 Is this a lively agave worm at the bottom of a new-age Tequila bottle? 

There are 34 Bowl games on your schedule between now and into the weeks following our armageddon-like fall off the fiscal cliff. 

This is the supreme season for the couch potato.

There are a bowl-full of bowls, NFL Playoff games, NBA and College hoops are in full swing, and the NHL...Oops, scratch that (Go Bulls!). 

The country will scan five bowl games on December 29th including the beauty by the bay, when the Naval Academy Midshipmen take on the Arizona State University Sun Devils in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl at AT&T. 

Incidentally, my thoughts on the uproar of “UC's logogate” is that the graphic guru who created the new age mark might have had some help.

To me it resembled a lively agave worm at the bottom of a new-age Tequila bottle. I'm surprised that Cal students failed to recognize it. Speaking of new logos and bowl games, have you seen the ASU Sun Devils new look for its sports teams? I would think that every Maserati owner who is a ASU alum is exceeding the speed limit with a big smile on their face.

Back to food and football.

The organizers of the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl do a great job of connecting with the community and helping people with a first class operation. I scanned the pigskin party schedule that will add several hundred tons of unwanted midsections to Americans over the next few weeks, and it’s impressive. The BCS National Championship on January 7th will signal everyone back to a treadmill.

I discovered that you’ll never go hungry if you watch the following games:

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
Beef O’Brady Bowl
Little Caesars Pizza Bowl
Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl
Chick-fil-A-Bowl
Gator Bowl (tastes like Chicken)
Outback Bowl (Have a big Bloomin' Onion)
Orange Bowl
Sugar Bowl

I’m pretty sure that this group of college football festivities covers the five major food groups. I hear that Jenny Craig is in negotiations with the NCAA to see if she can get in on the action for next year's bowl season.

Enjoy and please mix in a salad every few games.
