This will be another quick hitter since its been a long weekend with lots of driving, lightning storms, and a crazy football game which went well past midnight on Saturday.
Saturday was one of the most insane football game days I’ve experienced in quite awhile. The day started off really hot but then the storms arrived mid-day and brought the humidity with them. And for the last few hours before the game, the sky cleared up and there wasn’t a cloud to be seen.
But then the game starts and FSU and GT trade touchdown drives before the PA announcers tell everyone the game is being suspended for lightning. Now…its important to understand that at this point noone had seen a hint of lightning or even felt a rain drop. We’re all looking around with a “You’ve gotta be kidding!” look on our faces.
So off we go, into the bowels of Doak Campbell to wait out a little over an hour’s worth of a lightning delay.
Let me tell you, fellow GT fans, as bad as you think the restrooms are in Bobby Dodd…we’ve got nothing on FSU. The “modern” restrooms in Doak are as bad or worse than the old dungeon we used to have below the East Stands. I kid you not.
In the end, we all know what happened and how crazy the game itself was. I’ll touch on those details in a blog later in the week.
What I’m interested in now are the recollections and experiences some of you may have had this past week during your own treks down to Tallahassee. How was tailgating, what did you think about the FSU crowd, and what did you think about the show…both from Mother Nature and the GT offense?
Those of you who watched on TV, could you hear the GT band and faithful on the broadcast? I thought Tech fans travelled really well and that our band really did a good job throughout a long exhausting night…
