According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Chipper Jones will be the first guest on College Gameday for the 2009 Season. Jones will be live on set sometime around 11:30am this Saturday, and plans to wear Gators' colors....in Georgia....
Chipper Jones plans to appear as a guest on the set of ESPN’s “College GameDay” show Saturday morning at Centennial Olympic Park, where the show will air in advance of Saturday night’s Chick-fil-A Kickoff game between Virginia Tech and Alabama. Jones will join Chris Fowler, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard to talk college football.A Braves player, wearing Gators' garb, might not be the wisest of ideas if you ask me. Hopefully he isn't lynched outside the Georgia Dome.
“Florida does have the No. 1 team in the country,” said Jones, who grew up a Gators fan in DeLand, Fla. “[ESPN] is in Atlanta the first week of the season, so it seems like a normal fit.”
Jones said he’ll probably show up in Gators colors.
“We’ll see,” he said. “I might get booed by a bunch of Georgia fans when I walk up. They’ve got me picking the Georgia game and the ’Bama game. Let’s just say one group of people is not going to be real happy and the other group is going to be pretty happy.”
