I couldn’t be more excited for UConn taking on South Carolina in the 2009 Papa John’s Bowl. There are a number of reasons behind this.
1) Who is more deserving of a bowl game than UConn?
2) The Judge (my dad) called me this morning and told me to ‘pack my shit, we’re going to Dixie’ (well, not those exact words)
3. Last season, while I was still enjoying my playing days, we played at Louisville’s Papa John’s Stadium and at half time the Papa John’s daughters were there. The “Papa John’s Twins” as I have come to call them. As I noted back then, and I’ll repeat now, “Better ingredients, better offspring” Much to the lament of my girlfriend, I think there is something in tomato sauce. Come to the game, you’ll see.
