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

Tale Of The Tape: Football vs. Futbol
With the World Cup still going strong and the NFL just weeks away from getting started it seemed like a fun idea to compare the two sports that share the same name…sort of. From the global “futbol” to the American “football” these sports are two of the most popular in their own right. As somewhat of a disclaimer I will add that this Tale of the Tape is being written by an American, though I am a big soccer fan. That being said, let’s start the debate.
Tale Of The Tape: World Cup Vs. Olympics
There are very few worldwide occurrences that captivate fans of every nation the way that the Olympics and World Cup have proven to do.

With the World Cup still going strong and the Olympics fresh in the minds of fans across the globe, let’s see how they match up when placed side-by-side.
