Gameday newspapering: Dangerous

Woody Marshall, the photo chief here at The Macon Telegraph, has a big scar on his face today. Turns out a colision involving Ramarcus Brown and possibly a Georgia Southern player broke one of The Telegraph's long lenses in half at the end of a long incomplete pass Saturday. Woody was trying to take a picture of Uga VII at the time.

Woody: "You're not supposed to be able to see that part."

Woody said the prevailing opinion nearby was that he was dead after the collision. He also said Ramarcus seemed very concerned when he came back to check on him after the play. Except for the cut and knot on his upper cheek, he was.

As for the lens; whammies come to us all on Gameday.

Central Michigan, I fear, will fare much worse.
