If you enjoy college football bowl games then you will be a happy camper from December 21st through January 6th as there are 35 bowl games during that three-week period.
So, sit back and enjoy bowl games, Christmas and the ringing in of the New Year while taking in some exciting college football.
If you have the ESPN networks at your disposal then you can be assured of being able to view 31 of this season’s 35 bowl games carried on that network. ABC will carry two bowl games and Fox Sports and CBS will carry one each.
So, before the gifts are opened, after they are opened, or while you are ringing in the New Year, you will have ample time to take in some college football. Hopefully, your family enjoys football as much as you do; if not, make sure that you take some time away from the TV to enjoy some good ol’ family time during the holidays.
College football is a fantastic past time but it can't come close to the joy of spending quality time, especially this time of the year, with family.
As we celebrate Christmas and the ringing in of the New Year remember to take time to remember what we have to be thankful for, not only now, but throughout the year.
To all the members of the United States Armed Forces and their families, thank you for the many sacrifices you make so that we can enjoy the holiday season. May each and every one of you have a Merry Christmas and a safe, prosperous and Happy New Year. Let's hope and pray that this time next year that there won't be a need for these families to be apart.
To all the Herald readers who have lost loved ones this year, we can't physically see that loved one but we can definitely remember the great memories; we can close our eyes and see them in our mind’s eye and feel their presence in our heart.
Above all, let's remember the reason for the season is the birth of Jesus Christ. Once again a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
