It's that time of the year. That time of the year where our favorite German clubs are given rubber duck brand ambassadors and dropped into a whirlpool in the name of pride, victory, and glory. The Bunducksliga is upon us.
For the uninitiated: the Bunducksliga is a rubber duck racing competition organized by the Bundesliga's media arm. The race had its inaugural season in the year of our Lord two thousand and fifteen, with Hertha Berlin bagging the title over Bayern Munich in a photo finish. Dortmund finished third after winning their qualifying group and leaving Schalke in the (quite literal) bubbles.
As an aside, the Bunducksliga competition is hysterical if you think about someone trying this in America. Take out the British accent, slap on some MLS logos, and just wait for the hate mail to roll in. But that's not the Bunducksliga. The Bunducksliga is sacred, and we will slake our thirst on the blood and tears of our enemies in 2016 WHEN BORUSSIA DORTMUND LAYS WASTE TO THE FIELD OF GELATINOUS IMPOSTERS AND CRETINS WITH OUR GLORIOUS...uh, here's our rubber duck, Nobby.
Yeah, it's silly. But it's also plenty of fun. It looks like they might even be dropping the ducks into a creek this year, so that's exciting. Tune in to check out Nobby take on the field of competitors IN A BRUTAL DEATHMATCH THE LIKES OF WHICH MIGHT CRUSH ERSTWHILE HEROS AND TITANS! HE LIVES; HE DIES; HE LIVES AGAIN! NOBBY!
