Hey gang! Let’s talk about lovable losers. This week, we’d like to compare the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars – a team so far down that some fans are urging for redemption at the hands of Tim Tebow – vs. the Griswold’s, the stars of the Vacation franchise. Both are known for epic fails and international incidents, but which of these two groups had more luck in Europe? Let’s go to the tape.
Tale of the tape
Who Had More Luck In Europe? Jacksonville Jaguars Vs. The Griswolds
|It was Blaine Gabbert. Now it’s Chad Henne. I couldn’t pick either out of a lineup.||Face Of The Organization||Pre-cranky old man, post-butthead Chevy Chase|
|Have lost every game so far this year, often in embarrassing fashion.||Before Making The Trip To Europe||Somehow survived the Walley World debacle without so much as a lawsuit. Er. Spoilers, I guess?|
|Got decimated by the 49ers, 42-10, in front of a UK audience which they’ll be playing in front of for the next 3 years. Y’know. Just in case it becomes their new home in the future. Hypothetically.||Once They Got There?||Got caught in an endless loop around Big Ben and Parliament.|
|Reportedly, got into a fistfight with a bunch of locals. And lost. Badly.||And Then?||Destroyed Stonehenge.|
|Practiced in preparation for...a bye week! A merciful bye week!||And After That?||Got to hang out in Paris.|
The winner is
