t's almost here, another Turkey Bowl. This years Bowl promises to be as exciting as ever as the Blue Jell-O's attempt to take back the Mary Poquette award after three years with out it.
It's no secret that the Hobart Blue Jell-O's want that trophy back. With the Jell-O's star player Willie Cornelius a.k.a. "The Bus" playing at partial capacity for a couple of years due to injuries received while playing semi pro ball for the M&M Timber Jacks, the team has not been able to turn the corner to outscore the Oneida Red Gobblers. This year though if Cornelius stays healthy the Gobblers could be in for a fight as the hungry team may take them down.
This year the Blue Jell-O's also have another tool in their arsenal. Eileen "Trixie" Sobieck has been ordered by the XPFL Commissioner to cheer for the

Blue Jell-O's. This order by the Commissioner has never been given to any cheerleader before, but with Sobieck's overbearing tendencies he felt that the extra push would be good for the Jell-O's and might just be the thing they need to push them over the top.

Guests are already making travel plans to attend the game and color announcer Dave Poquette is
planning to leave his home state of Tennessee on Saturday morning the weekend before turkey day. Dave will be bringing his special friend Betsy Glover along who is eager to witness the football extravaganza she has heard about and seen so much media coverage of on the KAMR. Glover a retired high
school girls sports coach is taking a special interest in the game and hopes to pick up some tips to take back home to her girls that she
coaches in the Hopkinsville Kentucky area. Even though since retirement she only coaches part time she says she can still put good information to use and that's what she hopes to get from the Turkey Bowl.
There has been no word from the Purshocks, and even though Steve can't wait to play in the bowl games they usually don't show up two years in a row leading us to believe that since they were here last year they will not be this year.
Meal planning for the event is usually left to the lady of the house at the Sobieck home Eileen "Trixie" Sobieck so if there is questions regarding what to bring call her if you have her number to find out what to bring.
New this year will be a couple of sound components and horn speakers purchased with the money from the raffle. It should also be noted that these items will stay with the Turkey Bowl and who ever takes over the event after the current staff is unable to do it any more will have these items at their disposal. Money from the raffle also funds the gift cards for the half time games and in the past has gone to pay for some of the expenses supplies associated with the general party put on by the Sobieck's.
