Steve Martin and Ray “Dog” Walker provided commentary for the game between the North Carolina Tarheels and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets today at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Televised on my local CW station,the first score of the game happened in the first quarter with a touchdown by Yellow Jackets Roddy Jones. The rest of the first quarter and the first half of the second quarter were relatively uneventful. GaTech’s kicker Scott Blair threw on a thirty-four yard field goal. GaTech 10 and NC 0. The Tarheels’ trip to the red zone in the bottom of the second quarter led to a thirty-two yard FG attempt, which Casey Barth missed.
And then I had to go to Target. I wasn’t able to watch the rest of the game, but GaTech beat NC 24 to 7. Yellow Jackets quarterback Josh Nesbitt made two TDs in the fourth quarter (the third was score-less).
Observations & Miscellania:
1. The stands were filled mostly with gold. There were a few areas of light blue.
2. The Yellow Jackets wore white jerseys and the Tarheels wore blue ones.
3. Signal reception was spotty. More pixelated images.
4. The Fox Theatre got some on-air name-drop love.
