At least not if you live in Clarke County, Georgia where school has been canceled today due to the high number of “sick” teachers they traditionally get the day before the Bulldogs and the Gators square off in Jacksonville!
Call it a case of the Red and Black flu.
Tired of struggling to find enough teachers to staff its classrooms on the Friday before the annual Georgia-Florida football game, the Clarke County (Ga.) School District — which includes Athens, home of the University of Georgia — decided to cancel school altogether.
According to area media reports, 137 teachers last year called in sick the day before the big game, and the district was able to find only 113 substitutes. Source: ESPN
Interesting… Maybe they should call “Dr. Tebow”, he might have a cure for their ‘flu’!
(Don’t forget to take the poll in the sidebar of this blog – so far it’s looking like most of my readers are Gator fans!)
