2010-2011 Bowl Assignments

<< < (3/8) > >>

Atlanta Blue:
Well, I'll be the Official Scorer of the Chick-fil-A Bowl (and no, I don't begin to compare that to an onfield assignment!).

Heck that is more than most of us who are settling for the lofty positon of armchair evaluator!!!  Oh well, the pay is great ( all the snacks and adult beverages you can consume) , can take a whizz whenever we want, and the crowd we get to hang with is not half bad.

I'm in the same boat as AB, chain crew at NM Bowl, on the field, but not "on the field".

I get the honor of being the Humanitarian Bowl host for the crew from the MWC and being the Redhat for the game.  5th year I have done this and it is a great gig.  Meeting and working with officials from throughout the country.

Grant - AR:
