Bowl disappointment comes in many different flavors. The Purdue and Central Michigan players at the Motor City Bowl partied at a bowling alley. Fresno State and Georgia Tech players traveling to the Humanitarian Bowl are playing a game sponsored by a series of truck stops

Cool Re: Shreveport: The Grandaddy of Bad Bowl Games

That's funny. The Mrs. lived there for a year, I'll have to show this too her (I bet she agrees!!).

Being bowl-eligible used to mean something because there was a finite number of bowls, just as produce was a lot higher quality when they didn't let the bruised apples through inspection. Thanks to ESPN's family of fake bowls and the proliferation of bowl games, the current de facto playoff system bears less resemblance to the NFL or MLB playoffs and looks more like the NHL playoffs: Everyone with a pulse gets postseason exposure.

Its a funny editorial but the meaningless bowl games with ridiculous sponsors continue to spread.

I was born in Houston but raised in Shreveport and surrounding areas. Spent probably two thirds of my life to date in that hole. The writeup was brutally honest.

I take it that this guy has spent time there - it was too accurate for him not to have.

My dad always told me that if the Earth had an anus it would located somewhere in the vicinity of Shreveport Louisiana.

This article seems to confirm this. I never went there to see for myself (for obvious reasons)

Your Dad is right on Herv!! I lived in that nasty hellhole years ago and NEVER had any desire to go back. One of the worst experiences of my life, and that's no joke. HOT, humid, stinky, and roaches the size of Mario's middle finger!

IMO, the earth's anus would have to be in New Orleans. Shreveport would probably constitute one of the armpits or perhaps the pereneum.

Don't forget Pasadena or El Paso.

Default Re: Shreveport: The Grandaddy of Bad Bowl Games

Personally I love Shreveport. I was into the music scene there. Especially some of those clubs right on the River, like; Freddie Macs, James Burton's (former Elvis guitarist and Rock-n-Roll HOFer) place. I saw Kenny Wayne Shepard perform In Shreve several times at places like Proud Mary's... Caddo Lake and Cross lake are really nice.


I guess it helps being friends with locals that know where to go.
