Fantasy Surfer – Swell’s Company Challenge
The 50th annual Bells Beach Pro is into the elimination rounds, which means the fantasy surfer results test your nerves, and so does the trash talk.
The Game: Pick the highest scoring team of 8 surfers in a given contest on a budget.
The Challenge: Inflict the harshest punishment for the person with the lowest scoring team.
The Swell Fantasy Surfer office competition is not the typical fantasy sports wager. There’s no high-dollar pool, instead we go for humiliation and gut busting bets. It’s usually a damn competitive field since most of us have surfed the spots on the tour, and scores are usually in the 800pt range. This month, some of the boys backed out of the deal due to intensified wagering involving: Beer bonging a Four-Loco out of a odd shaped funnel aka “The Dong-Bong”, and some other side-bets that the dads is the office couldn’t stomach. We saw it fit to keep it filthy as not to look like some gambling sports fanatics.
Here’s three guys’ teams ready to endure the office challenge.
Bill’s Strategy: “Frick.. besides being sexy as hell.. Kelly’s moves are getting better with age.. I mean jimmeny christmas he’s my man!”
Morgan’s Strategy: “My fellow goofy-footers are under-rated at right points. Like Wilco, his blading skills are going to give him the edge”
Dave’s Strategy: “Pick surfers who ride for the event sponsor. Everyone knows they’re in bed with the judges”
Check back after the contest to witness the humiliation. Let us know if you want into our league, we may open up the challenge to our fans.
