Go Daddy takes over the GMAC Bowl

Whenever I've watched the GMAC Bowl -- and I watch it every year -- I can't help but think to myself "You know what this stellar matchup of teams from the MAC Conference and Sun Belt Conference needs?  More stupid commercials with Danica Patrick in them.  That would really put the whole ensemble together."

Well, I've finally gotten my wish.  It was announced on Monday that GoDaddy.com would be taking over the title sponsorship of the GMAC Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, giving us the very first GoDaddy.com Bowl.   Get excited, people!

"We're excited to have a powerhouse like Go Daddy behind Mobile's biggest event of the year," said GoDaddy.com Bowl President Jerry Silverstein . "Go Daddy stepped up big time for this sponsorship, which is good for all of us. Our bowl holds the record for the highest-scoring game in college football bowl game history. We are looking forward to another marquee match-up."

My only fear is that while the first half of the game will be shown on television, they'll then force all of us to go online to see the conclusion, and when we do, we'll all be severly disappointed.

Go Daddy takes over the GMAC Bowl

So I ask myself, would I rather watch Danica trying to sell me a web site, or Ditka trying to sell me a Coors lite.  OK, so those GoDaddy commercials aren't Pulitzer material.  That silver locomotive that trails a blizzard everywhere it goes is?!?!?!  And don't get me started on that "Nuh-nuh-nuh-Napa Know How" campaign!  Somebody's been watch'n too many Simpson's episodes.  I'll take Danica every time.  Even though there's no more likelihood of her fully unzipping that jacket than there was of Betty Jo and the other girls accidentaly popping out of that water tank at the beginning of Pettycoat Junction when I was 8.  But I watched every week.....
