Sheraton Hawai'i Bowl on Christmas Eve?
Nah. No cable where I'm going.

The Blue-Gray Game?
Cancelled. Because of lack of interest.

Lakers vs. Heat?
It's a holiday tradition according to ABC. I'm not buying that.

Just hanging out with family in Michigan?
A much better idea.

Back to work on Tuesday.

Bob, Merry XMAS and thanks for all the hard work you put in to the Griddle this year. And most importantly, good luck with the gift exchange program with your g-friend. Personally, I think it's a test and am advising you to have a backup plan. :)

Merry Christmas, Bob. Maybe 2007 will be the year you Griddle your review of R.V. Well, here's hoping.

Wow, was the Blue-Gray (finally) actually canceled? That was long overdue. Let's hope the NFL Pro Bowl is next.

Lakers vs. Heat has less luster without Shaq, though Shaq vs. Kobe has lost most of its luster as well. I doubt this game will be a "holiday tradition" for much longer.

D4P, hush your mouth! We like the Pro Bowl out here and so does the NFL. Guaranteed sellout, lots of revenue for the city/state, and few players opt out of a trip to Hawai'i. I think their families won't let them.

Merry Christmas to all.

Bob, you spoil us. You really, really spoil us.

Please pass the same comment along to the rest of the BT staff and enjoy your trip.

For Bob's edification:

Hawai'i 41, ASU 24

Brennan threw for five TDs in the second half, breaking David Klingler's record for touchdowns in one season. He had 559 passing yards for the game.

"Brennan finished the season with 5,549 yards to become just the third quarterback in college history with 5,000 yards and 50 TDs in a season, joining Klingler and Texas Tech's B.J. Symons."

And he's a junior who's right now making noises about coming back.

United left me a two hour window to make my connection from Chicago to LAX. This is I believe 115 minutes too many. I was upgraded to first class for the demanding thirty minute flight from Grand Rapids to Chicago. I spent much of it asleep.
