The NCAA has the College Football Playoff and the National Football League has the Super Bowl, but only Dude Perfect has the Slip’N Slide Football Battle, and it’s a doozy…
SLIP’N SLIDE FOOTBALL BATTLE
The format of the battle was straightforward: after three challenges the player with the most points would be awarded their own giant-sized Topps playing card. First up was the Slip’N Kick in which each of the Dude Perfect crew attempted a field goal from the baby-oil coated Slip’N Slide.
Next up were the Slip’N Catch and Kiddie Pool Minefield events. In the end, Cody Jones 16-point performance in the last challenge was enough to thwart Tyler Toney’s attempt to steal a victory.
Dude Perfect’s crew members each got a giant-sized football card from Topps for their efforts, but you can make your own without getting all wet and slimy with Starr Cards Football Card Maker app.
SLIP’N SLIDE HISTORY
Wham-O’s Slip’N Slide has been around since 1961 when it was invented by Robert Carrier. Billed as “The Original Water Slide”, the toy is suggested for use by kids ages 5 to 12, but in real-world deployment it isn’t unusual to find “kids” five times as old flying down the yellow plastic strip.
