One of my favorite places in Gainesville is my barber shop. It is located right on University Avenue, and in the heart of the Gator Nation - as many of it's customers would say.

Chip Ratliff has cut a lot of famous hair; from football coaches to presidents. He has trimmed it all. I met Chip two years ago when I moved to Gainesville to go to the University of Florida.

Since then, he and I have discussed almost every possible hypothetical football machup, religion, politics, girls because no topic goes untouched in the barber shop.

Today, I went in to get a quick trim before the first home football game of the season and found this...

My photo of Tim Tebow playing his last game in The Swamp against Florida State is now framed in Chip's barber shop next to some of the legends of Gainesville.Thanks again Chip for being the best barber in town!
