Both the University of Georgia and the University of Florida are trying to change the unofficial name of their rivalry game from “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” to “The River City Showdown.” It’s a sign that we as a country are getting weaker and weaker. Although neither school has actually come out against the name officially recently, it seems that UGA & UF are trying to bury everyone’s favorite rivalry game name by promoting the new name everywhere they can.
“River City Showdown” sounds like something a local volleyball tournament would host, doesn’t it? Well, that’s because they do. Austin Performance Volleyball hosts a massive tournament with the same name. So does the Savannah Disc Golf Club.
Besides, the River City Showdown has already been decided when this guy crushed red shirt in a dance off.
We’re far from the only ones who want the name change dropped. A bazillion people have been sounding off on social media.
You’re really going to tell these guys that it’s The River City Showdown and get away with it?
