    Marbula 1 2020

    Yes folks, it's almost time for the most important marble-based sporting event of the year: the 2020 Marbula One season
    16 of the most famous marble teams will battle it out over 8 race weekends to decide who will be the Marbula One champions.
    Will it be the O'Rangers? The most popular marble team with their rabid fan base and cries of "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOH". Maybe it'll be perennial bad boys, Team Primary? Or plucky underdogs Team Momo who never really seemed to recover from the devastating injury suffered by team member Momomomo in the 2017 Marbylmpics.
    I will be cheering on top British team the Green Ducks who I have supported since their inception early last year.

    Anyhoo, see the trailer for the forthcoming season.



    A bit of background: somehow the 2019 Marbylmpic Qualifiers were recommended to me by some sort of Youtube algorithm and I clicked on it expecting a load of crap but what I actually got was a strangely addictive channel with incredibly high production values that made me have to support a marble team. Even the wife and kid watch it with me now. This thing is getting big: there are about 700,000 subscribers, a dedicated wiki (https://jellesmarbleruns.fandom.com/...le_League_Wiki) and you can buy team merchandise in the online shop!

    Check out some of the posters you can buy. Pretty damn cool.




    Anyway, pick a team and I'll see you all for the qualifying next Saturday!

    Welcome back marble fans! It's the latest update for Youtube's most exciting sport that only I and possibly Onelasttime give a crap about!

    What a qualifying session! The hosts fail big time, the Marbula One big-Ferrariesque team grabs pole and my own Green Ducks... well, they were a bit disappointing. Plenty of work for them to do tomorrow if they've any chance of winning the inaugural Marbula One Grand Prix!



    Stay tuned for tomorrow's update!!

    Exclamation marks!!!

    Frustrating that the video kept freezing while the commentary continued

    I watched it live (like a true fan does) but just watched the video and seems okay?

    Thrills! Spills! Marbills! What an incredible race. I was on the edge of my seat throughout. There was more overtaking than in an entire season of that lesser sport, Formula One.



    See you all next week marble fans #quackattack
