#HLSBowlMania Is Here

Here at HLS, if we can find any way to have our loyal readers battle for internet bragging rights, we’re going to do it. With that in mind, we are here to introduce #HLSBowlMania.

You may have seen a few tweets floating around about this already, but we wanted to make sure to put this fresh into everyone’s minds this week as the bowl games start this weekend. So if you haven’t signed up yet, be sure to do so and get your picks in.

You will pick these games straight-up and assign them confidence points. The person with the most points at the end of bowl season earns ETERNAL INTERNET GLORY!

…or something.

Sign up and come join the fun. This is your chance to prove your football smarts against the HLS staff.

Bring it.

Quick Update: If you already have a bowl pick filled out at ESPN, simply search for #HLSBowlMania to find and join the group. The above links only work if you don’t yet have an entry (h/t @radiofreekruzr).

      Hey Patrick,

      Quick suggestion for commenting on HLS: Swarbrick and Kelly do not read HLS. Even if they did, I seriously doubt they’ll be taking advice from our comment section.

      Second quick suggestion: Stay on topic. The ND DC job has zero to do with this post.

    Hey mycustomcase dot com, I placed an order on December 4th with anticipated arrival within two to four business days. Why have I still not received by case? My wife is going to be very disappointed if she doesn’t receive her over-priced iPhone case for Christmas. Please, PLEASE consider hiring a very respectable production manager that can keep up with the holiday rush.

    Have you guys seen the trailer for the new Hercules movie? It looks incredible. Very “300″ -esque ….but,I think it looks like they ate trying to say something about the duality of man.

    Hey Mike Brey…I noticed you employed the open collar Oxford dress shirt during Saturday’s game against the Hoosiers, a look you’ve been implementing more and more this season.

    I hope this doesn’t mean you’ve gone cold turkey on the mock-turtles of years past. News flash: mock turtles are awesome! Please wear them!

    Best Mock Turtle candidates:

    LL Bean
    Lands End
    Duluth Trading

    Jesus guys would you PLEASE pipe down! IrishElvis and I are watching Maury and we’re about to find out who the baby daddy is. Show some courtesy for the love of God…..

    Need an opinion:

    Is a chihuahua saying “Yo Quiero Taco Bell” in a heavy chicano accent really that culturally insensitive?

    Also, whats the best temperature to cook a ham at while locking in the juices and not drying it out?

    And does anyone know the actual way to San Jose? Like, is there just the one way or something? Someone should reassess that song.
