Congratulations to Colorado State University’s football team, which has accepted an invitation to play Navy in something called the Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 22 in San Diego.
As a college football player, going to a bowl game is one of the ultimate achievements. But after you’ve graduated, do you put this on your resume?
Give One Year of 5280 for just $16.
Rose Bowl? Cool.
Poinsettia Bowl? Um, not so much. How will this look on a resume?

Went to Poinsettia Bowl
Sure, it’s cool to go to a bowl game, but this one really needs a good explanation. Even if you do get the chance to explain that the Poinsettia Bowl wasn’t an arts & crafts club that you joined in college, nobody is going to believe you when you finally convince them that it was a bowl game.
So, you played football at CSU?
Why, yes, I did.
Did you ever play in a bowl game?
Yes, I played in the Poinsettia Bowl.
Sure thing, pal. And I played in the Toilet Bowl.
Congratulations again to Colorado State University, and good luck explaining this one to your friends.
