Though your Georgia Bulldogs (and the rest of the SEC, for that matter) don’t start playing for another couple of weeks, this is the first Saturday morning that feels like a real gameday to me. I’ve made the traditional Maker’s Mark run like my ancestors before me. I’ve procured the finest cuts of meat. I’ve soaked the wood chips (hickory, apple, pecan... for whatever the situation may require). The smoker has been lit.
It’s a college football Saturday, by God!
If you’re new here, you should probably know that my favorite part of the “Gameday Morning Open Comment Thread” is subjecting all of you to the musical accompaniment of my choosing. Now normally these selections are exclusively R.E.M.-based, but we’re going to save the top-shelf Athens stuff for when the Dawgs actually start their season. Which means this week, I get to branch out to whatever I want... the possibilities are endless. In fact, I don’t think I can pick just one! And I suppose I should deftly jump between rock genres while I’m at it. Lord, I’ve missed this...
Let’s do it!
This is your Gameday Morning Open Comment thread and it is here for you to share any special plans you may have for the day, relay food or drink choices and suggestions, and discuss what you think of today’s slate of games. We’ll be here for the rest of the morning and into the noon games. Macondawg will be along later on with your afternoon open comment thread. Get excited! There’s finally Power 5 conference football today!
