Shit just gor real for the NTTTBD -- the Cod has a skin in the game. Whimsical notions about foodstuffs and bowls become more concrete when your own sustenance hinges on a cabbie cussing in Creole making an illegal u-turn on A1A in front of a burger joint that has a 90 minute wait.
Which brings me to the biggest injustice of this bowl season. Due to the Medici-esque network of bowl alliances, the Clemson Tigers are in Hollywood, FL, getting ready for an Orange Bowl date against the West Virginia Mountaineers. Meanwhile, Virginia Tech, who lost to Clemson -- Twice. Lopsidedly. -- is scrimmaging in the neutral ground on Esplanade, preparing for a Sugar Bowl against one of the most storied programs in college football. One of many, many legit options for this game would be to go to Cochon Butcher. Meanwhile, not even Luther Campbell knows where to eat around Sun Life Stadium. Choke on that Gambino, Hokies and Wolverines.
