As the very talented singer Andy Williams sang in 1963;
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you be of good cheer
It’s the most wonderful time of the year”
Many people will insist that the song, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” was written for the holiday season. But the truth may be out there that it was instead written for the return of the college football season.
While the official kick-off to the college football season starts this coming weekend. There was a game played in Australia on Friday night, make that Saturday, that saw the Cal Bears defeat the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors 51-31. This other side of the globe showdown was a warm up of sorts for the 2016 season as ESPN provided play by play from their studios.
So, to get things warmed up for the 2016 season, here are the first Monday Morning Twitter Pages of the 2016 season.

Whenever I f**k up bad, I just remember that somewhere, an ant just brought borax laced food back to his queen and killed his entire family.
