The Pinstripe Bowl: Worst bowl game name ever?


They said it couldn't be done, but there may be a stupider bowl game name than the Poulan Weed-Eater Independence Bowl. And sadly, it's New York City that gets that is the loser. The bowl game to be played at Yankee Stadium unofficially nicknamed "The Yankee Bowl" now has an official name: The New Era Pinstripe Bowl.
Ouch.
Why this thing isn't called the Yankee Bowl is beyond all logic. It probably involves lawyers, trademark law, and the general stupidity of Major League Baseball. Not only does that go down as possible the worst name ever for a bowl game, it possibly outmatches the Pork the Other White Meat 400 as the worst named sporting event ever.
The game first game is set for December 30, 2010. It will see the sixth place team in the Big 12 against the third place team in the Big East. NYC may most important city in the world (at least to New Yorkers, and it's hard to argue with them), so the most important city gets the leftovers from the Big 12 and Big East. Yeah, that will work. New York and college football deserve better.
