January 1, 2010 . . .
New Year’s Day 2010 brings us hope and blessings for a healthy, happy, prosperous year. Before we get to that, though, New Year’s Day brings us college football so “let’s go bowling” and get our predictions out there for the major college bowl games today and over the next week. I do not study these games that closely, so I’ll merely try to pick the outright winner and disregard the point spread. I hope you will jump in and “go bowling” as well.
Outback Bowl, Northwestern vs Auburn: LD picks Auburn
Capital One Bowl, Penn State vs LSU: LD picks LSU
Gator Bowl, West Virginia vs Florida State: LD picks West Virginia
Rose Bowl, Ohio State vs Oregon: LD picks Oregon
(why is Citigroup still sponsoring this game??)
Sugar Bowl, Florida vs Cincinnati: LD picks Florida
Fiesta Bowl, Texas Christian vs Boise State: LD picks TCU
Orange Bowl, Georgia Tech vs Iowa: LD picks Iowa
National Championship, Texas vs Alabama: LD picks the Alabama Crimson Tide . . . Roll Tide!!
One other sporting event of note is the NHL’s Winter Classic played outdoors today at America’s most beloved ballpark, Fenway Park, between the Big, Bad Boston Bruins and the Broad St. Bullies, otherwise known as the Philadelphia Flyers. The puck is dropped at 1pm, the gloves will likely be dropped shortly thereafter.
LD picks his hometown favorite Bruins in a donnybrook, 6-4!!
Enjoy the games.
