Let’s talk about something other than figgy pudding and what’s on your holiday gift list this year.

 

Holiday party overload,

The Last Night’s Game Team


COLLEGE FOOTBALL

And you thought you had a Sunday Funday. Yesterday, we found out which four college football teams will be playing in the semifinal games on New Year's Day. If you want to sound in the know, the controversy around the playoffs is that Alabama was chosen over Ohio State, even though they had a weaker schedule and didn't win their conference. Here's more on that discussion.
 

When someone asks for your number. A Georgia fan tackled their playoff opponent Oklahoma by sending out the phone number of Oklahoma’s quarterback, Baker Mayfield. Mayfield changed his number and then gave props to the Georgia fans for all their creative text messages. And you thought your Tinder messages were tough to read. 

 

OVERTIME

HGTV star Chip Gaines is going to need a different type of Fixer Upper after being leveled on the sidelines of a Baylor basketball game. Don't fret because immediately after the tackle, he stood up, waved to the crowd and received a bigger cheer than the basketball team did all night. 

 

SIDELINE STAT

Who said you have to don a helmet and cleats to be on ESPN? The Southern College Cornhole Championships took place this weekend and the competition was as fierce as a fraternity tailgate party. The team from Arkansas took home the championship, $4,000 in prize money and the bragging rights, because chicks dig throwing bags. Don't know what cornhole is? We'll explain. 

 

COACHES’ CORNER

Being the head coach of the New York Yankees (MLB - Major League Baseball) is a high-pressure job that requires a stellar coaching resume. Until now. The Yankees hired former player and current broadcaster Aaron Boone as their head coach. It’s back into the pinstripes for the former Yankee player and not the kind that includes handcuffs. Well, maybe not literally.
