Dear Westerdawg, Given your history of excellent, fair and balanced reporting on the issues faced by our North Avenue rivals, I would be very interested in your take on their dilemma coming up on Sept. 2.Well Andrew, you ask a great question. Attending a televised game against the Irish to open the season would otherwise be tempting to all 4 Tech fans. However, DragonCon is to nerds what Crystal Meth is to hillbillies. It's an near unavoidable addiction. For those that don't live in their parent's basement, and who've actually touched a boobie, DragonCon is:
Unfortunately for the 3 or 4 Tech football fans, their season opener happens to coincide with DragonCon (in Atlanta the 1st through the 3rd, I think). How will they decide between their compulsion to hurl seafood and liquor at catholics and dressing up to attend the holiest of holy nerd-meccas? - Andrew
Dragon*Con is America's largest, multi-media, popular arts convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film.
Obviously, after attending the Parade at 10:00 am through downtown Atlanta Saturday morning.
In fact, it probably makes sense to combine your two true loves by wearing DragonCon gear to the game. As shown to the right.
But that's not the perfect solution either as the Game is in direct conflict with conference sessions such as:
- TrekTrak 2006: Starfleet International Captain's Call
- Mr. Star Wars Contest
- Buffy Track: "So You Think You're a Vengeance Demon?"
- Living in Einstein's Universe

On a serious note, any Notre Dame fan who doesn't have hotel rooms booked for this game has made a HUGE blunder. 25,000 nerds are in town for DragonCon. If you waited til the last minute, you're staying way away from downtown.
