Random New Years Day Thoughts

I woke up this morning still thinking I would have the great conflict of day mingling minor around the house errands mixed in with football. After looking at the day's slate of games, not so much. Matt Hinton and Holly Anderson lament it as well here.

Vanderbilt got 8 first downs (going 1-15 on 3rd down conversions) and 16 points while beating BC for the Commodore's first bowl victory since 1955. Just win, baby.

Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics: the ESPN sports crawl yesterday informed me that Mike Shanahan was 1-4 in NFL playoff games since Elway retired. John Elway is 0-3 in Super Bowls when Terrell Davis isn't playing. Let's not underestimate the best #30 not named Steve Sewell.

My how times have changed: yesterday, we found out that while preparing for the Orange Bowl, the Cincy Bearcats moved out of their hotel to avoid Diddy's entourage and the New Year's Eve festivities. When I was in school, the artist formerly known as Prince would have moved out of the hotel to avoid the noise and entourage of the mid-80s Sooners.

Happy New Year to all.
