The most wonderful time of the year

Yep, it's that time of year again. Bowl season. The most wonderful time of the year.

Every time you hear that song, doesn't it instantly remind you of the ESPN Capital One Bowl week commercials?

Not sure how this will go, but we're in the planning stages for a bowl preview with some in-depth analysis from Jimmy (and hopefully some commentary from his dad) and a little "Gambler's guide to bowl season" from Matt and Doug. Hopefully there will be some spirited debates and decent commentary to get you all geared up for bowl season.

On a side note, bowl season is right up there with March Madness as the best gambling time of the year as far as I'm concerned. You got games virtually every night, some decent tune up games before you get to the heavy hitters later in the month and into next month, and the potential for some great parlays on the days with multiple bowl games. Great month all around if you like to make an occasional wager on a sporting event. I know everybody loves filling out March Madness brackets and those opening weekend parlays, but bowl season isn't too shabby either.

It's not officially the holiday season until Bowl Week gets under way. Just to make things interesting, i'll be wagering on every single game through my perfectly legal online offshore account and keeping updated on my progress. If I feel like it's a lock (let's say, Auburn over Wisconsin, for example), i'll be upping the ante. If it's a toss up and i'm not liking the points i might just make a meager wager. But with every bowl game money will be won or lost. Unless the $164.70 in my account evaporates before January 4th. But don't count on that!
