CU Poinsettia Bowl makes the comics
MADISON, Wis. (1/5/09)--A credit union’s sponsorship of a college football bowl made a national comic syndicate last week, appearing in The Washington Post, The Wisconsin State Journal, and other newspapers Thursday. The comic, “Real Life Adventures,” by Lance Aldrich and Graham Nolan, featured a husband and wife having a conversation about what was on television that day. The wife asked her husband what he was watching, and he replied, “The San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.” She said, “Wow, sponsor naming rights seem to have gotten cheaper.” He responded: “Oh good! The ‘Ms. Laub’s 3rd grade class Flax Bowl’ is on next.” The San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl was Dec. 23. The credit union has sponsored the bowl since 2005, the first year it was held (News Now Dec. 6, 2005). San Diego County CU has $4.2 billion in assets. To see the comic, use the link.
