THE 12 BOWLS OF CHRISTMAS...THE ORB BRAINTRUST PICKS THE WINNERS!!
For the first 12 Bowls of Christmas, the Original Retro Brand will give to you.......Our expert football picks (and a chance to win 2 FREE Original Retro Brand tees)!!
For most of the College football season, you have been blessed with only my superfluous insight and expertise at picking the weekly winners of the most significant games. Reality painted a picture of mediocrity however (expertise duth not equal a record of 23-23!), and therefore it is time to bring in some fresh perspective for the REALLY SIGNIFICANT games.
I figured why not go to the folks in my own backyard, and have a little fun. With that in mind, I summoned Original Retro Brand CEO Marc Herman, CFO Rick Schwartz, and VP of Marketing & Licensing, Cassidy Moore, to have them join me in picking the winners of the upcoming Bowl games. We'll keep it simple for you too, ok? (Who has time to break down every single game in detail anyway? WE MAKE SHIRTS!!). We'll just give you each person's list of who will win each game. I will keep a tally up to, and including the BCS Championship game, and then post the winner. The winner will receive a laurel and hardy handshake, and the loser will have to go to the Original Retro Brand warehouse and do inventory (have you seen how many shirts we have?!!). You can win 2 Original Retro Brand shirts by sending yours truly an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than this Monday evening, 12/21/09, advising on which Original Retro Brand "expert" will be the overall winner!! Any ties will be broken by picking names out of an Original Retro Brand hat. So.......here are the Bowls and the ORB expert's picks:
