Remember when it was just called the Sugar Bowl?

The names of college bowl games seem to be getting more and more ridiculous each year. I'd like to offer a few suggestions to make it even worse:

* Cialis Up For Anything Bowl

* Nicorette Twitch Bowl

* The Pottery Barn If This Was Really One of Our Bowls You'd Never Be Able To Afford It Bowl

* The UPS Our Packages Are Huge If You Know What We Mean Bowl

* Xanax So Mellow We Wet Ourselves Constantly Bowl

* McDonalds McGriddles Are Totally Worth the Coronary Bowl

* The Wild Turkey Gobble Gobble Ha Ha Ha I'm So Drunk I'm Just Going To Lay Here a Second Bowl

* The Gas X Bloat Our Way To Victory Bowl

* The Norwegian Cruise Line Guess Our Staph Infection Bowl

* The Google Can You Believe Our Stock Is Over 700 Dollars a Share We're So Rich Our Blood Is Made of Unicorns Bowl

Happy New Year, Liz!

Yeah, the sponsorship has gotten a bit silly. But do you recall these REAL college bowls:

Astro Bluebonnet Bowl
Bacardi Bowl
Boot Hill Bowl
Cigar Bowl
Oil Bowl
Pineapple Bowl
Refrigerator Bowl
Salad Bowl

Sometimes it's hard to separate the parody from the reality!

Hey...I think it's about time. I spent most of my life trying to figure out what one would do with a "Cotton Bowl". (wouldn't it leak?)

L-D's D

Hmmmm...wouldn't break.

Happy New Year to you, Shan! And thank you for the real college bowl list. I had no idea there was a Refrigerator Bowl. Honestly, I would have watched more college football if I'd known I was missing stuff like that!

Hi LD's D -- I think there would be problems ingesting tufts of cotton, too, wouldn't there? But you're right, you could drop that thing all day long!

I've always thought the worst two teams should play in the:
Toilet Duck Toilet Bowl

I think that's a brilliant idea. Who can we call?
