Spring games aren’t supposed to be the most serious affairs. While bodies are flying and players on each side want to win at the end of the day everyone returns to the same locker room. For the rest of us, the Spring game provides a quick glance at what the team will look like come September and some newbies who could emerge as potential future stars. The Bearcat Bowl is more an event than a true game as the festivities surrounding it including a youth football minicamp and games for all attendees.
So in the spirit of fun, I’m going to roll out what I hope will be the first of many installments in a segment that I’m sure will appease the alcohol aficionados watching Bearcat Bowl VI. Before we get to the criteria I have admit that I 100% didn’t think of this idea out of the blue. The fellas at Sportspickle who consistently put out extremely hilarious and relevant pieces cooked this up. Here’s their most recent one for the NCAA Tournament.
See? Comedic gold! I’m just adopting the concept for our more Cincinnati Bearcat-centric needs. Even though the Bearcat Bowl won’t be televised you can still do some of these from the stands! I should probably also say that I mean this in complete jest (and love) so don’t take it too seriously. Here we go!
