ORANGE BOWL LIVE OPEN GAME THREAD BLOG THING: Pregame And Such

Loading Scores

All right, here we go. I know we don't normally get psyched up for football on Tuesday evenings--that's generally not done in the Big Ten, y'know--but it's Iowa and Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl. This is awesome. This is very awesome.

Here's the two teams coming to the stadium, just in case you thought they were going to blow us off or something.

The game time is set for something like 7:00 or 7:05; knowing Fox, that means we'll be kicking off sometime around 7:38 and not finishing until--if you're really lucky--the year Twenty-One-Ninety-Threeve.

In case we have any new kids here for the open thread, a couple really quick ground rules:

1. No slurs or otherwise bigoted speech. Seriously, this is such an easy rule to follow.

2. Don't pick fights with other people.

3. That's about it. We're here to have fun and tell jokes and use profanity liberally (like this: fuckfart! ha, ha!), and we'd sure love it if you'd drop by.

Also, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
