Here we are, just a few hours before the total solar eclipse, and who really knows what we’re in for? If there is anyone who can provide helpful pointers on how to best prepare for the unknown, it’s Bill Murray.

After Saturday’s RiverDogs game at the Joe, Bill stuck around for a few minutes to offer some sage advice to ahead of Monday’s celestial showstopper. If we are indeed just hours away from the reckoning (and who’s to say we aren’t?), just press play on this video and then make a few calls.
[content-1]The short of it is that Bill recommends calling those you owe a ‘Thank you’ to. “The phone lines ought to be burning up,” he said. No word on if Bill will be on hand today at the Joe where the R’Dogs are opening up the gates at 1 p.m. for prime eclipse viewing before a 4 p.m. game against the Augusta Green Jackets. Seats are already sold out, but some standing room tickets are still available.

Bill has some well-wishes if there is no tomorrow: “I hope you go to the right place.”

So we got that going for us, which is nice.
