Armed Forces Bowl! Get Your Tickets Now!

How ironic is it that Cal will be playing in the Armed Forces Bowl? The boys from Berkeley, home of tree-huggers, tree-sitters, and elected radicals from all sides of the left quadrant of the political spectrum, heading to Texas to play the Air Force Academy in a veritable holiday festival of American military might.

The pre-game schedule, according to the game's Web site:

Armed Forces Adventure at 9:00 AM
Fighter jet flyover
Helicopter flyover
Skydiving demonstration
MA3 Great American Patriot Award
Military induction ceremony
Military color guard
Military concert band
Live remotes from overseas soldiers on stadium video board
Each quarter will spotlight a different service branch
Major "Thank You" to veterans and active duty personnel

Go Bears! They don't deserve to be there, but I'll be rooting for them, all decked out in Blue & Gold.
