Countdown to 2010

Northwestern Wildcats Purple Hoodie, $59.95, available at

Monday and Tuesday this week seem to be nothing more than a tiny pause — the lame duck days of 2009 — before the New Year’s festivities begin. Me? I’m traveling to Tampa, Florida where I plan on becoming a fair weather fan of the Northwestern Wildcats at the Outback Bowl. The way I see it, I didn’t have a college team to support. No football team in grad school either. As a result, this New Year’s trip is kind of a big deal. I’m ready to go full force with my Wildcats pride – my friend’s fiancé is an alum and I’m relying on him to teach me all I need to know to blend in. Something else I’m contemplating? Making an investment in some team merch to wear to the Big Game. After all, purple is my favorite color.
