AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl: It has been scheduled for Dec. 26, 2011 at 4 pm. Christmas is on a Sunday this year, and the bowl game will be played on Monday, a holiday. A columnists asks: “how many families in Provo, Utah, or Charlottesville, Va., are going to load up the car, pump it full of $4 a gallon gas and then drive all day Christmas Day to get here? Oh that’s right, many could fly here — which would likely take a loan or hitting the Lotto considering the cost of flying in and out of Shreveport Regional Airport.” There’s always the option of spending Christmas in a real city like Dallas or New Orleans, then driving 200+ miles to the game … but that wouldn’t give Shreveport the tourist bump it is looking for. And if that happens, who will the “student-athletes” be the “toast of the town” for all week in Shreveport? [Shreveport Times]
