We had a full day of college football to watch on New Year's Day. We had the Rose Bowl Tourniment of Roses Parade to watch. And to those who overdid their drinking on New Year's Eve, we had a day to recover. It was a nice day for sledding in the park. Did you notice that the Orange Bowl had a minor college team (Northern Illinois) to face the Seminoles of Florida State. They played a excellent game even though their talent was a little thin at times. The Rose Bowl was an excellent game. Both coaches planned a very clean and tough game. The best team won, and Wisconsin lost to Stanford. Kudos to both coaches for keeping the field calm without any rough penalties or fights. Michigan almost won against South Carolina in a very close contest. These games are the ones that I watched and enjoyed. I hope that everyone had a happy new year.
