Tomorrow is New Years Day and a college football bonanza the likes of which you only see once a year. After you've had your morning coffee and you've watched the parade of floats go by, and after the rest of the country sees what ridiculously fantastic weather we have in SoCal, then the granddad of BCS games will finally get underway. With Penn State taking a shot against the almighty USC, it might as well be a championship game. The Trojans will be nine point favorites in this one, and it won't be an easy task to pull out a victory against the defensive minded Nittany Lions, much less win it by more than nine points! Of course now that I've said that, USC will probably romp it by 40 points. I have that effect in being all powerful and predicting things spectacularly in the wrong direction. If I say the Arizona Wildcats are going to get pummeled by the ASU Sun Devils by 20 points, and if you want to make some fast cash, bet the other way. In a word...I stink at picking winners. But hey, I don't roll the dice worth a damn either. That's why you won't see me at Vegas unless I'm going to the pool at the Palms, or going to see the Blue Man Group. Back to football...all we can say moving forward into a happy and (hopefully) more prosperous 2009 is sit back and enjoy every moment of these fantastic games tomorrow, my friends. It's going to be a dandy for certain. My hammy is already sore in anticipation, and I'm only running from the couch to my Personalized Cooler!
