is he OK?

For those of you who did not see it, right after H.O.T. played "The Bull" and then lined up around the tunnel, a guy was running off to the visitor side and one of the fireworks cannons misfired and blew up right into the guy.  Not trying to be funny, but he seriously looked just like an old Tom & Jerry cartoon where Jerry blows up Tom.  His shirt turned black and his skin looked like it was covered in black soot.  He collapsed to the ground after running towards the sidelines.  The medics came over and he stood up after minute or two, and then they took him off on the motor cart.

I hope the guy is OK.  Not exactly a good way to start off the season.

Maybe setting fireworks off on the field is not such a good idea.

I saw him through binnacoulars (sp.) when they carried him off.

His arms were pretty black and his back looked like the first layer of skin had been peeled off.

It was a mistake by the firework team (I assume that guy?), but he does have 3rd degree burns on most of his face.  Athletics told me he was ok, just some obvious face burn issues... it was a shame.

Well that's going to get into the college football sideshow hall of shame. Right down there with stuff like the Sooner Schooner getting called for a penalty, or Sebastian the Ibis trying to put out Chief Osceola's spear with a fire extinguisher and getting gang-tackled by a half-dozen of Tallahassee's finest.

I've had 2nd Degree burns to my hand ... can't imagine to more of my body and 3rd degree.

Seems he was a photographer.
