Sports Sense

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

As many of you have probably guessed by now, I get all my news from the Wrecks you send in. Now, is this:

Efficient?
No.
Current?
HAH! Uh, no.
Entertaining?
Yooouuu betcha.

Case in point: I believe that football-related thing I mentioned before has finally happened. And it's called...

The Superboll?

No, the Supper Bowl. Or...

Super Bowel? Hey, I kinda like the sound of that. Now, all it needs is...

This! Woohoo!

Go, super bowel! Go go go!!


Ok, maybe we should just call it "The Game."

Perfect.

From all this Wreckage, I also know there were two teams involved in "the game."

First we have the Colts, who are big Katamari fans:

(You know, Katamari? The game with the giant tube-head guys? Aw, check out this cute Katamari wedding cake; you'll see what I mean.)

And then there are the Saints, aka "the team with the logo most likely to be butchered by cupcake cakes [patooie!!]":

I think we both get the point here, don't you?

Hey, look, a CCC with appeal!

Yep, that banana is a peelin' from both ends.


Deborah C., Jenny D., Writer Girl, John W., Anony M., Jack O., C.M., & Sara W., orange you glad I only used one banana pun?

What a pity. The Supper Bowl cake decorator actually did a nice job freehanding the Colts logo.

wv: caphyd. Predatory cake bugs. The caphyds are infesting my buttercream roses.

Gary said...

A "Superboll" would be a huge pod of cotton.
"The Game" appears to have a "Superbowel" (Go! Go! Go!) around the outside of the cookie, or pie, or whatever that is.
The Supper Bowl is what my cats eat from.

Super bowel LOL!

The Shitty Astrologer said...

Uh-oh, "Super Bowel"? Don't touch that cake kiddies unless you want to go charging to the bathroom like a quarterback...

Spicy said...

OH GOD.

We all just lost the game!

Don't know what it is? Now you're playing.

Super Bowel is pretty hilarious.
And the messed up fleur de lis are pretty entertaining as well.

Jill of Ark said...

Thanks, Jen! If you put it *that* way, I might actually be inclined to take interest in sports.

Anonymous said...

I love the copious use of doilies for the Saints' fleur de lis. It makes it so dressed up. And festive. And feminine. "And don't forget your 'kerchif when you are out slammin' the other team boys!"

Amanda Mac said...

I cannot quit laughing at the "super bowel - go go go" cake!

deckardcanine said...

I was going to suggest that "The Game" could refer to the rapper, but nowadays he just goes by "Game."

The Katamari football player is the funniest to me.

Homebody said...

Superbowel? Maybe the wreckorator has a gluten intolerance...

Early Modern Mom said...

Holy moly. Go Super Bowel indeed. What a crappy cake.

deckardcanine said...

BTW, TLC has announced a reality series called "Cupcake Sisters," set at Georgetown Cupcake. I anticipate plenty of CCCs on the air.

WV: geadmane = one of the Knights of the Round Table, I think.

Unfortunately I am having a hard time lately seeing some of the images - they're just appearing as white squares. I used to be able to see them all and I haven't changed anything at my end.

Is there something I can do so that I don't feel so left out?

Amy in StL said...

Have you changed something about how you post pictures? I can only see about half the pictures in this post. Specifically I can't see 1, 3, 4, and 5.

Super bowel...go go go....OMG! I can't stop laughing!

Several years ago, I ran into a convenience store for something no doubt of the unhealthy variety and was greeted with a large handwritten poster advertising "Supper Bowel" supplies. Yep. Both words. I haven't been able to think of Super Bowl seriously since.

Also, *squee* for Beautiful Katamari!

Amanda said...

I think next year I'm cheering for the New Orleans Bananas. I even wrote a cheer:
Go Saints, we love you all! Make the other guys slip and fall!
.. rah rah rah!

WV: steepre -- STEEPRE BOWL CAKES!

Lorraine said...

That cake with the distended colon that you showed us the other day was a "Super Bowel." How about some Mardi Gras sunday sweet photos? Love your blog!!

Blue Jean said...

That's a pity, considering that the Colts' horseshoe logo is probably one of the few things that would make a great CCC. (I know, a great CCC is a contradiction in terms, like "jumbo shrimp", but still...)

Anonymous said...

The Saints' logo, which should be a fleur-de-lis, looks like the bottom of a lizard!

laurapatt said...

I love CW more every time there's a Katamari reference. Naaaaaaaaa na na na na na naa naa KATAMARI DAMACY!

Anonymous said...

The last one looks like a run over lizard. lol

Anonymous said...

Was that first cake actually meant for a Rose Bowl party? WTH??

Anonymous said...

....sure envy you Americans your superbowels....

jeff.w.mcclung said...

Sorry, I also can't see images 1, 3, 4, and 5. I tried clicking around to give them a chance to refresh, but they won't.

LaurenH said...

Forget the wrecks, is that first one seriously cut into four even pieces? Because that is my kind of cake... :)

Anonymous said...

Gee, thanks, Jen.

It was a perfectly innocent post until you made us lose THE GAME.

Awesome. :3

Bilinda said...

Thanks for the laughs, for the bazillionth time!!!

Lawny said...

Awwww I lost the game :(

Linda J-H said...

About the photos - when I get a stubborn one, I click on the big blank space and it either appears or I go to a separate page where it shows all the (sometimes gory) detail. Usually when I hit the return arrow, all the photos load.

Anonymous said...

I looooved the Katamari reference!!

Stephanie said...

I love the unintentional pun on the "Superbowel - Go! Go! Go!" cake. Too funny!

strista said...

Hey,
Are you guys aware CakeWrecks is one of the features on a MSNBC.com piece titled "The Internet will watch you FAIL" today?

I like the Super Bowel mispelling better than the Supper Bowl. I have no idea where they get the e in bowl..but two pp's are more understood.

Anonymous said...

That Super Bowel cake? Was from my store. I did not submit it, but I love that someone did.

denestria said...

Supper Bowl sounds like a lot more fun than the real thing to me. I hate football. I live in TX so don't tell anyone I said that. They would hang me from the tallest tree.

The Saints logo looks like a cave pictogram of a lizard.

CatLadyDiary.com said...

Oh my gosh, I laughed and laughed! Thank you.

Jerry said...

I snickered up til "Go, go Super Bowel". Then I lost it. That odd brown looking thing in the middle didn't help.

Jen said...

Don't worry, Denestria, there are others like you. I also avoid foosball like the devil. >.>


And I can't believe I lost the game because of a cake.

catchat105 said...

Cake #2 is one Snoopy would love!
It's suppertime! It's suppertime! It's suppertime! It's suppertime!

Ash said...

So, my daughter wanders over while I'm looking at #6, the Katamari one, takes one quick glance and exclaims, "That's not a cake!" Even a 5 year old can recognize that a CCC is not a cake. :)

tjbmurph said...

I see a children's potty training book in the works:
"GO SUPER BOWEL, GO!"

Stacey said...

Gah! That cookie cake just made me loose The Game. And I was doing SO well.

Culinarychiq said...

Someone needs to school the first wreckerator in the various football bowls ie. the Super Bowl and the Rose Bowl are NOT interchangeable! There are NO ROSES or flowers of ANY kind to EVER be placed on a Super Bowl cake:-P It's a crying shame about the first "super bowel" cake. Despite the spelling mistake (and the fact that the whole thing is crooked) it could've been a pretty cake:(

Finally, ya learn something new everyday! I wasn't aware that New Orleans was Creole for banana;)

BADKarma! said...

One must perforce assume that having a "super-bowel" is, in fact, a "VVGT", given the number of wreckorators who felt it to be an important element in a cake dedicated to a football game. Or would that be a "footbowel" game...

Sydney said...

CRRAPPPP!!! That cookie cake made me lose the game!! I was winning for so long!

janet2buns said...

Aren't there any Olympic cake wrecks yet? The Super Bowl is old news....the Olympics is on now!

Anonymous said...

Is any one else wondering what the stringy black frosting is for on "The Game" cookie cake?

Elisabeth Marie said...

"The Game" is kind of funny since "Superbowl" is all Taboo trademarked and such...

Sexy Sadie said...

Super Bowel Go! Go! Go! made me laugh!

Anonymous said...

What does it say at the top of cake #3? Boot Time? Bovt Time?

Suzanne Dargie said...

Superbowel....that's just SO wrong.

Melissa (& Billy) said...

Do you know...that Katamari Colt sort of looks like Peyton Manning? =D Really!

Heheh, I bet some people had a 'super bowel' (or maybe a not-so-super bowel) after eating all that junk food at Superbowl parties! (esp if it included these wrecks)

Pam said...

The Super Bowel...Go Go Go! Mwahahahaha! Still grinning about that one!

Anonymous said...

Okay, the Super Bowel cake (Go go go!) had me guffawing. So so funny.

Bless you boys?!?

Oh no you din't

That's reserved for the 1984 DEETROIT Tigers.

Of course. Why else did you think that Bananas Foster was invented there? ;-)

bwsf said...

LOL they should give spelling tests to people who make these cakes before hiring them.

Caren said...

Bahhhhhhh, the Saints have stolen the 1984 Detroit Tigers slogan. Al Ackerman, where are you when we need you!

Crystal said...

lol. Those are great!

man-nurse said...

Katamari reference? High five! I love it! I still listen to the Katamari soundtrack in my car!

Joe said...

Watch out - That Saints logo is a mosasaur!

When I read the Super Bowel go go go cake, I nearly dropped a donk in my pants! (Trannslation: I nearly pooped my pants) LOLOMGROFNP (ROFNP= Rolling on the floor nearly pooping!)
