More than 90 minutes before kickoff here in College Park, where the weather is just lovely.

And by lovely, I mean dismal.


The tarp was just being removed from the field a bit ago, and while it’s not raining quite as hard as usual, everything from the gray sky to the steam coming out of some nearby buildings, there’s a rather dystopian feel to the proceedings.

For even more hilarity, some pigeons swooped down and grazed around the 15-yard line for a little while before the presence of some players chased them away.

However, things are looking a little better than they originally worked. The scoreboard is now fully functional, which was a nice upgrade over an hour ago.

More to come as game time approaches.
