Having grown up in the Golden Age of bowl games, all the big bowl games were on January 1st, though no one was stupid enough to program against the Rose Bowl and the Pac 8 and Big 10 conference champions. The mythical national championship was simply something to argue about. And all the games were on CBS/NBC/ABC.

Ah times change and this year I've been watching bowl games almost all on ESPN/ESPN2. Including West Virginia and Arizona State right now.

Clemson and Bama won their games on New Year's Eve, dumping Michigan State, and will play a bowl game next fucking week.

At least Northwestern got a bowl game ON New Year's Day. They lost, of course.

Most of the games have been blowouts.

Because I didn't have a TV listing and wasn't switching between network stations, I completely forgot about the NHL Winter Classic. Phooey.

College bowl games. They made a three-day holiday weekend in hospital bearable.

Oh, and ESPN mostly did a credible job of showing the games.

Later...
