Top 10 Most Ridiculous Bowl Names

As bowl season approaches, it's always a joy to make fun of the incredibly ludicrous sponsors that cram their name in front of the bowl's actual name. And with a whopping 35 bowl games this year, narrowing it down to ten was not easy...(for the sake of suspense let's list these in descending order):

10. San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl -- San Diego State vs. Navy. I mean people...that's just too many words. Perhaps we can take out the "Credit Union" portion to shorten it a bit.

9. Little Ceaser's Bowl -- That's it...no bowl name. They just said "screw it, we'll just name the bowl after the actual sponsor." And it's a classic Big Ten vs. MAC matchup (TBD).

8. Military Bowl Presented by Northrop Grumman -- Sounds Bad A$$ enough until you realize that it's East Carolina vs. an ACC team TBA. Jeez.

7. New Era Pinstripe Bowl -- The "Pinstripe" is a cutesy way of saying it takes place in Yankee Stadium. It's also a sign that I don't need to watch...Syracuse vs. Big 12 TBA.

6. Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl -- This does NOT sound Bad A$$ and reeks of a student/teacher flag football game. Usually a good game though as it's Big 12 vs. Pac-10.

5. uDrove Humanitarian Bowl -- Yes, the "u" is lower case and I don't really care to look up what "uDrove" is. Takes place on the blue turf at Boise and is totally unwatchable. MAC vs. WAC

4. GoDaddy.com Bowl -- If you want to see what Danica Patrick looks like in a tight GoDaddy leather outfit, then this is going to be great television. "GOOO DADDY". MAC vs. Sun Belt.

3. Beef 'O' Brady's St. Petersburg Bowl -- Just too many apostrophes for me. Plus it's Southern Miss vs. Big East TBA.

2. BBVA Compass Bowl -- ???????? It's called that because you need a compass to find the location of the actual game....Birmingham to be exact. Big East vs. SEC. (side note: I remember about two weeks ago there was a rumor that UGA might play in this against Rutgers or somebody like that....give me the Liberty Bowl BABY!)

And....drum roll please....

1. Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl -- Pac-10 vs. WAC. I don't know what's more ridiculous...the name of the bowl or the fact that it takes place on January 9th. Can you imagine? With only two games left in the entire college football season we get the NC on Jan. 10th, and...and...something like Arizona State vs. Fresno State the day before. Excuse me...I have to go vomit now.
