Because I'm sure all of you sports fans out there have been paying attention, The Bachelorette finale was Monday night and, spoiler alert, Andi Dorfman chose Josh Murray, Aaron Murray's brother.

Aaron was a four-year starter at Georgia and was selected in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL draft (No. 163 overall) by the Kansas City Chiefs.

An athlete in his own right, Josh was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the second round of the 2002 MLB draft and played minor league baseball for six seasons. After that, he went back to school and was even on the Georgia football team with his brother in 2010, when he appeared in two games.

He certainly had the backing of the Georgia faithful, including head coach Mark Richt, who tweeted out what appeared to be congratulations:

Even Dorfman's dad threw in a solid Georgia football reference:

And contrary to other reports, she did indeed choose Murray and did not make a shocking decision to go with the Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid:

All in all, a great day for both the sports world and Georgia football.
