Holiday Bowl Tickets on Sale

Every December San Diego rolls out the red carpet for two deserving college football teams for the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl.

08_blount_leap_newsMany of my favorite memories growing up a sports fan in San Diego were watching Holiday Bowl games. Players like Barry Sanders, Steve Young, and Jim McMahon have turned in memorable performances at these games, so you’re likely to see a future NFL star on the field.

The game kicks off at 5 p.m., Wednesday, December 30th at Qualcomm Stadium. The game matches teams from the Pacific-10 and Big 12 Conferences. The 2008 game featured a 42-31 Oregon Ducks victory over the Oklahoma State Cowboys in front of 59,106 fans and an ESPN national television audience.

About Brian

I am married with two beautiful children and loving life. I’m pretty sure my head size is literally getting larger every year I go past 30, is that normal? I love my job & hometown of SD and if you ever visit you’ll understand why my city is better than the rest.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego day?

Golf in the morning. Then head to La Jolla shores with friends. Wrap it up with dinner at a great sushi restaurant and then finish watching the Padres beat the Dodgers.

If you were invisible, where would you go?

Behind the scenes just about anywhere. I always want to know what’s making it all tick, at a theme park, a ballpark, or a concert. I love seeing what's happening behind the curtain.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

Hanging at the beach and playing volleyball with friends. I also really love going to dog beach & now that I’m a new dad, anywhere that makes the little guy laugh.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Burgers and beer for sure!
