ROBERTA, GA -- Driving into the heart of Crawford County, the community was shutdown. In a perfect cliché, businesses were closed down and traffic was non-existent. The city wasn't sleeping just after the sun was hidden away by an evening fog.
Not at all. It was game night at Crawford County. More importantly, it was time for the Flint River Rivalry at Taylor County came to town. One of middle Georgia's best basketball games of the year was taking place on Tuesday night and no one in Robert, Georgia (population 1,000) was going to miss it.
