Holiday Bowl Mini-Preview + Monumental Choke Job!

The fine people at NBC Sports invited me to do a mini-preview of the Holiday Bowl with an Arizona State blogger this past week. It was all good and fun until we got to the trivia segment of the broadcast. (Click here for the video segment.)

NBC edited the tape down a bit, but when we recorded the segment, I stumbled for 10 seconds to remember the last two lines of the Eyes of Texas. Which is fine - I learned long ago not to be afraid to look like an idiot - but this is a particularly mystifying gaffe. I did the math and calculated I must have belted out that tune at least 250 times in my life.

Apparently, though, not under pressure. The lesson, as always: don't be afraid to laugh at yourself.

Happy Holidays,
PB
