Paul Johnson, Yellow Jackets are living it up in Ireland

Georgia Tech arrives at ACC Media Day motivated

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets aren't wasting any time in Ireland, leaving plenty of time for fun.

The Jackets will face the Boston College Eagles Saturday morning in the Aer Lingus Classic to kickoff their season. The team arrived in Dublin Thursday morning after leaving Atlanta Wednesday night. Since then, they've already been busy practicing and getting a look inside Aviva Stadium.

It hasn't been all work and no play for the Yellow Jackets.

Head coach Paul Johnson took a crack at hurling, one of Ireland's native Gaelic games. His first attempt was a bust, but he got the hang of it thanks so some great coaching.

Nice to see Johnson letting his hair down for a change.

After the team was served a meal of Guinness beef and lamb stew, the team was treated to a performance by an Irish band and step dancers, which of course defensive lineman Patrick Gamble got on stage to help with.

The fun continues tomorrow. Tech said it will attend a pep rally at a Dublin college and tour the city.

Thanks to Georgia Tech for bringing this story to our attention.
