I come from a town — well, technically a village — where the biggest holiday celebration was a few small decorations on the lampposts.
Now, to be fair, there were only a total of 618 souls who lived there.

Fobbs, Dooley under consideration

GRAMBLING — Saturday’s Celebration Bowl opponent North Carolina A&T isn’t the only obstacle facing the Grambling State Tigers this weekend.
They’re also facing the distraction of possibly losing two coaches.
Multiple reports say that GSU head coach Broderick Fobbs is high up on the list for Louisiana-Lafayette, which is looking to replace former head coach Mark Hudespeth, who was fired on Dec. 3.
Also reportedly under consideration for that job is Nicholls State head coach Tim Rebowe, McNeese State head coach Lancy Guidry and Penn State defensive coordinator Brent Pry.
