Very little work or studying probably got done at UGA today as the university's website and internet (now lower case thanks to the AP) access were sluggish and/or completely down.
Haha, suckers, I already made my bread/milk/whiskey run before posting this, but it might snow on Friday or Saturday.
Clarke and Oconee counties (and points north) are included in a winter weather advisoryissued by the National Weather Service today. The advisory is in effect from 3 p.m. Friday until 7 p.m. Saturday.
Football game days in Athens are always intense, but the Georgia-Alabama game this weekend has the potential to be pure pandemonium. Hide the women and children, board up your windows and hunker down.
“The high-profile 3:30 p.m. game in Sanford Stadium is expected to draw one of the largest crowds of the past couple years,” according to a UGA news release.
U.S. Rep. Jody Hice (R-Loganville) is a fundamentalist Christian who is staunchly opposed to same-sex marriage. So it’s really no surprise that he’s standing by Kim Davis, the Kentucky court clerk who was held in contempt of court and jailed last week for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in violation of a recent Supreme Court ruling striking down same-sex marriage bans nationwide.
In a surprise announcement this morning, the Georgia Theatre revealed that country superstar Kenny Chesney—he of "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" renown—will perform a show at the downtown venue Friday at 8 p.m. Posters for the appearance include a logo that reads "CMT Instant Jam," leading to speculation that the concert will be taped for an upcoming television show.
Yesterday we brought you the news that "Party Down South," the CMT series that features eight under-brained young adults with nicknames like "Daddy" and "Lil' Bit" living together for a couple months and terrorizing whatever unlucky locale happens to be playing host while destroying their minds and bodies with insane amounts of alcohol, has chosen our unlucky locale to film its upcoming second season.
Already, tales of horror have started to filter in, with folks reporting sightings of cast members riding through downtown in trucks and imploring female bystanders to bare their breasts for the cameras.
And that was Monday morning. We have a feeling it will get much worse before it gets better.
So, as a public service, we'll track further tales of menace (or, y'know, just let you know where they are so you can stalk/harass/avoid them) in this post, which we'll update as tips come in. Send us your sightings on Twitter at @FlagpoleMag, or via Facebook.
More after the jump.
