Video: Lescott, Milner square off in Super Bowl crossbar challenge

Posted by Chris Wright

As far as we can tell, it was something called the Super Bowl Sunday night, which Beyonce apparently won.

To celebrate, Manchester City held their very own American football crossbar challenge at the Carrington Enormodome which saw Joleon Lescott and James Milner square off in a fight to the (sudden) death, chucking American footballs at the bar from varying distances - all watched over by authentically-dressed referee Micah Richards...

Footballers in shoulder pads and little lycra tights will never not be funny, but just think: one of the participants could have been Mario had the Super Bowl come a week or two earlier.
