Thought we have enough with sports following the end of the 2017-2018 NFL Season from the regular season to getting bumped up an extra one hour and a half following the NFC Divisional between the Saints and the Vikings, the Minnesota Miracle. Turned Massacre in Philadelphia when the Eagles beat them. And beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl. And of course, the Olympics, and now that it’s Spring, NASCAR. You really, really want to have just one Sunday. ONE Sunday where there’s no sports taking over the schedule. Well, looks like we got another one, this time in the Bob’s Burgers universe. This time, taking on the sport called Ga-Ga ball. And no, it has nothing to do with Lady Gaga. And I don’t know what this sport is and about. So does like almost much of the fandom. Until earlier this week, before the episode where we got this video.
Another difference is on what to do with the ball. Like I said earlier, Dodgeball has throwing. But in Ga-Ga ball, you slap the ball. Yes, slapping is involved in this. It’s like kicking the football or throwing the baseball to the pitcher. And the elimination process is different as well when it comes to the opponent and the ball. In Dodgeball, you hit the opponent anywhere. I mean anywhere. Hell, even in the weak spot. And I think you know what I’m talking about. Where in Ga-Ga ball, the knee is the weak spot. You get hit in the knee, you’re out. Knee and below. Down to the foot.
And of course, like dodgeball, the winning process is different. Where in Dodgeball, if the opposite team is out of members in the ring, your team win. Where in Ga-Ga ball, it’s mostly on who’s the last one standing. It’s kinda like in tournaments. Like in the Super Bowl, most recently, the Philadelphia Eagles became the last one standing after beating the New England Patriots. Or in World Series where the Houston Astros became the last one standing after beating the Los Angeles Dodgers. Hell, the Battle of the Week Voting Tournament I ran, currently in its sixth time running, the character of Milo Murphy from Milo Murphy’s Law became the last one standing after beating Joseph Joestar from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. So technically, it’s battle for survival.
Everyone didn’t even leave the ring. People are enjoying this. My freaking god, this is a trend. This is a trend now. It’s every single internet challenge whenever it pops up on social media, mostly YouTube or Twitter, and everyone want to partake it. From the Cinnamon Challenge to the Dab to the Mannequin Challenge to a stupid idea of a challenge called the Tide Pod Challenge. Seriously, people? What the hell is wrong with y’all? Anyway, the kids in the school got excited. Everyone haven’t left the spot in like minutes. I mean fuck…
Gene got upset over this and of course, the people who partake in the Ga-Ga ball trend for letting this happen. And of course, he stormed off despite he tried to interrupt Frond talking to the students but got ignored. Louise and Tina would cheer Gene up over what happened but of course, more rounds! But it looks like Gene may not be alone after all in the anti-Ga-Ga ball ideal.
