarest plays in college football, then why is it worth less than a touchdown or field goal? Bergwood is posing the very same question to college football fans in Atlanta as he rallies support for “Proposition Safety,” a national campaign to increase the value of a safety from two to eight points.

On Friday, Dec. 4 and Saturday, Dec. 5, Bergwood will be at the SEC Dr. Pepper Fan Fare at the Georgia World Congress Center as part of the Allstate Tailgate Tour, inviting fans to support “Proposition Safety” by signing their names to his giant ‘safety’ clipboard.

College football fans can interact with the Allstate “Good Hands®” field goal kicking unit and the“College Football Legacy Museum” as well as register for a chance to win tickets to the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on New Year’s Day.

WHERE: SEC Dr. Pepper Fan Fare (Georgia World Congress Center)

WHEN: Friday, Dec. 4 and Saturday, Dec. 5

Note: Bergwood will be hanging out with fans during the Allstate Tailgate Tour hours (Friday from 1:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET)

Wait, Bernie isn't Bergwood?

Tell him he might be taken more seriously if he said 4 points instead of 8 on the safety change.
