Stupid Bowl Game Names

Dear readers, consider the dog's breakfast made of our once stately procession of bowl games by 'the markets', ponder the philosophical insistence in some benighted quarters that they are the only possible answer to society's problems, and despair.

The Rose Bowl at least still insists on a fig leaf to preserve a wayward shred of institutional dignity, billing itself as

Rose Bowl Game presented by Vizio

In keeping with our current national posture of ALL WAR, EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME, this year finds two defense contractors in the lineup-

Military Bowl Presented By Northrop Grumman
Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl

These are just embarrassing- 

TicketCity Bowl
Meineke Car Care of Texas Bowl
Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl
New Era Pinstripe Bowl
Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl

Although the early bottom-feeder bowls fare even worse-

Beef 'O' Brady's St. Petersburg Bowl
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl

and my personal favorite:

Kraft Fight HungerBowl

Note please one of the participants is UCLA, who capped their season with a 50-0 loss to USC.
The perfect seasoning!
