The Popeye's Bahamas' Bowl was the game I was talking about last week. I may watch it because Old Dominion is just a few miles from my house and the region is somewhat excited about the team. The moved up to whatever the hell Div I is now called a few years ago and have been decent. Not anything close to Power 5, but they gave Pitt a scare a few years ago.

Anyway, they accepted to bid to this the week before the conference championship games because they had to get equipment shipped to the stadium and passports for the team processed. An article in the Virginia Pilot said that the school is making less than $5K after all is said an done, and that is only because the conference helps to subsidize the teams bowl trips...

Well, that's better than Colorado State's bottom line for the Potato Bowl. They budgeted $650K for the trip. Their conference will only reimburse them up to $525K in bowl expenses. They hoped to make up the difference though sales of their allotted tickets, but they sold just 445. So unless they sold them for $300 a piece, which seems unlikely, they're not going to make a nickel.

You forgot to deduct the value of a year's supply of free potatoes. Only if they win.
Yeah, well...you know...that's just like, uh, your opinion, man.

I actually love Idaho Potatoes. You can have all the others. My wife made a quiche the other night and I made some of my World Famous Home Fries, sauteed to golden/brown perfection in extra virgin olive oil and fresh garlic.

Mrs psu_dad: How come everything you make is World Famous?
Me: It just is.
