ESPN’s College GameDay is basically being broadcast through a blizzard in Kalamazoo, Michigan on Saturday morning.The ESPN College GameDay staff gets to go on some really cool trips, but we imagine they’re all less-than-thrilled with Saturday’s situation. College GameDay is currently being broadcast through a blizzard in Kalamazoo ahead of tonight’s Western Michigan vs. Buffalo matchup. Sam Ponder, in particular, is getting the worst of it out in the crowd.Fans though, showed up in droves. Some aren’t even wearing shirts – they’re crazy.Is this happening? Yes, this is happening!#RTBGameDay #rowtheboat #GetUpKalamazoo pic.twitter.com/2AOVP46mX9— WMU Football (@WMU_Football) November 19, 2016Sam Ponder having a tough morning out there pic.twitter.com/ICHDPuplgz— The Spun (@TheSpun) November 19, 2016Watching @CollegeGameDay is great.

Gotta love it! pic.twitter.com/bqcNDh7172— Chris Tunno (@TunesSTL) November 19, 2016Assuming both Michigan and Ohio State win on Saturday, the staff won’t be leaving that area of the country, either. It’s assumed GameDay will head to Columbus for the Buckeyes vs. the Wolverines next week.
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has appointed a committee to study the impact Brexit will have on Sri Lanka and the remedial measures the country must take, Deputy Foreign Minister, Dr. Harsha de Silva said.He said the withdrawal of Britain from the EU, popularly known as ‘Brexit’, will hurt Sri Lanka’s economy. Britain is one of Sri Lanka’s biggest export markets and the country was hoping to improve trade with the UK under the EU GSP plus trade concession. “We will strengthen trade ties with Asia. We need to expedite the proposed trade agreements with China and India,” he said. Dr. Harsha de Silva said that Sri Lanka will this week formally submit its application to regain GSP plus from the EU, but since the UK will now be out of the EU, Sri Lanka will look to sign a new free trade agreement with Britain.“We are now confident of getting back GSP plus but since UK will not be in the EU we are studying the possibility of signing a free trade agreement with the UK,” Dr. Harsha de Silva said. Sri Lanka lost the EU GSP plus trade concession when the former Government was in office over human rights related issues but the new Government which took office last year has met most conditions to regain GSP plus.Dr. Harsha de Silva said Sri Lanka needs to cushion the impact Brexit will have on the country so it will push to agree on trade deals with several Asian countries including India, China, Singapore, Pakistan, Korea and Japan.
