As I'm sure most of you
that visit this site and watch the show are doing, you're not seeing
this until after the biggest event of the year is all done. But
let's see how much of the Super Bowl XLVI vibe makes its way into
our FGN arena tonight. So grab whatever chips and salsa you have
left, and let's play!
JORDAN (ping ponger, working hard at
JOSHUA (barking out orders to exercise)
DAYNA (closet dentist)
MICHAEL (a choir director who's a liiiitle off key)
hockey player, and his own biggest comedy fan)
TAYLOR (always investigating)
MISSI (family photos always on display)
TOM (furniture making master)
We've got $10,000 up for grabs for
one of these families. Can one of them find it? Can "I" find it?
SONIC WHAMMY'S PREDICTION: TRAIN
But whether they find it or not, the winners are off to Jamaica.
Cranium Brain Break: Trash the Host
Jordan's family hits their first one early, and pull away quickly to
a 4-0 lead, ultimately winning it 7-5.
JORDAN'S CARD: WHEELBARROW
DYLAN'S CARD: BATTLESHIP
Interesting, never seen the kids pick the extreme ends of the order
to lead off.
We're playing on a different green field here on Super Bowl weekend.
Jordan has elected to go second, so Dylan and Taylor hop into the field
to lead off.
DYLAN'S CATEGORY: CAMPING
Flashlight, Fishing pole, Campfire, Backpack, Canteen, Picnic table,
Lantern, Pocketknife, Compass, Blanket
TOTAL: 100 points, TIME: 1:22
Setting the bar early today. Can Jordan's family beat it?
JORDAN'S CATEGORY: KITCHEN
Pan, Grapes, Fork, Blender, Apples, Coffeemaker, Hand mixer, Pie,
TOTAL: 100, TIME LEFT: 0:32
Wow, they were just on fire. And the kids didn't have to roll too far
from center, the images were just popping in.
JORDAN'S FAMILY WINS: A Boomers gift card
JORDAN'S CARD: BOOT
BOP IT! BOPTAGON
Another Super Bowl reference for me, since there's a lot of bopping
happening out in Indy while this is going on.
1) Taylor AND Joshua (Rotated on a Reverse)
2) Jordan (Rotated on a Reverse)
3) Dayna (Slow on the Whack)
4) Tom AND Dylan (Reversed in a Rotate, and Tom is met with a big hug by
5) Missi (Fell asleep on Kick It)
JORDAN'S FAMILY WINS: A Samick Greg Bennett guitar
JORDAN'S CARD: SOCCER BALL
TWISTER LIGHTS OUT
I can only imagine that the only thing more colorful during the big
game will be Madonna's halftime show, but you can have that.
First, the kids round. Jordan had trouble repositioning himself and put
his hand down on a dot that went away. Then, Joshua tried to avoid
stepping on a vanishing dot and left his foot hanging in the air. Big no
no there, so Dylan sweeps the first round.
Now for the parents, and this was a weird round. First, Dayna drops out
on a right hand green spin, and everyone's already there. She failed to
move to a new dot, so she's out. While that was going on, it's not until
the next spin, spin number TWELVE, before we get a right foot spin.
Missi's right foot gets caught later, and big man Michael belly flops
right after. As everyone helps him up, Dylan's family celebrates the
DYLAN'S FAMILY WINS: A Photowow gift card
DYLAN'S CARD: HAMBURGER
TROUBLE POP QUIZ
The Pop-O-Matic Bubbles sound like
fireworks, maybe? *shrug*
We get a nice back and forth to start, including Dayna bumping Tom back
a space at midfield. After that, it's all Jordan, as Dayna makes it home
on the next move and Michael hops in not long after.
JORDAN'S FAMILY WINS: A Pirate's Dinner Adventure
JORDAN'S CARD: SODA
Jordan's gonna go second for the first
frame. Tom heads down to collect the pins.
TOM: 34456 > 44456 > 13444 (TRIPS)
MICHAEL: 11145 > 11136 > 11115 (QUADS)
Interesting move to sack the small straight on Dylan's family's part.
DAYNA: 11222 (FULL HOUSE)
MISSI: 34556 > 34566 > 34566 (SMALL STRAIGHT)
THIS time, they try for the large straight, and the 2 just isn't there.
JORDAN'S FAMILY WINS: A Stiga ping pong table
JORDAN'S CARD: HAT
MONOPOLY CRAZY CASH MACHINE
Well, some Super Bowl stories are written in the stars. The favorite
that seems destined to win, the underdog you can't help but root for.
With Jordan holding a 5-2 lead in the cards, we know who's who.
Jordan will lead.
SOCCER BALL: $380
Other than that Boot, it was nearly all lowballs. That could make things
very interesting if one of Dylan's 2 cards holds two grand. Did he find
a big one for the Hail Mary throw?
WINNERS: JORDAN'S FAMILY
Michael carries Todd on his own trip around the circle in celebration.
They're going to Jamaica, the Giants are celebrating by the time I've
written this. And the big money was...
BIG MONEY CARD: CAR (or is it the RACE CAR, as the graphic shows an
Indy-style car. Heh, one last reference to today.)
