Remember the time Bobby Boucher showed up at halftime and the Mud Dogs won the Bourbon Bowl, do ya?
It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 20 years since The Waterboy hit theaters. The sports comedy starring Adam Sandler is such a product of the decade in which it came out as it follows a dimwitted Louisiana college football waterboy named Bobby Boucher who becomes a star football player when he inadvertently taps into the rage that comes from a life of being bullied and tackles the hell out of his opponents.
The folks at the sportswear company Adidas think the movie deserves a special celebration by debuting limited edition gear inspired by the South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs, the losing team who becomes champions thanks to the fierce tackling of Bobby Boucher. It’s the 20th anniversary, so we can’t hold anything back now.

George Clooney has been named the highest paid actor of 2018, raking in $239 million from June 2017 to June 2018. And it’s all thanks to tequila.
