aye didnt no they grow spinach in havai’i, they could host a bowl a week during bowl season really, alot of places could, there could be a playoff in every bowl location every year, 1-4 for the national championship in dallas, 5-8 play a playoff in hawaii, 9-12 play a playoff in LA, 13-16 play a playoff in cedar rapids, it would be like march madnessish, you could make a vacation out of it and see 4 bowl games that week, in the host city of your choice, they could even do it on the moon one day

I’m a man who loves his Popeye’s but this is certainly one of the quirkier sponsorships out there. I’m surprised that Popeye’s never sponsored a Louisianan/Southeast bowl considering how regionally identified it is. A Popeye’s New Orleans Bowl or a Popeye’s Louisianan Bowl seemed like a match made in heaven.
