If I were a college football player, I’d look forward to bowl season for the trip and you know playing football and stuff, but more than that: WE GET GIFTS. Now, sure, not all of the things that bowl games hand out each year are great, but those things can be re-gifted. We’re killin’ multiple birds with one stone here, people!
Via Sports Business Daily, here is what NC State and Texas A&M players will be receiving from the Gator Bowl: a Fossil Watch, Maui Jim sunglasses, an Amazon Echo, ISlides, a SIC tumbler, and a dopp kit. (I dunno if I should be embarrassed or not that I had to google dopp kit—I had never heard the term before. I usually just call it the bag where the bathroom stuff goes.)
I don’t know how the Gator Bowl people expect the players to slay their taxes without a complimentary copy of QuickBooks, by the way. I bet the kids will be devastated at this omission. Heartbroken, even. They at least could have thrown in a top-of-the-line calculator.
