Later today, at precisely 4:15 p.m. PDT, you're going to see my favorite part of blogging at SBN hit this site:
The Game Thread for today's contest with UCLA.
If you're unfamiliar with the concept of a Game Thread, it's simple: It's a space where we all can comment on the game as it unfolds, sharing our (hopefully many) joys and (hopefully few) frustrations. SBN has a live updating feature on the comments, so it gets to be a lot of fun in terms of back and forth banter. It'll be open throughout the game, and I will be there to mix it up.
How can you be a part of it? The most important thing you need to do is become a member of CougCenter -- that's the only way you're able to comment (and do the other fun stuff like FanPosts and FanShots). Those of you that already are members are golden.
If you're not a member, take care of that right now. We promise, it's worth the 30 seconds it takes. Then come back at any point between 12:30 p.m. and the end of the game and be a part of it.
(And if you want to see a good Game Thread, check out today's ASU/Cal Game Thread at California Golden Blogs. They're always entertaining. In fact, join their thread! It's fun.)
