The annual list of the various gift packages that bowl executives will be distributing to participating players is out, and as usual the Internet is in an uproar.
It's that odd, wonderful time of year which of course reminds all of us of the famed mini-Beef helmet frenzy of 2010.
Next to me in the blackness lay my oiled white plastic beauty. The greatest bowl gift I had ever received, or would ever receive.
Anyway, here's what the Cards will be receiving this year from the folks at the Russell Athletic Bowl:
■ Russell Athletic Bowl
Sat., Dec. 28, 6:45 p.m. (ESPN); Orlando
$450 Best Buy gift card and shopping trip^; Timely Watch Co. watch; Russell Athletic workout shirt
"I was just thinking the other day about how I don't have ANY workout shirts." --Every Louisville football player
Also, could we not think of a better name for a watch company than Timely? It's a shame they couldn't land any clothing donations from the Shirty Shirt Co.
Mini Beef Helmet.
