For the next 12 days, Card Chronicle is partnering with the Galt House so that you guys can get some free stuff that'll help you get into the holiday spirit.
Pretty much all you have to here is submit a picture of yourself attending any one of the "Christmas at the Galt House" events, and you'll be featured on the site and win free tickets to Kalightoscope or the hotel's Pam Tillis Dinner Show.
The first day is tomorrow and the "World's Largest Elf Gathering," where the world record for most people dressed as elves is expected to be shattered. In order to break the record, there must be at least 1,762 elves dressed in a red and green with pointy ears and an elf hat. If you're attending and do not have pointy ears and an elf hat, they will be provided. Participants will also receive free parking and admission to Kalightoscope.
If you can't make it, the event is going to be live-streamed on the Courier-Journal.

I got a few complaints today about the lack of "Monday Morning Crean" like we used to have in the days leading up to the old Marquette games, so I'll make up for it with some evening Crean....which sounds so, so awful.

8. Belk Bowl (Dec. 30, Charlotte, N.C.)
Georgia vs. Louisville
This is an upgrade over last year's matchup of Cincinnati and North Carolina. But the reason we have this ranked so high is because it pits Georgia against former defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, who left to become Louisville's defensive coordinator. Grantham is very familiar with Georgia's offense. Will the Cardinals be able to contain RB Nick Chubb?
ESPN goes a step further and puts the Belk Bowl at No. 7.
7. Belk Bowl
No. 13 Georgia vs. No. 21 Louisville
6:30 p.m. ET, Dec. 31 (ESPN)
Welcome to the Todd Grantham Bowl. Grantham, the Cardinals' defensive coordinator, bolted Georgia after the 2013 season and didn't exactly leave on the best of terms. He'll try to help the Cardinals shut down UGA's high-powered rushing attack. Plus, Louisville can get an early start on scouting any Georgia players that might be dismissed from the team next summer.
