Georgia grocery store clears Irish Spring soap from shelves before Notre Dame game

Atlanta Journal Constitution
Georgia tailback Zamir White is hoisted by lineman Solomon Kindley celebrating his touchdown run against Arkansas State Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019, in Athens, Ga.

Apparently, a grocery store outside Athens, Ga., wants no part of “Add a little Irish to your Game.”

The current add slogan for Irish Spring soap is no use to Dill’s Food City as the stores removed the bars off the shelves this week before the 8 p.m. primetime showdown Saturday between Notre Dame and Georgia.

The signs inside the stores in nearby cities Lavonia and Royston claim, “Temporarily out of stock. Go Dawgs.”

Dial it is.

The contest has received plenty of publicity as the two undefeated, top-10 teams square off in Sanford Stadium. ESPN’s “College Game Day” will be in Athens to provide even more hype.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
