Motor City Madness!
It's everybody's favorite day of the year: Motor City Bowl Day! "But why should I care about the Motor City Bowl?" you ask. Well, I could tell you, but I'd rather sing why. Not really, actually, I'll just do a list.
|1. The Motor City Bowl takes place on Boxing Day.|
And as fate would have it, Akron's mascot is some kind of kangaroo thing. Kangaroos box. Advantage: Akron
|2. Akron is the alma mater of the second-best current starting quarterback to matriculate from the MACC|
That's right, Cleveland's Charlie Frye is a closet Zipper. Those MACC-ophiles out there must have been really good this year, cause Santa dished out a double-dipping of hot MACC action for Christmas weekend. Hot off the heels of Frye's dominating performance on Saturday, Zippy straps it back on for some rowdy good times in D-town. Represent.
|3. The Motor City Bowl is in Ford Field, home of Super Bowl XL!|
If you squint your eyes, you can pretend you're at the Super Bowl. Also, Eminem is from Detroit. Also, Detroit sucks.
|4. Memphis has a stud tailback named DeAngelo Williams|
And, if you're like me, you just recently watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, which stars none other than the lovely and talented Beverly D'Angelo. Advantage: Memphis
Need I go on? So, tune in! Memphis just took a 10-3 lead.
