Due to inclement weather (which is, of course, a euphemism for "rain") in the Classic City, the Diamond Dogs’ scheduled meeting with the Crimson Tide has been postponed. The two teams will play a double-header at Foley Field tomorrow, with the first game slated to start at 3:00 Friday afternoon and the later game getting underway at 6:30 that evening.
Evidently, Damon Evans is serious about Thursday night sporting events in Athens! Nah, I’m just kidding; I think well of Evans, but I don’t think he has the power to make it rain . . . which distinguishes him from Orson Swindle’s readership, who (despite a low total from the Georgia faithful which was bolstered by the admirable efforts of BCDawg97 and NCT) contributed $20,000 towards disaster relief. So much for the notion "that blogs are dedicated to cruelty," huh?
(By the way, I am truly remiss in not having mentioned this sooner, but, as many of you know, Kevin Donahue of Fanblogs fame recently had a heart attack. Naturally, all of us here at Dawg Sports send our best wishes to Kevin, however belatedly, for his speedy and complete recovery. Kevin and his wife, Merrin, have been in our prayers, if not, until now, on our weblog.)
In any event, since you won’t be getting a baseball game against Alabama tonight, I suppose I should offer at least some Crimson Tide-related news, so permit me to point you in the direction of Roll Bama Roll’s long-awaited big announcement. Since Nico is awaiting the publisher’s approval before releasing further details, and since I’m better at keeping secrets than, say, my good friend Doug Gillett, I will add nothing more, except to say that I think you’ll want to stay tuned for those forthcoming additional data.
