After a year away I signed up for ESPN+ yesterday after taking the last year off. The price went up but what hasn't?
Speaking of prices, with the start of the college football season yesterday and Dartmouth's first game 20 days away I thought to remind you that if you feel the need to buy tickets in advance, do it through the school's ticket office. Let me show you why.
Pasted below is a screen grab from one of the reseller sites. It's hard to read but it's offering tickets to Dartmouth's home opener against Sacred Heart and the Big Green's Ivy League opener at Penn. In red letters under the Tickets link it reads Limited seats available! It may be true that this seller's tickets are limited, but you can carve this into granite: There will be plenty of tickets available for both of those games.
Ivy – Princeton: Ivy schools didn’t have a season last year, so the Tigers return off their winningest two-year stretch (18-2 over the 2018 and ‘19 seasons) since back-to-back 9-0 campaigns in 1950 and ‘51.
Coming from a Northeast Conference that’s never boasted the FCS offensive player of the year, Chestnut will need one big performance after another. It’s conceivable considering the consensus All-American has been over 100 rushing yards in nine straight games and 17 of his last 21.
Dartmouth and defensive coordinator Don Dobes will get their shot at Chestnut on Sept. 15.
Several weeks ago I slid the standing desk here at the BGA World Headquarters down to the sitting level so I could occasionally kick back and relax.
With deadlines now looming, I'm working each morning pretty much from the time I finish BGA Daily – which is work, come to think of it – until I head out to practice in the early afternoon. When I arrive back home in early evening I'm back at the keyboard until a quick break for dinner with Mrs. BGA. Then I'm in front of the computer again.
Yesterday my back decided it had had enough and up went the desk to standing level. Dartmouth's first game may be three weeks away but the preseason has officially started . . . for all of us.
