Cars For Sale Pre-Games with Cornhole

While the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers were preparing to play in Super Bowl LVIII, employees at Cars For Sale prepared in their own way: by splitting into 38 teams and competing in the third annual Bean Bag Tournament! To make it even more festive, everyone was dressed in their Cars For Sale jerseys or sporting the colors of their favorite football teams.

With the largest number of teams so far, 76 participants were paired up with randomly selected teammates on the day of the tournament. Before any big game begins, though, one has to start with the snacks. There were plenty of cheese puffs, different flavors of popcorn, and varieties of Chex mix to go around.

Then, the first teams started the tournament as coworkers (and, in this case, competitors) watched on. Six teams played at the same time, providing plenty of bag-throwing action to watch. Some players considered it a controversial decision, but bags that bounced on the ground and then up onto the board were counted.

Each of the 38 teams tried to beat their opponents to the game-ending 21-point mark as the single-elimination tournament progressed. Throughout the afternoon, Cars For Sale team members went back and forth between their workstations and the cornhole court. After about two-and-a-half hours of teams being eliminated, referees marking scores, high fives, handshakes, and even victory dances, it was time for the championship round.

Preston S. and Max F. were set to compete against Nikole K. and Brian V. This wasn’t Preston’s first time competing in the bean bag tournament. In fact, not only did Preston’s team win the championship in 2022, but Preston also competed in the final round of the 2023 tournament, finishing in second place.

A lot of bags flew through the air, but Max and Preston sank shot after shot, ultimately landing them the victory in a close-scoring game. They took home the win, and everyone walked away with some fun memories.

My confidence going into the final round was pretty high. I respected our competition and knew they had some talent, but the way my teammate and I were playing, it was hard not to have some confidence. The overall experience was awesome, it’s a great way to meet new co-workers and have fun together on a more personal level as opposed to just a work setting.
