Golden Nuggets: Happy New Year!

Ninjames is off the grid a bit this week so I'm handling the Nuggets today (and possibly tomorrow).  I hope everyone had a good time last night ringing in the New Year.  I'm writing this up the night before and I'll be heading out to a bar at a nearby casino to countdown to 2010.  We'll see how the night ends.  Although we're into a new year, we've got some unfinished business to deal with on Sunday when the 49ers face St. Louis.  In the meantime, enjoy some New Year's Day bowl action.  We've got 5 games with Drew K's first game thread coming later this morning (just a heads-up that it might possibly be midway through the first game).  Enjoy and Happy New Year!
