Bowl Picks

This week and the week following January 1st marks the end of football season for another year -- and it is so sad!

Since I have been at my in-laws this week, I have not seen as many bowl games as past years, but I did catch the Notre Dame v. Florida State and the Washington v. Baylor games last night and both were very exciting.

On Saturday, Chris and I will be celebrating the end of football season by attending the LIBERTY BOWL in Memphis, TN to watch the Vanderbilt Commodores CLOBBER Cincinnati.  We are so excited!  It is the 3rd time Vandy has been to a bowl game in the past 50 years (I went to their more recent bowl appearance 3 years ago and they won!  They're bowl appearance prior to the one 3 years ago was in 1956 (I think)).  Chris has never attended a College Bowl Game or even a College Football Game.  We are SO excited.

We have had a wonderful vacation and we'll be sucking the marrow out of these last few days of it.
