Adidas is Celebrating THE WATERBOY's 20th Anniversary with Mud Dogs Football Gear
It’s been 20 years since Adam Sandler’s sports comedy The Waterboy was released in theaters. It’s not Sandler’s best work, but when it first came out it was an enjoyable movie. In case you need a reminder of what the film is about, here’s the synopsis:
Raised by his overprotective mother, Helen (Kathy Bates), Bobby Boucher Jr. (Adam Sandler) is the water boy for a successful college football team coached by Red Beaulieu (Jerry Reed). When Beaulieu fires Bobby, he takes up the same position for a losing rival team, led by despairing Coach Klein (Henry Winkler). After witnessing Bobby beat up a player who teased him too much, Klein adds him to the roster as a linebacker. Soon, Klein's players are championship contenders.
Yes, the main character taps into the rage of being bullied and uses it to destroy his opponents on the football field. Well, Adidas is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the film by selling some limited edition football gear inspired by the South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs.
If you’re a fan of the film and are looking to display that fandom in ways you never thought you’d see, Adidas will have an SCLSU jersey for $120 with the name of Bobby Boucher on the back and a patch celebrating their participation in the championship Bourbon Bowl game. There’s also a varsity jacket inspired by Coach Klein (Henry Winkler) for $100, an SCLSU hat for $30, and a water bottle for $20.
All of this stuff is currently available to buy on the Adidas website.
