Finally! After a seemingly endless marathon of dozens of college football bowl games, our long wait is almost over. After weeks of excited anticipation and breathless buildup, we arrive at last at the threshold of the one game — the only game — that really matters:
Kent State vs. Arkansas State in Sunday’s GoDaddy.com Bowl!
Oh, you thought I meant Notre Dame vs. Alabama? Come to think of it, the No. 1 Fighting Irish and No. 2 Crimson Tide playing in the BCS National Championship Game at Dolphins stadium on Monday night could be a fairly good game, too.
I just hope it doesn’t prove anticlimactic and get overshadowed by the penultimate bowl as the Golden Flashes and Red Wolves clash at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile.
That reminds me. Alabama coach Nick Saban played at Kent State in the early 1970s. Wonder if he’ll watch his alma mater play Sunday night or accompany his team as it watches a private screening of Zero Dark Thirty.
Saban, of course, is despised by Miami Dolphins fans for lying before he left for Alabama, and Notre Dame is despised by Miami Hurricanes fans.
That sound you hear Monday night will be Irish and Tide fans cheering for their team, and South Floridians angrily booing both on general principle.Rex Ryan Mark Sanchez
LeBron explained the Heat’s well-documented rebounding woes by simply saying the team doesn’t have the “knack.” (Your punch line goes here and must include the word “Sharona.”)Amare Stoudemire Reggie Johnson Goikoetxea Lance Armstrong Buster Olney Barry Bonds Roger Clemens
