Who Had More Luck In Europe? Jacksonville Jaguars Vs. The Griswolds

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.

Face Of The Organization
It was Blaine Gabbert. Now it’s Chad Henne. I couldn’t pick either out of a lineup.
Winner Pre-cranky old man, post-butthead Chevy Chase
Before Making The Trip To Europe
Have lost every game so far this year, often in embarrassing fashion.
Winner Somehow survived the Walley World debacle without so much as a lawsuit. Er. Spoilers, I guess?
Once They Got There?
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.
Winner Got caught in an endless loop around Big Ben and Parliament.
And Then?
Reportedly, got into a fistfight with a bunch of locals. And lost. Badly.
Winner Destroyed Stonehenge.
And After That?
Practiced in preparation for...a bye week! A merciful bye week!
Winner Got to hang out in Paris.

The Winner Is

Winner The Griswolds
5 out of 5

With a PERFECT SCORE of 5-0, the Griswolds win! Meaning the Jaguars STILL haven’t scored a victory this year. Neither against hooligans in the UK, nor against the fictional family of Chevy Chase. Yee-ouch.
