I was all set to write a fairly lengthy diatribe about how ESPN/ABC\’s use of The Rose Bowl Game was hurting my brain with its redundancy, when it occurred to me:
I wrote about this last year, which means that it\’s even more inexcusable that this travesty has continued for another year. Listen to me closely: all college football bowls are games. And what\’s worse, is that none of the other games have \’game\’ appended to their names. Not the Independence Bowl, not the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, not the Sugar Bowl, not even the Dr. Jerry Punch Bowl. Why must you make such a mockery of the grand daddy? I can\’t believe Keith Jackson hasn\’t started a protest over this.
So stop it. Just stop. We don\’t want anyone to get hurt here, especially me. Because I may have a hernia if I see another commercial for this thing.
