The Tom Bowl
Tom Bowl Museum: Past Game
University of Southern California Trojans 0
University of Louisiana Tigers 0
Unfortunately the battle to
determine the true national championship ended in a scoreless tie as
both teams failed to show for the most demanded Tom Bowl in its 15 year
history. Upon arrival at Frank A. Schafer field the gate was kind of
frozen shut and it took some doing to get it open leading to speculation
that perhaps the Trojans and Tigers had tried and only succeeded in
loosening the gate before giving up and heading to wherever they may
have headed to play the game. The Tom Bowl was very excited to have its first
"off-the-street" attendees that weren't Canadian Geese as the daughter of Frank A Schafer and two of her grandchildren
attended the game allowing the Tom Bowl to set a new attendance
record. Attendance: 14
The Tom Bowl received a response
from the Pac-10 Conference about this game.
The Tom Bowl President with the Tom Bowl's
first "off-the-street" attendees. When we say,
"off-the-street" we mean, they came to the game
completely on their own.
The iced up gate that may have thwarted USC
Two fans look for evidence that the teams may have
been there. The search was inconclusive. There wasn't
anything to indicate they hadn't been there.

This year the Tom Bowl is truly legit. We've never had the undisputed #1
team, we've always had the debate be over #2 which we think is pretty good.
This was the easiest time I ever had finding pictures and getting the
addresses of the schools. Seems that the internet is finally catching on.
Thanks for that Al. I did have a heck of a time finding a decent logo of
the SEC conference which is why the one above is so lame. Then I had to get
a matching lame Pac-10 logo to not show favoritism. I have no idea if Lionel
Turner or Reggie Bush are any good. I ride a scooter to work
every day. Beats walking. Best line from a movie this year: "The fish is
talking!" "But is he saying anything. Hmmm. Not really." I sometimes find
myself wondering if Obi-Wan should have told Luke what happened to his
father. It's not like I think about it a lot. Just from time to time. Today
I saw a full sized Krackel candy bar. You never really see those, just
the small "fun sized" ones. I guess it's kind of like old dimes. You
never find any of those either. They should just leave Roosevelt on the dime.
The Lions got a new coach and they still stink. Notice how the trend
in the NFL right now is to make your uniforms as ugly as possible. If you
don't believe me, check out the Bills and especially the Seahawks. Atlanta
and Cincinnati aren't so great either. Colleges are doing it too. (Oregon). The
Michael Vick injury killed the Falcon's season. I like to call things "Big
Giant." Like Big Giant Dog or Big Giant Panda. It's fun, but not that fun.
I have a Big Giant Cat. I think Management in Carnivale is God. I think I was the first person I
know who figured out that the last place you look for something is wherever
the item is because once you find it, you don't look anymore. Unless you're
into that sort of thing. Then you just keep on looking.
