Yes, that is real. And it is NOT spectacular.
Just when we thought Boise couldn't get any worse, they go and do something like this and totally redeem themselves! Although I'm not sure it gets much worse than the Poulan Weedeater Bowl, this re-branding of the old Humanitarian Bowl played on the blue turf is certainly a close second. Fun fact! The new bowl will feature teams from the WAC and the MAC which not only means that with Boise moving to the MWC and being unavailable for selection this game will sell literally 50 tickets each year, but that with New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas all featuring teams from those Conferences, four of the top five potato consuming states will be represented. So congratulations, Texas, we are officially fucking FAT! I'll be honest - the renaming kind of makes me nostalgic for Lee Corso because can't you just see him seizing his way through "THAT MUSTA BEENA HOT POTATA!!" references on Gameday highlights whenever a receiver dropped a pass? Memories...
Also, in what would be considered "dark comedy" along the lines of Louis CK, comes this from our friends in Alabama. Basically the setup is this: Alabama has lots of deadbeats who do not pay their child support, so in order to lock them up the police have to go to comically absurd lengths. And what better way to reach bottom of the barrel class evaders from one of the most undereducated states in the country? Why, college football, of course! Just watch the video, I fear I've said too much already:
This just in: People do not like having their hearts toyed with in such a cruel manner. Also, cops are kinda dicks.
