    Oh that sounds AWESOME! Georgia is playing so we’ll be watching from home.

    I have been to one bowl game- the Chick-for-A Peach Bowl- and it was a ton of fun.

    I've performed at a half time show when I was in colorguard. We didn't get to watch any of the game before half time. We did get to watch the last half and it rained most of the time.

    Never been to the Rose Bowl but I did attend the 1971 Tangerine Bowl in Orlando. My cousin was a player on the Toledo Rockets football team. Our grandmother died the day after Thanksgiving so some of the family decided to head south for our first Christmas without her. The Toledo team that played (and won) that year ended up with a 35-0 record over 3 seasons which is still the #2 longest winning streak in the modern football age (#5 if you count teams from over 100 years ago).

    On a side note, that was the year WDW opened. We spent the 26th at WDW and went to the bowl game on the 28th.

    I'm sure bowl games today are a much different experience than they were 46 years ago but it was still a bowl game :)
