TGIF, 'Nova Nation! Make sure you tune in to the football game this weekend - it's on Comcast SportsNet, so readily available for most of you in the country if you're willing to watch. Don't be that guy/gal who doesn't.
I'll be in Athens this weekend with Mrs. Lane for the Georgia-South Carolina game, so I won't be with you for the Battle of the Blue. Keep my seat in the GameThread warm.
(Okay fine, I'm that guy. But I have a college footbal crazed wife to keep happy)
