All I Want For Christmas Are Some Sugar Bowl Tickets

I have always been an Arkansas fan, but I have never loved the Razorbacks more than I did last Friday. In case you were stuck in a hole, or don't follow the BCS as closely as I do, unranked Arkansas beat number 1 LSU thereby ending all championship hopes for the Tigers. I am always a sucker for the underdog, but that loss, along with the Kansas loss, shot West Virginia right on up to number two in the rankings. If the Mountaineers don't shoot themselves in the ass with penalties and turnovers on Saturday against our archrival Pitt, then they're heading to New Orleans for the National Championship game.

I have been online for two days trying to secure some tickets and can you believe they're already sold out? A bowl bid hasn't even been extended and the tickets are already gone. Sucks. I'm sure hoping Santa has a few tricks up his sleeve because it would sure be a shame to have to sit out in the parking lot in the cold in January with three little children.

We're still holding out that Ohio State will see you there! ;) You have an awesome team this year.

Sorry about that. After the SEC Championship I had a feeling things might get shuffled.

Memphis is playing in New Orleans, though! It's the "New Orleans Bowl," but it's in the SAME BUILDING. Awesome.
