Elementary Essay

What does Happy New Year mean to me? Football!

Outback Bowl, Chik-Fil-A Bowl, and the Sugar Bowl!

From sun-up to sundown it's wall to wall football. The ceiling fan will be on to keep the tv cooled off. Of course, Pork Roast, black-eyed peas, turnip greens, and cornbread will be filling up the kitchen island so plates can be loaded up at halftime. But the food is not the centerpiece of this day. With alumni from Florida State, Auburn, Georgia, Colorado, USF, and Ohio State coming in and out for visits, we have to be equal opportunity fans. We're ready to good naturedly cheer for everyone's favorite team. New Years Day is college football's day . A colorful, exciting, heart-pounding day. Go 'Noles, War Eagle, Go Dawgs, Go Buffs, Go Bulls, Buckeye pride!!!!!

Wish I could join you for that menu...pork roast and cornbread, yum! We've got a Honeybaked ham in the fridge for game day.

Here in CA we are rooting for daughter's school -- USC -- in the Rose Bowl!

Happy New Year!

Best wishes,
