1st Annual Area 51 Turkey Bowl

1st annual Area 51 Turkey Bowl is in the books!  Congrats to the Low Slow Squantos for taking the crown as champions of Area 51.

To say that I wasn’t nervous about how this thing would go down would be a lie.  But in the end, I think everyone had a good time and hopefully we will continue this in the years to come.  Just some general observations below and feel free to add in your own in the comments section:

  • Thanks to Runstopper for leading the pax in a quick warm up prior to the game
  • Thank you to TR for taking the photos
  • Great to see the competitive sides of some of you.
  • I’d like to see Mighty Mite and Loogie put on some pads and go at it. #TMI?  Matter of fact, think Loogie thought he was wearing pads with some of the blocks he was laying today.  Shoulder right to the sternum felt great.
  • Bulldog looked a bit out of sorts today.  “What?  I thought we were playing futbol?”  He did burn YHC on an illegal play for a TD.  Ain’t cheatin ain’t tryin I guess.
  • Not too many injuries but glad none were severe.  Joker with a pulled cheek and Peeper (not sure how you got this name and I don’t want to know) with a pulled hammy.  Get better soon fellas.
  • Tennis shoes + mud = Fail
  • Pretty sure Hops was paid off by someone with all those calls he was missing (your 6 pack of choice will be delivered next week)
  • Glad Slim Fast still showed even though he wanted the site moved to the Davie Park turf.  Mud was more ‘fun’
  • Impressed with how quickly Strange Brew picked up on the American Football rules.  Dude was a machine today

I will end this by saying that I am very thankful for each and every one you guys.  F3 is an amazing organization but it’s the PAX that make it special.  Here’s to everyone having a safe and fulfilling Thanksgiving day with family and friends.

Was a blast! Great idea getting this off the ground. Another first by Area 51. Look forward to this annual game if we make a tradition of it. Loved the Madden chicken handout. And donkey kong, nuthin but live for ya man. Loogie throws some brutal blocks and mighty mite is a machine. Thankful for the pax! Turkey up.

What a fun time! Definitely a tradition that needs to continue. Thanks to Brown and Spackler for getting it put together and congrats to the champs.

Excellent job Spackler and Brown! Tons of fun! Playing at Olde Providence was absolutely the right call! And given the number of times I fell, the mud was a welcome cushion!

Everyone have a great Thanksgiving! I know the McAlisters have a lot to be thankful for!

Few of my observations…

Someone told spackler he smelled like alcohol.
Splinter called me out — mid-play — for a bit of intestinal turbulence.
One of hop’s sons made a savvy “illegal touching” call when a player went out of bounds then made a reception.
Geraldo plays like mark bavaro.

Great job by spackler and brown.

Looks like it was a great time. Disappointed to have missed it. I heard Joker was throwing darts.

Thanks for the pics TR, were those Polaroids?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
