If you’re lucky your team is playing in one of the semifinals or semi meaningful games. If not, I suggest throwing down a few bucks on your personal favorite illegal gambling site to keep things interesting. Either way, bowl season has a lot of ground to cover. And just like the staff here at Sports Vacations we want to help you cover that ground while you’re burning those last few PTO days you forgot to utilize.
