Are You Ready For Some Football?

It’s that time of the year again.  No, not your first three day weekend in law school.  Football season is upon us (and when I say football, I mean American football).   For those of you who are looking to unwind after your first couple of weeks in law school, there are some great games on tap in Atlanta this weekend.

TONIGHT, August 30th, your Georgia State Panthers will open up the regular season at the Georgia Dome against South Carolina State.  If you are hanging around school late, definitely head down to the Dome. Kick-off is at 7:30 pm and students get in free with their PantherID.

Friday, August 31st, the North Carolina State Wolfpack (GO PACK!!!) will be taking on the Tennessee Volunteers in the Dome at 7:30 p.m.  This will be the first of two ACC vs. SEC match-ups this weekend.

Saturday, September 1st, the Clemson Tigers will be taking on the Auburn Tigers in the Dome at 7:00 p.m.  This will be the second of two ACC vs. SEC match-ups.

For those of you who saw this post and thought I was talking about proper football aka soccer,  I’ve got just what you need.  Drawings for the UEFA Champions League Group Stages were today, and there are some interesting match-ups in store for us football fans this fall.  The group stages will run from September 18th and 19th through December 4th and 5th.  The groups have been drawn as follows:

  • Group A: Porto, Dynamo Kiev, Paris St Germain, Dinamo Zagreb
  • Group B: Arsenal, Schalke, Olympiakos, Montpellier
  • Group C: AC Milan, Zenit St Petersburg, Anderlecht, Malaga
  • Group D: Real Madrid, Manchester City, Ajax, Borussia Dortmund
  • Group E: Chelsea, Shakhtar Donetsk, Juventus, FC Nordsjaelland
  • Group F: Bayern Munich, Valencia, Lille, BATE Borisov
  • Group G: Barcelona, Benfica, Spartak Moscow, Celtic
  • Group H: Manchester United, Braga, Galatasaray, CFR Cluj

Look for Group D to be the “Group of Death” this year, matching up the league champions from Spain, England, Netherlands, and Germany.

If none of this perks you up, just remember to take time to have a little fun on what might be your last weekend of freedom this semester.
