Georgia-blackout-vent
Georgia fans at September 27th's Blackout.

It was a weekend of extremes. Drama cried on The View, our nation plummeted further into economic decay and Georgia and Penn State both gave color and variety the middle finger.

 

Yes, it was Blackout and White Out night at those respective schools, where for this one weekend monochrome was king. Flipping between both games on TV, we couldn’t help but be more impressed by Penn State’s milky sea of euphoria than by Georgia’s smoky imitation. From overhead, Penn State’s stadium rippled and ruffled with life as fans, decked out in white gym gear, body paint and fluffy wigs, shook their pom-poms with pride. As the blimp flew over Georgia’s stadium, however, the first impression was of empty seats, as the blackness caved in on itself.

 

But then we came into the office Monday, and put together a gallery of the best fan shots from both nights. And we have to say, up-close, the Georgia shots are more impressive (both than Georgia’s television shots and than Penn State’s still shots). So now we’re torn, and we need your help deciding: Which was more impressive, Blackout or White Out? Check out the gallery to decide, then post your opinion in the comments.
