Pick of the Day: Bowl Games

Pushed back a day because New Year’s Day fell on Sunday this year, and when it comes to football in the United States that’s the property of NFL Productions, the College Bowl season puts the hammer down with several big games featuring top ranked teams including the Rose, Fiesta, Ticket City, Capital One and Outback Bowls.

The big game, of course, goes next Monday night when #1 Louisiana Tigers meet the #2 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide in New Orleans in the BCS National Championship Game.

  1. We’re overdue for a PDog weather post. We’ve barely had winter yet and it’s already half over, which is pretty awesome for the prairies. Well above zero forecasts all week long. At most we’re looking at 2 months of real winter, so this begs a mention. Anybody complaining about cold this year is full of it!

  2. Plus 8 is the forecast high for Thursday in Regina. Heading into winter, I believe the forecast was for a somewhat cooler than normal winter. But so far it’s definitely been a breeze — outside of the freezing rain and the ice on sidewalks because of all the melting.

  3. It would certainly be nice to see some sand at the intersections. For those of us who drive, I mean.

  4. Oops. Sorry guys. I should add one thing to that last comment. In case someone decides to appropriate it for something other than … what did Greg call it again? Oh, right … critical discussion.


  5. Some might say “global warming” but I prefer Al Gore’s actually premise, “aberrant weather patterns”. We’re enjoying some seriously sweet aberrations lately. Last winter was deathly chill. This is one of the warmest most-inverted winters ever. Instead of 9 days of cold, 2 days of bearability, we’re getting 9 days warm, 2 days cold. You know, you’re living here too.

  6. #6 Indeed I do live here, Talbot — but I don’t get out much these days. I’m waiting for Whitworth to make the next move. He’s promised me a coffee, but I keep getting the brush off. How busy can he be? It’s just a tiny little magazine, and it’s not like he reads it very closely, anyway.

  7. Seeing how all of the other comments are off topic of the post, mine will be too.

    Winter started on Dec 22.
    .5 way is about Feb. 15th.

    #2 Do you take your video device outside to watch FBall?

  8. #8 Not usually, no. But I thought it might be appropriate today in honour of the Winter Classic.
