Throwing it around

Big bowl game tonight. Sugar Bowl: Ohio State vs. Arkansas. I’ve about had it with bowl season by the time this week rolls around. The holiday season is over. I’ve had to go back to work. Tomorrow I have to work. I’m just over it. I’m ready for college football to take a long nap and to get to spring training and checking scores of the Cactus and Grapefruit leagues. But we wait just a bit longer.
