Bowl Game Gifts

I blogged about this last year, but the football bowl games are again giving very nice gift packages to all the players in their games. You can see the list here. The Cotton Bowl (where Nebraska will face Auburn on January 1, 2007) is giving a pretty good gift package, even for not being a BCS bowl game:
  • Fossil wrist watch
  • MP3 player
  • Camcorder
  • R+L Carriers (by the way, does anyone know what this is?)
You would think that the National Championship would give a great gift package, but the BCS Championship Game (Ohio State vs. Florida on January 8) is only giving a portable XM Satellite radio and a commemorative Tourneau wrist watch. Granted, Tourneau's web site advertises some watches that cost in excess of $10,000, so hopefully the watch is on the high end--otherwise, what were they playing for?

Worst gift package? The International Bowl (Cincinnati vs. Western Michigan on January 6):

  • Souvenir watch
  • Souvenir football for autographs
  • Leather club bag
Unfortunate year to be a Bearcat or a Bronco!

If anyone was curious, it does not appear that the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl will be giving copies of John Eldridge's Wild at Heart, as they did last year. Pity.

Labels: ,

Are they giving away free Chick-Fil-A? Mmmm.

Um, all I've ever seen R+L Carriers on is a semi, hauling mail. So perhaps each player gets his very own mail truck? Now that is thinking outside the box.
