Season Tickets Arrive! Ramblin’ On Returns!

I’m not sure about everyone else out there in the GT “blogosphere” (is that a real word?), but its been an insanely busy summer for me and I’m anxiously awaiting the cool crisp breezes of Fall that mark the advent of football season. I’m ready for tailgates where I can mentally check out from the grind of the adult (real?) world. I’m ready to spend time with family and friends while sharing good food, plentiful drink, and unburdened friendship and comraderie. I’m ready for home games down on the Flats and road games against our rivals.

Bottom Line? I’m ready for some football!

For the past few weeks I’ve been following practice and recruiting closely while waiting for my season tickets to arrive. That magical envelope was delivered yesterday containing my seats in LW102, my Fan Guide, and a new Tech Fund sticker. My student center parking passes landed in my email box as well so I now officially have everything I need…its just a matter of waiting until September 5th.

I’ll use this brief blog entry to apologize for my delayed return to Ramblin’ On and let everyone know that you’ll be seeing plenty of activity here over the remainder of the season.

Over the next few weeks we’ll get into the preseason polls, player rankings, recruiting news, schedule concerns, record predictions, and even some good natured ribbing of our flea bitten “friends” and neighbors.

I’ll leave you today with a comment from my buddy “Mike”, which I found humorous…

“Richard Samuels ran for 108 yards and 2 TDs on five carries in the UGA scrimmage. Their defense still can’t stop the run!”

Ah yes…gotta love a little preseason smack talking to get you ready for Toe Meets Leather!

Go Jackets!

THWG!

Please ensure that upon your return that the Tech blog and pages get the same status as the AJC provides (supplies) Muttland.

Chris,

You have done Tech fans no favors with your coverage. Yes we are all busy, but if you really wanted to commit time to this you could. Why not delegate the duties to another Tech fans that wants to put more into this? The uga blog has daily updates and it makes us look bad. You mention you’ve been to several practices… but no updates! Oh well, the dismal Tech coverage continues… When we get a blog that is passionate as the dawgs blog, well… that may never happen. sigh.

WOW...

I stand corrected – you guys would criticize your own mother if she failed to incorporate all things Tech in the manner in which you deem yo should be updated! Un-freakin’-believable – and he uses “GTFan” as a moniker!

Why are you...

…folks so concerned with being on par with everything UGA? Talk about putting you inferiority complex out in broad daylight?

Do they also mail the free hot dog with the tickets? Or is it a free slice of pizza? I, too, am ready for some football…and a free hip hop concert at halftime.

I agree with GTFAN. This blog is more like the chan gomer gailey of blogs. Sad, but true.

We are not obsessed with Muttland. But we don’t understand is why the AJC is giving preferential treatment to you Athletic Supporters. And for the record, I will never have an inferiority complex to anything Muttland.

“GA TECH – Full Steam Ahead”

Ha. Wow, nice slogan. Too bad LSU made a “how to destroy the Tech offense” video last season at the bowl game, even with it’s struggling defense. I imagine the Dawg’s defense has had enough time to learn from it’s mistakes at the last meeting. And everyone will study how to shut down Tech’s offense for the rest of this season. So good luck to all you “Rambling Wreckers.”

Interesting – 21 comments, and 14 are from UGA fans. You guys are sure getting nervous about this year, aren’t you?? Why else would you be commenting on a Tech blog??

In the good old days the offer was 4 tickets to the game, 4 hot dogs, 4 cokes, and at half time the tech defensive secondary would wash and lube your car. Does that offer still stand?

I’m with you Boggsy! Can’t wait for that first home game on The Flats. We have a great home schedule and with all that talent back, it looks to be a good season ahead. Thanks for the effort! These poor dimwit dog fans can’t stand it.

oooooooo WOW!! The first home game on the flats between the projects. What an atmosphere for college football. You guys are pathetic!!! Do you really think we worry about Tech? You guys are supposed to be really smart, but yet you keep opening your mouth to show how stupid you are. We don’t worry about Tech until the end of the year, unlike your little league conference, we have BIG GAMES THAT WE PLAY IN CONFERENCE AND OUT OF CONFERENCE. The only big game you play is against us and thanks to UGA coming to your high school stadium you might have your first sellout.. You know it and we know it……WE OWN tech!!!! Always have and Always will!!!!!!!
