Scary stuff going on in Atlanta and the SEC Tournament. I saw an update on ESPN that Alabama had hit a three to send their game into Overtime against Mississippi State, but that’s probably not what anyone is thinking about right now…..

The Georgia Dome is shaking. The TV monitors are swaying, the fans are scattering, and the insulation is coming down onto the court. As I said, rain delay. Sorta scary. The teams are back in the locker room, waiting this out.

Meanwhile the National Weather Service is reporting severe weather in downtown Atlanta, conditions that created this delay. Crazy, right? It’s almost like something hit the roof and everything started moving. There is this weird murmur in the air, with everyone just kind of milling around.

That’s pretty scary. Hope everyone is okay down there.

Update: Umm….this doesn’t look good…..

Update: Okay here’s the video….

Update #3: The Sporting Blog’s Spencer Hall was on scene and has a photo essay of the damage….
