Athens Welcomes the Summer League

Athens, GA (AP) - Greg Nims has brought the 2005 incarnation of his
franchise to Georgia, in hopes of helping land some Widespread Panic
tickets for the 3-night April 2005 Chicago shows.  By christening his
franchise the Athens Brown Cats, he hopes to send out some positive vibes.

"My mail order is sitting in the management office right now, and I'm
hoping some good karma will help me get some tickets," stated Nims.  "I
should have drawn some fancy art or something on my envelope."

The Widespread Panic management office is called Brown Cat, which takes
it's name from an early Widespread Panic song.
