Paper Football Challenge: School Style
The same day that Char and I filmed the arm wrestling match used in our hilarious game show parody entitled You Got Beat By A Girl, we held another competition.
You’ve seen our Paper Football Championship Bowl Games… they are all big productions that rival the Super Bowl itself in competitiveness and entertainment! We’ve had fans comment to us to tell us they enjoyed our Bowl Game much more than the Big Game. That’s quite a compliment! But while we’re excited that you have all been highly entertained, there’s something of a personal score to settle in these games that hasn’t really been addressed… until now.
You see (as most of our fans already know) I played paper football a lot during my old school days growing up. Certainly hundreds of games if not thousands over the years. When I introduced Char to the game not long after we were married, I casually informed her that I never lost the game… not one time. Now, I didn’t say this as a boast nor did I say it with the intention of poking fun at the fact that Char had never played the game. I only spoke it as an undeniable truth of life. A fact. That’s all.
But Char (being Char) took that as a challenge. We played paper football a handful of times and I won each time (of course)… until one night when she shocked me with a 56-17 victory. Her first win, my first defeat, and the start of something big with The Traveling Twosome. These matches were played on large tables (much larger than a school desk) and we used those experiences as a springboard to create our Paper Football Championship Bowl Games on even larger, professionally designed tables. The productions were big… and the games were more competitive than either of us imagines. To my surprise, Char has won every time we’ve played since handing me my first defeat. Three Championship Bowl Games, two Traveling Twosome Olympics events, and she has remained the Paper Football Champion.
But… I began thinking. Our large scale matches look nothing like the game I played as a student. Back then, we played for three or four minutes a game between classes on a small classroom desk or lunch table. So what if Char had won our Bowl Games! She still hasn’t beaten me playing the way we played back in school! So we had this question hanging over us… had Char and I known each other growing up as school mates, would she have been the one and only person who could have knocked me off my pedestal? Or would I prove that playing old school, I was still the best?
