Highlights from The Super Burro Bowl

Super Burro Bowl One did not get off to a great start.
Lucy immediately got a 5-yard penalty for offsides...

... then Alan took advantage of her mistake and ran for a first down.

The ball exchanged hands mouths throughout the first quarter.

Lucy: I hate this game. I never know which way I'm supposed to run.

Referee: 15-yard penalty, defense, illegal use of the tongue!

Again, Alan took advantage of his opponent's mistake and ran for another first down.

Referee: 10-yard penalty, defense, unsportsmanlike conduct!

This time, Alan took the ball across the goal line.
At the end of the half, the score was Alan 6, George 0.

Sadly, I did not get any pictures of the half-time show. You should have seen it.
There was Wynonna, in her lace gloves and bustier, rockin' it. Seriously.
Smokin' hot. Think smoked ham. Yum.

Anyway, after the half-time show, the game resumed and Alan had possession at the 40-yard line.

But he fumbled the ball and George retrieved it!

Referee: Penalty, offense and defense, 20 yards for unnecessary cuteness!

The rest of the game was marred by one penalty after another.

Referee: Penalty, defense, pass interference, 15 yards,
plus an additional 5 yards for stinkeye.

Referee: 10-yard penalty, offense, too many players on the field!

Referee: 50-yard penalty, offense, poking eye out!

Alan: Damn referee...spoils all my fun. I'll show her.

With two seconds left in the game, Alan crosses into the end zone with the ball!

Al Michaels: Alan, you've just scored the winning touchdown in Super Burro Bowl I! 
What are you going to do now?

Alan: I'm going to Disneyworld! Can George come with me?
And Lucy and Hank? And mom, too? Somebody has to take pictures.


  1. Of course I watched not one second of the football SuperBowl but I know the Burro Bowl is much more entertaining!
    The eye-poking-out made me snicker.

  2. The best super bowl game I've ever seen. At least I could follow it.
    They are definitely stars.
    Best always, Sandra

  3. is that eye black underneath lucy's eyes or was her mascara running?

  4. This bowl game was much more interesting than the other one!

  5. Too cute! Would have loved to see pictures of Wynonna rockin it!

  6. Loved the burro super bowl game...much more interesting than the real thing :) If ya need chaperons for the Disney trip...just sayin' :) jeanne from SC

  7. Was Burriweiser the sponsor? Move over Clydesdales, Alan and George are stealing the show!

  8. The outcome of that game was far more interesting to me than the real Superbowl. :)

    Love how you blacked under Lucy's eyes. :)

  9. Didn't watch the Super Bowl but did look up the Clydesdale commercial which I usually like. This year it sort of sucked eggs your Burro Bowl was much more entertaining.

    NOW THAT is entertaining, would watch this show anytime. I also noticed Lucy's blackened eye's...did you put her in to play??? What a great way to start the day. Hugs

  11. Yay! Alan won! Next year we must see the halftime show, as well. This game was much more entertaining than the other one with people getting hurt and stupid commercials (although I did like the Doritos commercials.)

  12. I am in hysterics! This is so great. I'll be coming back to this one for a good laugh when I need it.

  13. This is even better than the Puppy Bowl! Thank you for your excellent play by play, too.

  14. Hey! I just found a secret Internet video of Wynonna's half-time wardrobe malfunction! No wonder you didn't post any pictures of it. It was a quick slip of the bustier. Leave it to her adoring fans to catch it with cell phone videos.

    I love the Burro Bowl!! I hope it comes back for next year. I can't believe I missed the halftime show featuring the Princess.

    The gang needs a larger ball to play with. Just imagine the bowl games!

  16. LOL You realy got me with this one!

  17. Oh, they're SO cute!!! I'm smiling and laughing. They're just adorable. :)

    I'm telling you.... need to get Jolly Ball endorsement!!!! Priceless captions and LOVE Lucy's eye details!

  19. Alan was truly a winner! I watched the Super bowl, Puppy bowl & have now seen the Super Burro Brothers bowl!

  20. That's it, I'm going to the burro bowl next year!

  21. I think your post should be featured at next year's Super Bowl, along with all of the clever ads!
