Happy New Year. Fitting we start off with the top 3 playing musical chairs, as I have the impression this may go on for quite a while in 2013. At least through summer. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to go back to the 1D pun well for titles, so hopefully Miss Swift and Mister Beiber will prove up to the task of sharing the top spot.
Rounding out the top five are two bowl games that haven’t been played yet, but are very close. The BCS and Cotton Bowl effectively round out the college football season. You still have time to get your seats for the Fighting Irish’s return to the national championship game in Miami.
The bottom five has a couple bowl games that are already in the history books. Lots of searching over last weekend and, interestingly enough, New Years Day, helped the Orange and Sugar Bowls return to the countdown. Apparently lots of people shook off the previous evening’s revelries with some nice, quiet internet surfing.
The NFL playoffs will likely carve out a solid niche in the middle of the countdown in the coming month. This week the Redskins are the team of choice, plus, as usual, the goal of said playoffs, the Super Bowl. It will likely climb up a few notches from #10 as February 3rd nears.
