Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl Thread

Louisville vs. Southern Miss, 5p.

When the BCS fatcats tell you that the collegiate bowl season is critical to the fabric of college football, and necessary to keep college athletes and their fans invested in the drama and spectacle of the college football season, you need only to point at the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl as a counter-argument.

For those of you who don't know Beef 'O' Brady's, the superfluously apostrophed restaurant chain (with unnecessarily animated "locations" map over on the left hand side of its website!) is a 25-year old chain of franchised Irish pub-themed family-friendly restaurants. What is a family-friendly Irish pub, you ask? Try, one that doesn't serve hard alcohol.

Isn't that sort of like a soy-patty burger? What's the point?

According to their store locator, there are no locations within 250 miles of Los Angeles, which is unfortunate since I'm dying to try the Super Sampler: 10 mini corn dogs, 4 loaded potato skins with sour cream, 4 chicken fingers, a full order of crispy chips with queso dip and salsa served with honey mustard and BBQ sauce for dipping (no substitutions, please).

Anyway, the most redeeming thing I could find about this game was the fact that, according to ESPN the Rag (Dec 27 2010 issue), the players' swag bag includes Oakley Fuel Cell sunglasses and a Xbox 360. If any of you Louisville or Southern Miss players want to try and take me on in CoD:MW2 (I'm at level 66 now), just leave me a message in the thread with your gamertag. In fact, I'll probably be playing at around 5pm today. I assume you'll be busy.

Back to the game at hand, however. After the clamor demanding last Saturday's bowl thread, I'll keep putting these bowl threads up if you guys want 'em. I'm there for you. (Even if Beef 'O' Brady's isn't.)

Flew into Tampa today for holidays. Stopped at International Plaza (a mall) for lunch. Whole USM team at mall hours before kick (not sure what they were doing but all the busses were there). They can't be focused.

Plus, I got my PhD from the Ville so go Cards.

That's some really painful architecture goin' all up on that Beef 'O' Brady's. And can someone explain what the first apostrophe is doing there?

Spanky said...

All I can say is everyone seems to be having one hell of a time. Must have scored a free classic starter. Bring on the nuclear wings. IMPLODE THIS HEATHEN!

Sorry missed the scintillating BOBBT tonight. Long night at work followed by a long night with the fam at the local MEX cantina.

Barely crawling to the end game of this work year.

Long conversation at the bar re WTF Beef 'O' Brady's actually was. I termed it "an Irish Applebee's".

And Kobe gets kicked out of the game as I write. Followed by his retarded finger.

Dusty Baker said...

Is there a bowl game tomorrow night? Because, er, I don't really have anything else to do. Unless Mr. C is taking me out for drinks.

Dusty Baker said...

Lakers went out like lil bishes tonight. Embarrassing.

Spanky said...

The Lakers better bring it on Christmas Day. If not,I'm fucking shit up.

Can't wait! Someone's gonna put their dick in the mashed potatoes for sure.

Spanky said...

I'm sponsoring the "Rotten Bastard Bowl" next year.

Spanky said...

@ Dusty

We don't do mashed for x-mas. But I think the chicken mole is a nice substitute.

Dusty Baker said...

Beer 'O' Bastard's Bowl!

Dusty Baker said...

I would never disrespect a mole like that.
