What's in the bag

It's no secret that the most important question to media members during the debates is "What swag are we getting?" So, dear national media colleagues, here is a rundown of what you'll see in your goodie bag next week:

- Belmont University Debate08 T-shirt
- Chicago Climate Exchange certificate from Polar Technology to offset carbon emissions from flying to Nashville
- USB drive with information on the debate, attached to a Porridge Papers seed tag that contains wildflower seeds (the card itself can be planted ... wonder if Belmont has been using these on its campus?)
- Bottled water (not so green)
- Moon Pie
- Goo Goo Cluster
- M&Ms
- Tennessee Tea Cake
- Hatch Show Print commemorative debate print (probably the coolest thing in the bag)
- HCA pen and notepad (not suitable for writing prescriptions)
- Nashville tourism guide
- Christmas at Belmont DVD
- Various Belmont promotional material, including a card for Bob and Judy Fisher's book, "Life is a Gift"
- Macy's savings pass
- Debate08 and "Nashville" pins
- Debate programming guide
- Various sponsor brochures

What do you think should have been included? I could definitely have used some Yazoo brew, but I'm guessing Anheuser Busch would have nixed it.
