How I miss Poulan Weedeater

College bowl games used to have names. Now they have sponsors and naming rights and horrid mashups like this:

  • San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl - The picture of beauty, isn't it?
  • Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl - The 2-food-groups-in-one bowl
  • AutoZone Liberty Bowl - My car is my sovereign right bowl
  • Fedex Orange Bowl - Fedex orange, UPS brown bowl

God forbid bloggers should become sponsors:

How long until we see a Cotton Pajamas Media Bowl?

Only if they let Goldstein live-blog it. From his den.

One thing I leanred by growing up with an orange tree in the backyard: when they've turned brown, they're not good anymore.

Do any cereal makers sponsor college bowls? I think "Corn Flakes Bowl" or "Cheerios Bowl" would at least make sense.

BTW: I think you need a /ul tag after your list.

We have a Road Kill Cafe here. I doubt the have the funds, but I'm thinking they should sponsor the Gator Bowl-- "The Road Kill Cafe Gator Bowl".
