Boycott Chick-Fil-A

Other organizations have bastardized the bowl series, but Georgia has always managed to hang on to the Peach Bowl. Sure, we started calling it the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl, which was acceptable because CFA was forking over so much dough. But, this is unacceptable. The Chick-Fil-A Bowl is full of cow manure. And I don’t think I can eat any more chicken with that.

Even Nokia has kept “sugar” in the Nokia Sugar Bowl. And we still have the Rose Bowl, the Cotton Bowl, the Fiesta Bowl, etc.

For a company so fundamentally linked with Georgia, it was really crummy of Chick-Fii-A to take the peach out of the Peach Bowl.

  • Gotta disagree with you here. Why keep the name “Peach”? Simply for traditions sake? Tradition is not all bad but it isn’t the ultimate either. If you ask me, Chick-Fil-A is one of the most admirable companies around so I think it is a great thing for one of the top bowls to be named after them.

    Better than the Poulan Weed-eater Bowl.

  • I admire Bill Gates, but I’m not going to start calling the Super Bowl the Microsoft Bowl. I was freaked out when they started calling the Winston Cup the Nextel Cup – it’s just not the same thing. I mean Sprint/Nextel is located in Kansas – it was traditional that NASCAR was a southern sport? Now the whole shabang is named after some company in Kansas. Although, Nextel does have the old headquarters in VA which is somewhat southern (well parts of it anyway), it’s still not the same.

    Let’s just hope the Stanley Cup remains the same. I would hate for Disney to buy it up and rename it the Mickey Mouse cup. Why not, Disney buys everything? And God forbid they start calling the Masters tournament – the Wal-Mart Golf Championship!!! Hey there’s an idea, Wal-Mart is a great company too right?
