Are you taking an out-of-state summer vacation?|
|Bowl games are hit and miss|
December 15 at Noon to be exact.
The Gildan New Mexico Bowl kicks off the bowl season, while the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (is the trophy a spud?) follows at 3:30 p.m.
Then we are in for 33 bowls over the next the next 23 days.
Every bowl game will have a sponsor. Although I do have to give some props to the Cotton Bowl which is now the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
Heart of Dallas is a nonprofit that's all of 65 days old, formed with the intention of raising money that will be dispensed to the likes of MDHA and other local charities. And it will be a year-round entity with corporate support that happens to have a bowl game.
At least it's not self-serving.
I'm still shocked there is no Walmart Bowl. If the state of Arkansas ever lands a bowl, you can bet that will be the name. Of course it would only be fitting that three-fourths of the concession stands would not have anyone working there and the express ticket lane would have an extended family of 50 waiting to walk through the gate.
