Authors to Sign Book at Georgia Sports Hall of Fame

 

Sonny Seiler and Kent Hannon will be at the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame on Friday, September 9th from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM to sign copies of their recently released book, Damn Good Dogs! The Real Story of Uga, the University of Georgia’s Bulldog Mascots.  Seiler is the owner of the English bulldogs that have served as the University of Georgia’s mascot since 1956.  Hannon is an author who has written for Sports Illustrated and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The name Uga is synonymous with the Georgia Bulldogs, a perennial powerhouse among the top college football teams in the country. These English bulldogs are so revered that when they die, they are buried in a mausoleum at Sanford Stadium. But Uga is also a family pet, and Damn Good Dogs! gives readers a rare glimpse into the personal history of these nationally acclaimed mascots.
