"The $35 million that the United States plans to spend on disaster relief for the tsunamis in Asia is a miserly drop in the bucket."
From an article in the Houston Chronicle 12/21/04:
"Rose Bowl payout: $14.5 million per team.
Cotton Bowl payout: $3 million per team.
Holiday Bowl payout: $2 million per team.
...In total, seven Big 12 teams are going to bowls that pay more than $37 million dollars, but each team will probably bank around $1.7 million."
