Do you remember the Glasnost Bowl?
July 4, 2009 1:32 AM   Subscribe

Did they really get the bright idea to host a college football game in Soviet Russia, and then have to cancel it because they couldn't sell enough vacation packages? The Wikipedia entry about the Glasnost Bowl has a bunch of outdated angelfire pages as its sources. The 1989 New York Times article that mentions it doesn't treat it as very interesting. I think it would make a publishable journal article if it's real and am looking for more info.

Have a look around the Google News Archives - a search for Glasnost Bowl brings up a heap of original news articles.
