The best hangover cure is college football

If unlike like me, you are still be feeling the effects of last night’s reverie and cheap champagne this morning, step up your drinking game, kiddies. Right before bed take two Advil, chug a Pedialyte, and get some greasy food in your system when you wake up and you’re ready to take on the world. That may not help you now, though. Once an egg is laid, it’s hard to deposit it back in the chicken. As such, you may be hurting. And there’s nothing better for pain than all day football.

Long gone are the days of a dozen bowl games on New Years Day, but I guess an argument could be made that what we lack in quantity we make up for in quality. There’s five games going, the first of which kicks off at noon, and almost all feature blue blood programs and each have considerable storylines. Sure, the lion’s shares of eyes and attention are on the semifinals and the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Georgia Bulldogs, the Oklahoma Sooners, and the Clemson Tigers. But the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are fighting to save their season’s feel, the Michigan Wolverines are trying to put a bow on a stellar B1G bowl season, the UCF Knights are fighting the good fight for all the little guys out there, and the LSU Tigers, the South Carolina Gamecocks, and the Auburn Tigers are hoping to right the Titanic-esque SEC bowl season. So yeah, there’s a lot of action worth watching.
