Good morning, it’s Tuesday, 2 January 2018 and this is an abbreviated Morning Edition of The Nightshift (the Media Bunker staff is taking an extended weekend off). Welcome to 2018.
Georgia beat Oklahoma 54-48 in a double overtime game played at the Rose Bowl last night to claim one of the two spaces in the National Championship College Football Game (to be played on Monday, 8 January 2018). Alabama beat Clemson 24-6 to take the other spot. Two SEC teams (Alabama, Georgia) will play for the National Championship. The Georgia-Oklahoma game, the first overtime game in the history of the Rose Bowl, is already being considered a classic. The Alabama-Clemson game was luckluster by comparison (unless you’re an Alabama fan, in which case it was just fine).
The front pages (and sometimes more) of the world’s great English language newspapers are linked below.
Today is National Personal Trainer Awareness Day. Fits right in with your New Year’s resolutions, right?
Happy New Year to all who checked into The Nightshift in 2017.
