Don't Forget, GMAC Bowl Starting
In case people have forgotten, and we apologize for being deficient in our duties (blame the clogged tubes), there is the 2nd most important bowl game of the week beginning in about 5 minutes on ESPN.
The GMAC Bowl pits Southern Mississippi against THE Ohio University from Mobile, AL. Undoubtedly, Frank Solich is probably sober for tonights game since it avoids being on New Years Day.
ESPN's analysis of the game has Southern Mississippi winning this game a good 63% of the time, so I'm not going to offer any analysis outside of the following:
Bobcat v. Golden Eagle
Now, this would be a far different contest if it were, say, a bald eagle rather than purely a Golden Eagle. As we all know, nothing can beat a bald eagle, not even Chuck Norris. Thinking otherwise would just be un-American dammit. However, a Golden Eagle is merely golden in color and not in composition. I would say a Bobcat would struggle to destroy the golden outer shell of an eagle in that instance.
Obviously, the Bobcat is at an obvious disadvantage due to its inability to fly. It does seem to have the ability to jump off of tall mountains, so assuming the eagle is caught off guard, it may stand a chance in high altitudes... though it would surely die from the fall. The plan of attack would be to cut off the wings of the bird, thus rendering it to fighting from the ground. Outside of that, its the bobcat's job to protect its eyes and formidable genitalia.
In the end, on a neutral surface, I could see the eagle dominating the first 5-10 minutes of the fight, with the bobcat finally getting 1 good swipe in, rendering the eagle grounded. Though it would put up a valiant effort, using its talons to enact low blows at opportune moments, the bobcat would exit alive yet wounded.
