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
and LSU.

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.

* Logos are trademarked images of the respective schools and conference. Pictures of the players are property of whomever took them. We appreciate the use of the photos and hope the rightful owners enjoys the exposure they are being given. If not, let us know, we'll take them off and replace them with drawings or something else. 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.
