College football bowl games preview: 35 GIFs for 35 games, Part 2

Do you have the time to figure out whether every bowl is worth watching? Of course not. Hate reading? Love funny moving pictures? Robert Wheel is here to help with his 2012 bowl games GIF preview. Here's Part 1!

For some actual bowl game coverage, here's the full schedule, along with picks for each game and watchability ratings. But that's boring!

Hello sports connoisseur, Robert "Bobby Big Wheel" Wheel here. I know that you're a busy guy or gal these days, what with all the Christmas shopping and closing deals before the end of the fourth quarter and mistress stuff. And that means you probably don't know which bowls this season are worth watching.

The answer, of course, is all of them. We're about to enter eight months of hell that contain no football, and there'll be a night in July when you're at the bar trying to talk yourself into caring about a late night Mariners-Astros game, and you'll wish that you had watched the Holiday Bowl when you had the chance.

But I want to make sure you know what you're in for, so here are my GIF previews of each bowl. Part 2 is below, and here is the link to Part 1.
