That Buenos Aires thing sounds pretty good. It's summer time down there now so there would be beautiful senoritas in their bikinis in the stands. Who needs Vandy fans anyway? I wonder why the NFL hasn't thought of this yet?

.....and ESPN could probably get the "rights" cheaper than here; that's the point and who needs fans in the stands, anyway? These bowls are all about low cost air time for the networks. The cost for producing a bowl game is probably less than one Hallmark, one-hour soap. But don't forget: coaches get another month of practice. Players get a nice, but not above the NCAA allowed price, toiletry kit.
