Ridiculously Fabricated Bowl Names, Year 2

Share This Post


Let’s just put this out there right off the bat – college football bowl games have stupid ass names. I hate the idea of a corporation/organization or any sort of sponsor having the right to name what is supposed to be a “championship” clash between two teams. I mean, come on – these awesome gigantic trophies are ruined every year by Dr. Pepper, Popeye’s, or Zaxby’s logos.

I’m looking right at you, Fiesta Bowl – WTF is a BattleFrog to begin with? Why are Ohio State and Notre Dame competing in a BattleFrog Fiesta? I’m not sure how this works.

And, why not throw the GoDaddy Bowl into the fray? You dumbasses plastered GoDaddy logos all over the field…and that’s a stupid logo to begin with.

The freaking giant bowl of potatoes given out to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl is great because, even though it’s just a huge crystal bowl full of legit potatoes, it isn’t overly emblazoned with a stupid logo.

I’m just waiting for the KFC Finger Lickin’ Bowl to award a giant silver bust of Col. Sanders to a team.

As I’m sure you can tell, this is a great source of angst for me each and every college football season. I just wish these programs would take notes from the Sugar Bowl. That is a beautiful, classic trophy.

Thankfully, Stephen Carter joined me in making fun of the absurd traditions set forth by the likes of the Poulan Weedwacker Bowl (or whatever it was called). We’re bringing back our annual list of ridiculously fabricated bowl names.

Be warned – what follows is literally just a list of bowl names that Stephen and I made up off the top of our heads. Some are likely offensive to you. Anyway, onto to the list:

WOW – Stephen really brought the heat this year. That’s a solid 29 bowl games. We need to start finding teams to play in these fake games.

While fun, this list did come with its trials and tribulations – for example, where do you draw the line when publishing something one might deem offensive? Our moral dilemma was demonstrated in this conversation:

Stoney: The Hickory 8 Hatchet Bowl….maybe I shouldn’t use that one.
Stephen: Hahahaha – the local crowd will love it, but honestly…I mean…I was working on a couple based on shootings….and I settled on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

See! We weren’t completely heartless. We did, however, find ourselves dealing with multiple distractions while attempting to get this list together thanks to our boy R-Hog:

Stoney: R-Hog just dumped coffee everywhere.
Stephen: YES! Where is it?
Stoney: All over him and the floor.

Anyway, I’m sure you’d like to get back to your regularly scheduled day now. Enjoy all the stupid bowl games.
