We have hangover-type feelings this morning that should not be chemically possible, given that the strongest substance we ingested during last night’s Big Damn New Orleans Bowl was pure, uncut Cheerwine. We blame this condition instead on football well and truly leaving our system — the glow of America’s beautiful game being leached away by an offseason that no longer looms, but has taken up residence in one corner of our office, smugly keeping us updated on the number of days until pitchers and catchers report.
We are obviously partial to the college game, and can remember no more than two Super Bowls that really held our attention before last night’s incarnation. But while we have no ties to either the Ravens or 49ers, we took a particular interest in XLVII thanks to the presence of several players we covered for years in Profiles in Profiteroles.
Give him this, Jacoby Jones made that D-II track scholarship count.—
