Scottie Mayfield just served me ice cream

I was sitting in Woodruff Hall earlier this evening, eating my salad, when a man in yellow and wearing a large Buzz hat started shouting something about ice cream. This is not a component of the average evening at the dining hall. Naturally, the hall got quiet and all soon realized that Scotty Mayfield was in our midst.


Turns out, he's a Tech grad and is here to celebrate the opening of a Mayfield ice cream bar at Woodruff. Yum. So, in the end, I got served ice cream by The Ice Cream Man himself. Here's a pic of the scene:


Oh, and I just happen to have two tickets to the GT vs. Notre Dame game this Saturday (subject to verification). Please express interest if you are indeed interested.

Nice to know that engineering degree went to good use. Jeffrey, you too can look forward to a career in the dairy sciences.

Ice cream. Yum.

Yeah, Tech just might prepare me to be a successful businessman and owner of a $200-million dollar company. Dang, I should have gone to UGA...

I guess the colors of the Mayfield logo makes sense now.

He CLAIMS the yellow jug protects the milk from damaging light rays and makes it taste better but NOW we know it's just a plug for his Alma Mater.

Does GT have a big marketing major?

We have an excellent business and management school for Techies who are not, er, techies. I don't think there's much in the way of marketing.

Yellow or not, Mayfield milk is still too expensive for college students. Guess we're not the target demographic. But free Mayfield ice cream at the dining hall works.

And, by the way, the ticket has been taken. It's almost time to sting the Irish!

I just posted something, but i don't see it. If you end up getting it, Jeffrey, never mind. I just noticed the dates from your post. It's now a year and a half later . . . which makes it even weirder that your blog came up when I googled his name.

Okay, that's just weird. We just toured Mayfield Dairy and met Scottie Mayfield. He told me he was at the Braselton plant since he did a thing for GA (I thought . . . was it Tech? Or both?) I googled him to see if there were pictures of him from a few years ago, because I thought he was the big guy I used to remember on commercials wearing a yellow shirt, but that's not how he looked when I saw him in person. I may have this guy mixed up with another yellow-shirter (maybe a paint company?). Anyhow, when I googled, Jeffrey Stables blog site was on my first page of results. That's weird!
