Brinky Bowl Champion

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 08:43

Nicole E. is the 2013 Brinky Bowl Champion; it’s taken me awhile to get with the feting because the outcome of the Superbowl was so disappointing.  When the lights went out at the Superdome I thought my Superbowl pick–a giant sinkhole and/or cosmic vortex–was about consume both teams and win the game by default.  The result would have been a Harbaughless world and a Brinky Bowl victory for me, so you can understand how it’s taken me a few days to get over my disappointment.  The final standings are as follows:

#1 – Nicole (39 points)

#2 – Tara (38)

#3 – Justin (28)

#4 – Jenny (24)

#5 – Lee (23)

#6 – Mario (22)

#7 – Katie (16)

Jenny had the most points among the four Bowlers picking the 49ers, and she would have been the champion had San Francisco won.  I told her that going in, and then she showed up for the kickoff wearing purple.  I’m a man of science and I cannot be swayed by superstitious mysticism; I need evidence.  Jenny wore that stupid purple shirt-thing until the Ravens went up 28-6 and I got mad about it.  After Jenny changed into a red shirt with gold pants, the lights went out and the 49ers went on a run.  So if we’re being scientific about it, Ray Lewis’ god didn’t cause the Ravens to win the Superbowl–Jenny did.  She also caused the blackout in the Superdome.

There’s not an actual Brinky Bowl to award, and I wouldn’t send it to Nicole if there was one, but I didn’t want to just do nothing in the way of feting.  So I looked around my office and the only bowl I have is this one:

bowl 002

There are some leaves in it, plus a glue stick and the Violator.  Feel free to imagine him clapping some of his hands in celebration of Nicole.



  1. You better send me that bowl.

    • Brinky ate one of the leaves; do you still want it?
