John Madden just holding court at annual Madden/Mariucci charity bocce tournament
So I’ve never been able to get in on this tournament but it is the premier, big swinging dick charity tournament in the sports world. Everyone has golf tournaments, nobody has bocce tournaments and nobody has John Madden. Just a bear of man out there to explain you gotta throw this ball and get it as close as you can to this small ball and you might have to knock these balls out of the way. I’d easily pay someone a grand to film John Madden explaining the rules of Bocce.
Mooch and Madden have been at it with this tournament since Mariucci was the 49ers coach back in the day. Since then, it’s been quite the event with all the stars coming out and being the seasoned bocce aficionado that I am (I play these courts on a quarterly basis), I’m sure we could bring home a title. Check out over the years:
Name another event where you get old guys, Raiders, cheerleaders, pizza, nuns and John Madden throwing balls. You can’t.
