Cotton Bowl Thread: LSU vs. Texas A&M, 5p

Cotton is not just a soft, fluffy staple fiber spun into yarn and thread used to make a soft, breathable fiber. It is the fabric of our lives. Not family relationships, not hand-written letters, not late-night telephone calls to a loved one. Cotton. It's the future (besides plastics, of course). Just ask Leona Lewis or Colbie Caillat.

Oh yeah, and there's a football bowl game tonight.

Do I have permission to go home yet?

rbnlaw said...

Leave, dammit!

Mr. Customer said...

That's all the validation I need. See y'all after I consult with the liquor cabinet

how is there not a FCS Championship thread? Where is DD to crow about his Hens? Did he go to the game?

Fred's Brim said...

Blue Female Chickens up 12-0 nearing halftime

Fred's Brim said...

KC Keeler looks a lot like former Hen Rich Gannon

Dusty Baker said...

Heh...John Stankey. What a stooopid name.

Could never say "Go LSU!" but I will say "Go SEC!"

Fred's Brim said...

eff those swampass hillbillies!

Dusty Baker said...

Without doubt, most classless fans in college football are LSU fans. Eff those bayou inbreeds.

Dusty Baker said...

Aggies took it right to LSU already. 7-0 agri kids.

Fred's Brim said...

Interesting. I've never been near an LSU game. If Maryland had football fans, I would say it was them, but luckily they don't

Fred's Brim said...

Pat Ewing looks like a muppet in his old age

Fred's Brim said...

nice run by the agricultural and mechanical QB

Fred's Brim said...

that advertising wall is way to close to the field, unless this is an arena game

Dusty Baker said...

I was thinking the same thing, FB. It's like a Mexican junior varsity soccer field with that advertising banner wrap.

@ Freddie B re:Pat Ewing

Are you sure it wasn't Weezie Jefferson?

Dusty Baker said...

This is like an NBA game - no defense.

Fred's Brim said...

wait - the cotton bowl is not in the cotton bowl?

Dusty Baker said...

where is the orange bowl played these days?

Fred's Brim said...

Joe Robbie?

BOWLS ARE STUPID

Fred's Brim said...

The Knicks aren't half bad this year

They are 40% bad

Fred's Brim said...

I think Raymond Felton found Mark Jackson's candy stash in the MSG locker room.

Fred's Brim said...

Phoenix is a great place for Vince Carter to half-ass his way through the last of his career

Fred's Brim said...

Wow Phoenix is terrible. Nash and Hill don't deserve this

Dusty Baker said...

SEC moves to 4-4. Still have Kentucky and Auburn to go.

rbnlaw said...

Anyone else remember when the Cotton Bowl was worth a shit?

Me neither.

rbnlaw said...

New Year's Day circa 1990:
Morning: Parade, Gator Bowl
Late morning: Cotton Bowl
Afternoon: Rose Bowl
Late afternoon: Sugar Bowl
Night: Orange Bowl

I'm pretty sure the Fiesta was in there somewhere. I get the money and shit, but jeebus, the Cotton Bowl 6 days after New Year's? No thanks.

Spank said...

I believe the Fiesta Bowl was between the Rose and Azucar(Sugar) Bowls.

Anyways, Can I get a Gig 'em Aggies!

Spank said...

^?...!

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, RBN. Exactly.and we all sat around and watched every ounce of all that as a ritual. Now it's so disparate and fragmented that none of those events or games makes as much as it once did. Can the money men not count?

For anyone who has an iPad, be sure to check out CBS Sports' Pro Football app. Well done and handy coming into the playoffs.

Hey there's a shitty bowl coming on in a minute! BBVA Bowl or some such. Don't know what it stands for but I keep trying to make it an acronym for Bel Biv Devoe.

There's a lesson here: if you are a company trying to sell a product or service that no one knows about yet, don't use an acronym that nobody can understand or remember. Cause I have no idea what I'm supposed to be buying but I sure know I want to download some Bel Biv Devoe.
