Syracuse blogger helping Houston-area kids attend Texas bowl
Syracuse is more than 1,500 miles from Houston.
So odds are many Orange fans won’t be able to make the cross-country trip for the Texas Bowl against Minnesota on Dec. 27.
But one Syracuse blogger for SBNation.com is trying to help fill Reliant Stadium while also showing some holiday spirit.
Sean Keeley of NunesMagician.com wanted to see if he could help send 200 underprivileged Houston-area kids to the bowl game.
“Let’s take a little bit of the money we would have spent and use it to send some local kids who couldn’t otherwise attend the game to go on our behalf,” Keeley wrote in his blog.
Fans have responded and now Keeley says they are closer to sending 400 kids to the game.
