The Emerald Bowl: Lamest bowl with coolest name?

The Emerald Bowl may be the coolest named or the really sucky bowls. Sure it's named after a brand of nuts, but it's still better sounding than the Little Caesars Bowl (Also being played Saturday).
For a crummy bowl, the Emerald Bowl does have a lot going for it. It's in San Francisco, which beats Shreveport, LA any day. Plus, it does have a really cool sounding name. This year it has USC vs. Boston College. The Trojans less-than-stellar season should prove a boon to the Emerald Bowl, at least in the ratings.
What's really crummy about the Emerald Bowl? The winner doesn't actually get an emerald bowl as a trophy. It's just another generic looking trophy. Does finding a glassmaker to make a bowl out of green glass or crystal really cost that much? If you're going to play something called the Emerald Bowl, you ought to at least try to have something emerald relating to it, don't you think?
