Schlop wins!

Post by Shnoodles »

Wow what an exciting World Cup finale!

Argentina was up 2-0 in the first half, but in the last 10 minutes France got 2 goals to send it to overtime. Messi scored in overtime but then France tied it again with Mbappe getting a hat trick (that means scoring 3 goals, and doesn't involve an actual hat btw). This led to penalty kicks where Argentina came out on top.

Congrats to Messi who was able to win it all in his final World Cup game, and also to Schlop who will get a McFlurry!

Whew, good thing we have 4 years to recover from such an epic game before the next World Cup!
In the SHNOOD!

Snuper Bowl 2023

Post by Snuffles »

Tomorrow is the big game and already there is a building sense of excitement among all us bears. Rumors are that Lee has procured us bears a feast of epic proportions - I even heard mentions of puffs, poppers and pickles!

Peaches and Sneeches have settled on a friendly wager - Peaches picked KC to score first while Sneeches picked the Eagles to score first. Usually the Eagles take a while to show up since first Gandalf has to send a moth to them, so that could be good for Peaches.

Also RiRi is performing at the half so I know I will be boogying down!

A Snuper Bowl to remember

Post by Snuffles »

Sorry this post is over a month late - but us forest bears had a Snuper Bowl for the ages back in February.

Lee scoured every corner of the cabin to make sure every bear would be in attendance. I'm not sure where the turtle came from but Duddles was quite happy to nap on his back.

Image

Lee provided a smorgasbord of deliciousness that accomodated for all the peculiar food preferences of us bears. Check it out:

Image

The bowl in the lower right is cheese puffs and the small bowl above the hummus was mini pickles for PB.
Duddles was particularly excited about his Swiss Cake rolls.

Here is us bears in front of the feast!

Then we remembered we had to make room for Lee on the couch:

Image

Schlop was ready for the game!

It turns out the Eagles scored first - so Sneeches won the bet, congrats Sneeches!

2nd half schloppers

Post by Snuffles »

Oh I forgot that there was also a special surprise treat for the 2nd half - jalapeno poppers!

Lee is the best Snuper Bowl chef!

Schlop Madness

Post by Snuffles »

Today is the final game of March Madness and there is much excitement because Nibs has picked UConn to win it all - and if they do that means Nibs wins the bracket challenge and the coveted McFlurry! Nibs usually favors Villanova but this year they didn't even make the tournament. If the Huskies win it all I wonder if Nibs will switch over his allegiance to them in future years?

Exciting!

Nibs the bracketologist

Post by Snuffles »

Congrats to Nibs who picked the UConn Huskies to win it all - and they did in dominant fashion - San Diego State was barely an inconvenience.

We've also discovered that back in 2011 NIbs also successfully predicted UConn to win it all - so Nibs has a long history of prognosticating the Huskies to victory.

Bears are also buzzing about the procurement of An Actual McFlurry to celebrate sometime this week!

To the victor goes the McFlurry

Post by Snuffles »

It actually happened, y'all!

Nibs got a bonafide McFlurry to celebrate his amazing March Madness victory:

It seems that in the interim between our last actual McFlurry sighting McDonald's has shrunken the size of the treat. But word on the bed is that this McFlurry tasted better than ever!

Fuzzah for Nibs!
