Just because Travis and I have been quiet about things on the Western Front doesn’t mean we’re not making progress. Here’s where things are at today:
- Hoppy has both a camera and a film editor (!) lined up.
- A fellow Dawg in Montana (GTP commenter Big Shock) is loaning him an authentic, game-worn UGA helmet. We’ve got them hooking up to figure out the logistics.
- We’ve targeted Labor Day weekend as the time for the Project to go into action. There are several sports bars in Hoppy’s town and there are college games spread all over that weekend. He shouldn’t have a problem polling 100 local sports fans.
The good news is that expenses should be less than we originally expected, as now we’re looking at shipping costs instead of buying a helmet. However, Travis is experiencing technical problems setting up a PayPal link at his site; any Web gurus out there who might be able to guide him through his issues, please e-mail me so I can put you in touch with him.
I’ll post something shortly about what we’ll have Hoppy doing. Feedback on that will be welcome, of course.
