Thursday, December 20, 2018 – The Daily Bowl Game
Tonight on ESPN at 7:00 pm the bowls featuring the smaller universities continue in the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl. What is a gasparilla? I am assuming you know what a bad boy is and what a mower is.
Gasparilla is inspired by the Legend of Pirate Jose Gaspar, Ye Mystic Krew of Gasparilla is dedicated to enriching the vitality and imagination of Tampa Bay.
If you look at the pictures from the link, you see people dressed as pirates, toasting with adult looking beverages and very crowded on the decks of boats. It somewhat resembles Last Splash on Lake Travis at Hippie Hollow.
If you have ever spent any time in Florida or read any of Carl Hiassen’s hilarious mysteries set in Florida, you would realize Florida doesn’t need much to enrich its imagination. It is already fruitcakes because the Cosmic bakers took the people there out of the oven too soon. So says, the great 20th Century philosopher, Jimmy Buffet. Happy Birthday Jimmy. Any parrot head knows his birthday is December 25.
Anyway, enjoy watching the Thundering Herd of Marshall and South Florida Bulls. Perhaps it will be a thundering herd of bulls in freshly mowed grass.
It might prove to be two equally matched teams in a game that benefits the culture and community of Tampa. But still it is not the Sugar Bowl – is it, Charlie? (RL, may be the only one who catches the last sentence.)
No Snarky Friday tomorrow because I am trying not to be naughty before Santa arrives. But I will be posting the Christmas game I developed. Stay tuned.
