    "When you’re a USC football fan and your team isn’t playing in a bowl game for the first time since 2011, a rainy day can be doubly miserable. When you’re a member of the Latitudes (that really is the name of a group of Orange County businessmen), rain can inspire you.....

    Over 22 days, a handful of longtime friends will travel to 15 states across six time zones in an attempt to see 18 college football bowl games.

    They are calling the trip “Bowlmaggedon.” They had a logo designed and t-shirts made. And hats. And pullover sweatshirts.

    This is what some rich dudes do when they want to get crazy. The Latitudes are real estate developers, attorneys, software designers, advertising executives and there’s a former major league pitcher, too.

    They will start with the Celebration Bowl on Saturday, Dec. 15 in Atlanta and end with the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 7 in Santa Clara. In between, they plan to drink a lot of martinis and eat enough food – hot dogs, pulled pork, oyster po’ boys and key lime pie are part of their first day’s menu – to challenge even the most steely gastrointestinal tract.

    They say their efforts (should they all survive the grueling schedule) will result in a Guinness World Record for most bowl games attended in a college football season..."

    That's some serious life lemonade right there. Fight On!

    Wow, that must’ve come together in about 10 days....what a headache in planning and procurement.

    Props.

    I love college football....but not that much.

    Damn you going to bump old threads just to brag about your fanhood, dude just give it a rest.

    Clay isn't your love of his life so there isn't going to be any scissoring with him.

    Bowl games used to mean something.....it was a reward for having a good season.

    Now a 5-7 team gets a bid.

    Stupid soccer/participation trophy mentality that’s plagued the last couple generations.
