Happy Holiday (Bowl)
I'm heading off in about a half-hour to drive down to San Diego to watch the beloved Northwestern play the despised and hated Utah in the Holiday Bowl.
The game is schedule to start at 4 PM, which you can all watch on Fox Sports, though don't worry there won't be a test. We're getting there early, however, because we also reserved a spot at the N Zone Tailgate Party beforehand. Packed with fun and frivolity, no doubt, but also food. The important Three F's.
Though we plan to drive back after the game (yes, I know, a busy, long day, but spending New Year's Eve in a San Diego hotel is really not my idea of the way to fly), I don't expect to be writing anything else for the rest of the day -- but not to worry, I've scheduled something that's already written to auto-post in the early afternoon for New Year's Eve.. And we'll be back here on the site tomorrow. So, have a wonderful New Year and a very Happy Holiday...Bowl.

I wondered if you went, once the rain started. I hope your seats were under cover and out of the wind. I know from more than one April Padre game how miserable that stadium can be in a rainstorm.

As you may have seen from my subsequent note on the day, no, we were NOT under cover. Though the wind wasn't too bad at all. (I'm from Chicago, remember...) By the second half, though, enough people left that we just moved back about five rowed and were under the deck at that point.
