This year’s list has both fun and practical items, and a few Bowls even have the gift that keeps on giving. A one-year ESPN the Magazine subscription!!! Well it keeps giving for a year at least.

Man, I sure am jealous. I was an NCAA athlete that participated in Conference Championships and such, but all I ever received for free was a pair of Brooks shoes. They also weighed about 40 lbs, and we’re white, green and pink, so I never wore them. What I would have done for an ESPN the Mag subscrip and a 26-inch LCD TV.
