Pregame blog

7:30 p.m.: "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men."

For some reason Samuel L. Jackson is here. He was just shown on the big screen on the sideline, wearing a Georgia shirt. Now I'm wishing I'd gone down to the sidelines for pregame. One of my favorite actors.

Jules ... er, Jackson, could have stepped in a moment ago when Georgia and Georgia Tech's players started getting into it.

My colleague Coley Harvey was down there, and said Georgia's players, huddled together near midfield, started saying some stuff toward the Tech sideline. Then about three minutes later it was Tech's turn to huddle and return fire, and pretty soon the jawing entered the face-to-face stage.

But it didn't escalate any further. If it had, Jackson could have started in with his Bible verses, and it could've just stopped there, but as long as he was still planning to retire quietly.

7:05 p.m.: Coffee in hand. Gloves in pocket. Not afraid to use them.

Both teams are on the field warming up now: Georgia in its traidtional red jerseys and helmets, for those of you who thought there could be a black-out, and Georgia Tech in all-white. Well not quite all-white, as the Jacket players are wearing navy-blue high-socks. It's not that bad a look, actually.

One thing that might be worth watching: There is a slight wind on the field, maybe around 10 mph. So field goals, and perhaps passes, could be affected.

I also just checked the weather report, and they're saying it could reach a low of 31 tonight. Lovely.

5:30 p.m.: The writer enters. He sits. He blogs.

Greetings from the outdoor press box at Sanford Stadium, where ... brrr ... it's 50 degrees, with the temperature expected to drop into the 30s tonight. Wonderful!

For that reason, it'll be interesting to see if the stadium fills up entirely. I would guess it would, being the final regular-season game of the year and all. But those that are here had better bundle up.

We're at least expecting a full press box. The Telegraph will have four people here, including Georgia Tech beat writer Coley Harvey. Unofficially, there's a rumor that former Telegraph writer David Hale is in town, which has led Pauley's to call in an emergency order for all its beer items. But again, that's just a rumor.

The good folks at Chick-fil-A are also here, passing out coupons for a chicken sandwich. There isn't much of a chance they'll pick either of these teams, but hey, it's a free chicken sandwich, whom am I to sit here and parse facts.

Jeez, Seth, just sit back and enjoy the game. That kind of weather is par for the course here in Seattle.

Here's hoping we see a lot of AJ, given this might be his last home game in a Bulldogs uni.

Go Dawgs!

What if we win like 250-0? I bet those chick fil a guys will think twice about us then!

Say Aaron Murray throws for like 700 yards and aj green catches like 20 passes for 450 yards. Justin Houston gets like 10 sacks and we just put on a show like nobody has ever seen before.

I'm just sayin.....

Is there anyway to get the radio broadcast on the internet without having to pay for the subscription?
