I am still ludicrously far behind on answering my e-mail, but two recent items in my in-basket deserved to be brought to your attention:
- Cookin and Smilin pointed out to me that beloved former Bulldog Randall Godfrey will appear on the edition of ESPN’s "TitleTown USA" focusing on Valdosta, which will be taped on Wednesday, July 9, at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium. Tailgating begins at 3:30 p.m. and the filming begins at 5:00.
- The third annual "Countdown to Kickoff" event, hosted by David Greene, Jon Stinchcomb, and Matt Stinchcomb to benefit such children’s charities as Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and others, features Fan Day at the Georgia practice fields from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 19. Individual tickets are available for $30.00 apiece and a family pack of four may be purchased for $100.00. The Redcoat Band will play and fans may have their pictures taken with Georgia cheerleaders and former players, the latter of whom will be available for autographs, as well. Your contributions go to a worthy cause and you can check out the event’s Facebook page for more details.
- While I’m at it, I should also mention that Paul Westerdawg is a better man than I am.
I’ll be back later with more, but those are the data you need for now.
