Best Face Lotion with Sunscreen Bowl, Drive By Drive

EltaMD Wins the Coin Toss and Receives

EltaMD wins the coin toss and will receive the opening kickoff in the Best Face Lotion with Sunscreen Bowl.

EltaMD UV Clear Opens Strong with Zinc Oxide

The EltaMD UV Clear coach wants to open the game strong, so he applies his strongest player Zinc Oxide to the first series.

Zinc Oxide has very strong talents in blocking out the Sun.


“Shade” by Caleb Roenigk (CC BY 2.0), via

On the first drive, the EltaMD UV Clear QB goes back to pass, and is practically in the shade from the extreme blocking performed by the offensive line.

This allows Zinc Oxide to check down each read from WR to WR to TE and then a short pass to the RB.  The play goes for 7 yards.

Zinc Oxide then pulls a guard on a counter play to the right side.  The pulling guard provides a barrier from the defense preventing them from causing any abrasions, or even infecting them with poison ivy.  The run goes for 9 yards.

No Bump

With Zinc Oxide not being pregnant (not recommended for a QB), the next several plays run for 3, 5, and 3 yards for another first down.

With the afternoon game having the sun bear down on them, the defense sends in UV Rays to play corner.  But, Zinc Oxide has the answer and is able to shield off UV Rays on a curl route for 15 yards.

Short runs of 2 and 2 yards brings up an important 3rd and 6 yards at the 36 yard line.  Zinc Oxide lines up in the slot and runs a down and out pattern crisscrossing with the outside WR.

The micronized blocking of nano-scale zinc oxide and titanium dioxide provided strong protection in the pocket allowing Zinc Oxide to make the catch for 9 yards.

After runs of 4, 5, and 2 yards, Zinc Oxide tried a fade route on 1st down.  But, fading isn’t a strong suit of Zinc Oxide, and the pass fell harmlessly to the turf.

Recognizing that Zinc Oxide should play to its strengths, Zinc Oxide ran a Z route to effectively bypass the DB on the line of scrimmage, come back to the post, and then out to the corner of the end zone.

The EltaMD UV Clear QB pump fakes on the post part of the route and the defense was soaked up by Zinc Oxide’s move.  On the cut to the corner of the end zone, the QB was able to softly float the ball into a wide open Zinc Oxide for a 16 yard TOUCHDOWN!  The extra point (treatment of minor burns) is GOOD!  EltaMD takes the lead in the Best Face Lotion with Sunscreen Bowl.

Obagi Follows up with Xanthan Gum

Obagi sends in Xanthan Gum, and Xanthan Gum immediately coughs up an interception.

EltaMD Strikes Quick with Octinoxate 

Looking to strike quickly, the EltaMD coach sends in Octinoxate.

Octinoxate brings many talents to the game like being clear (difficult to see in traffic) and protecting the skin from damage.

But, Octinoxate’s “super power” is absorbing UV-B rays from the Sun.

Octinoxate can “take one for the team” when it comes to UV-B hits.  And, on the first drive, Octinoxate starts off with runs of 5, 6, and 7 yards.  In each carry, Octinoxate absorbed hits and bounced off for extra yards.

Octinoxate then mixes up the play calling by running a middle screen.  Defenders were unable to see Octinoxate clearly and the play resulted in a big gain of 24 yards.

The EltaMD coach decides to play it safe (Octinoxate is considered a safe up to 7.5% levels) and tries to score fast to not keep Octinoxate on the field (skin) for too long.  Octinoxate goes deep shielding of UV-B defenders and catches a 45 yard post pattern for a TOUCHDOWN!  The extra point (can reduce the appearance of scars) is GOOD!  EltaMD extends the lead in the Best Face Lotion with Sunscreen Bowl.

Obagi’s Zinc Oxide Responds

As the Obagi coach watches the EltaMD’s Zinc Oxide dominate the last drive, he knows his Zinc Oxide is even stronger.

Obagi’s Zinc Oxide goes by Zoey to his teammates.  Zoey opens the drive with powerful runs of 12 and 13 yards.  The EltaMD defensive tackles UVA and UVB are completely obliterated on the runs freeing Zoey to shine into the secondary.

Zoey follows up the runs with a slant pass for 20 yards and a curl for 15.  Zoey is just too strong for these EltaMD defensive backs as it takes several of them to bring Zoey down.

The Obagi coach know Zoey’s strength, proceeds with a sun screen pass up the middle again.  Zoey is able to rumble into the end zone for a 20 yard catch and run for a TOUCHDOWN!  The extra point (FDA approval) is GOOD!  Obagi finally gets on the board in the Best Face Lotion with Sunscreen Bowl.

EltaMD Slips Cyclomethicone into the Game

After a kickoff return back to the 25 yard line, EltaMD goes with Cyclomethicone to try and extend the lead.

Cyclomethicone bring many talents to the EltaMD offense:

  • A conditioning agent
  • Solvent
  • Humectant (prevents a loss of moisture)
  • Carrying agent
  • Viscosity controlling agent
  • Unique fluidity that makes it easily spreadable
  • Silky & slippery (making it hard to be tackled)
  • Mild water repellent (keeps liquid defenses off balance)
  • Fills in wrinkles and lines for a temporary effect (keeps him young)
  • Delivers nutrients quickly to the skin

Cyclomethicone opens the drive from the 25 at RB and cuts to the short flat on the right to catch a pass.  Slipping past the DB, Cyclo (his nickname to teammates) flows upstream before he’s ushered out of bounds after a 11 yard gain.

Cyclo then run around right end and is able to control the viscosity of the defense before gaining another 9 yards.

Just Get Points on the Board

The EltaMD QB drops back on the next play and scans the defense.  Stepping up to avoid the defensive rush, the EltaMD QB spots Cyclo on the right sideline for an 18 yard completion.

From the shotgun, Cyclo receives a handoff for 2 yards.  Cyclo follows that up with slant route that fills up the defensive wrinkle on the left side for a 13 yard gain.

As EltaMD’s offense is starting to gain rhythm, Cyclo is called on for three straight runs.  On the first run Cyclo slips defenders over and over again and dives for a first down at the 12 yard line (10 yard gainer).

Quickly EltaMD lines up and hikes the ball hoping to catch the defense offsides, but the defense is ready for the carrying agent play and stuffs it for only a 2 yard gain.

From the shotgun again, Cyclo is given a draw play, the the defense is again not fooled and stuffs the play for only 1 yard.

On 3rd down and 7 yards to go, the EltaMD QB draws a quick slant for Cyclo, but Cyclo is sandwiched by two defenders and the ball slips out of his hands.

On 4th down, the FG unit is sent out to have Cyclo to kick a 27 yard FG.  The kick is up and GOOD!

Obagi’s Sorbitan Ester is Thrown into the Mix

After the kickoff leaves the end zone for a touchback, the Obagi coach decides to mix in Sorbitan Ester.

Sorbitan Ester bring emulsifying properties to the game and tries to mix it up.

Starting a little slow, Sorbitan Ester tries to run up the middle between the EltaMD’s defensive lineman oil and water.  But, the mixing goes slow for gains of only 2 and 1 yards.

On 3rd down and long, Sorbitan Ester lines up wide, but being used to mixing it up, this play is a bad decision by the coaching staff, and Sorbitan Ester can’t complete the short pass across the middle.

On 4th down, Sorbitan Ester kicks the ball away 48 yards in the air (a 4.6 second hang time) out kicking the coverage team.  EltaMD’s returner returns the punt 19 yards to the 48 yard line.

Niacinamide Sent in to Clean Things Up

The EltaMD coach likes the momentum of the game as he sends in Niacinamide to try and push the game out of reach.

Niacinamide, or also known as B3, has been shown in testing to help with high cholesterol.

Niacinamide hangs around with:

  • Antioxidants
  • Vitamins
  • Anti-Irritants
  • Cell-Communicating Ingredients

B3 is big in the anti-aging community. It’s going to be tough for Obagi to slow down this juggernaut. Especially with the short field

On first down at the 48 yard line, Niacinamide lines up wide right and runs a fade route up the sidelines. The EltaMD QB throws the ball up to Niacinamide and he leaps up to catch the ball while falling out of bounds. Niacinamide is somehow able to keep both toes in bounds for the 20 yard gain.

The Obagi defense then keys on Niacinamide to try and stop him. On a handoff, the Obagi defense swarms Niacinamide for a 1 yard loss.

The Drive Stalls

Then, Niacinamide takes a handoff and runs to the left side. The Obagi defense is ready this time and has Niacinamide cut off. Niacinamide turns back and tries to escape the defense, but is tripped up trying to run backwards around the Obagi defender. The play loses 9 yards.

On 3rd down and a mile (20 yards), the EltaMD QB lines up in the shotgun. Niacinamide lines up in the slot and moves down field as the ball is snapped. After about 15 yads, Niacinamide cuts back to receive the pass. After the catch, Niacinamide tries to elude the Obagi secondary, but they are able to bottle him up after a 12 yard gain to force fourth down.

On 4th down and 8 yards, Niacinamide lines up to kick the 48 yard FG. With the wind swirling, the kick is tricky. But, Niacinamide is true on the kick and hooks it inside the goal post for a FG. The kick is GOOD!

B3 is the play, and it sinks the Ogabi battleship.  At least that’s the hope of the EltaMD coach.  But, Ogabi isn’t ready to give up just yet with plenty of other ships left on the board.

Cyclopentasiloxane Slipped into the Game

Hoping to muck up the game a little bit with the score getting out of hand, the Obagi coach sends in Cyclopentasiloxane (also known as D5) to see if he can slip past the defense for a score.

Cyclopentasiloxane is best know for conditioning (the defense), being a delivery agent (great QB), lubricant (one slippery SOB), and a solvent (figures out difficult situations).

D5 starts of the drive at the 20 yard line after the kickoff went for a touchback.

On 1st down, D5 drops back to pass to put those delivery agent skills to work. Unfortunately for D5, the EltaMD coach looked at the conditions of the game scientifically and made an educated guess that Obagi was going to pass. The all out blitz got to D5 before he could even look up. The sack lost 8 yards on the play.


“Fumble!” by Marco (CC BY 2.0), via

Trying to outguess the defense, the Obagi coach sent in a screen pass play. D5 dumped the pass off to the Obagi RB. But, before the play could get too much steam, the EltaMD defense was swarming and kept the play bottled up for only a 4 yard gainer.

On third and a mile (16 yards), D5 made things worse by trying to solve the defensive coverage for a little too long. Needing 16 yards, the WRs pass route just took too long and D5 was hit from behind and D5’s slipperiness worked against him as the ball squirted free. FUMBLE!!

The EltaMD defense pounced on the ball and recovered it at the Obagi 7 yard line.

Elta MD Hits Hard with Purified Water

With the ball on the Obagi 7 yard line, the Elta MD coach goes to Purified Water to try and deliver a knockout punch with Purified Water.

Varients of Purified Water is used in the lotion industry in almost every product there is.

She Throws

“She Throws” by swong95765 (CC BY 2.0), via

Purified Water is a solvent that is used to dissolve other ingredients that deliver skin benefits such as conditioning agents and cleansing agents.

So, Purified Water is a team player that brings out the best in teammates. Purified Water is also a special form of water where all of the impurities have been removed. So, you get just the very best from Purified Water, and none of the contaminants that have been known to accompany other lotion ingredients.

On 1st down, Purified Water lines up in the backfield and at the snap circles into the right flat. The Elta MD QB doctors the football up and delivers the pass perfectly leading Purified Water down field.

Purified Water is hit at the goal line, but dissolves the defense as he flows through them into the end zone for a TOUCHDOWN! The extra point (providing moisture that skin needs) is GOOD!

EltaMD is making the sponsors for the Best Face Lotion with Sunscreen Bowl mad by running away in this game.  Will Obagi be able to wake up in this game and give the fans something to watch?

Obagi Tries to Air it Out with Octinoxate

The Obagi coach is reeling from the bang, bang, bang score strikes by EltaMD. While watching the kickoff sail out of the end zone for a touchback, the Obagi coach is seeking the faces for any positive feedback from his long list of players.

As he searches, the Obagi coach stops on Octinoxate. Octinoxate is the most used player in the Obagi arsenal of sunscreen ingredients.


“grateful” by woodleywonderworks (CC BY 2.0), via

Octinoxate has some natural traits and is found in humans, including mother’s milk. Octinoxate is a UV sunlight absorber. He is known to block UV hard.

Oink, Oink!

But, Octinoxate also has some bad habits. He is known to cause biochemical changes (at the cellular level). And, can cause Endocrine disruption. This is a good thing when applying these traits to the defense. But, Octinoxate doesn’t have good control and applies these bad traits wherever he goes.

On first down, Octinoxate lines up at RB and tries to find a ray of light in the line. But, the UV defense is everywhere, and with Octinoxate not completely applied on the play, the UV defense stops him for 1 yard.

From the shotgun on 2nd down, the Obagi QB call the signals. Octinoxate goes in motion and on the snap moves to the right flat for a short pass. But, the defender is on him like a laser beam and knocks the ball to the ground.

On 3rd and long, Octinoxate lines up at right WR, and runs a comeback route. Trying to soak the DB in UV absorber, Octinoxate makes the cut back up the sidelines. The Obagi QB zips the ball like a ray of light to Octinoxate. But, Octinoxate is sloppy with UV application and has a foot out of bounds as he makes the catch.

On 4th down, Octinoxate kicks a low 42 yard punt that gives the EltaMD returner a running return. After faking past the first line of defenders, the EltaMD returner avoids a persistent bioaccumulation hit by Octinoxate by stepping out of bounds after a 16 yard return.

EltaMD Get Muddy with HA/SATC

The EltaMD coach is liking the way his team bursted out of the gates in this game, and with good field position, decides to take a chance with HA/SATC.

HA/SATC’s full name is Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer. Quite a mouthful, right?

Teammates can’t quite deal with that name, so they call him Hydro for short. Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer brings some positive talents to the game.

Glastonmudbury (muddying up the secondary)

“Glastonmudbury” by Paul Townsend (CC BY-ND 2.0), via

Hydro’s talents include increasing viscosity, being a stabilizing agent, thickening the fray, and muddying the waters (opacifying everything in his way).

To start the drive, Hydro starts conservative trying to get dirty between the tackles. The first run goes for 2 yards. But, the second run gives up that gain and takes awan another yard for a 3 yard loss.

Hydro Floods the Field with Talent

On 3rd down and long, Hydro lines up at WR and tries to confuse the secondary with a route that just takes too long to develop. So, the route did muddy the waters for the secondary. But, by the time Hydro got open, the EltaMD QB was being hit as the pass came out.

The ball fluttered through the air as if suspended in the air. As the EltaMD fans watched in horror, they couldn’t believe how long the ball was staying up. But, the secondary was still confused by the Hydro route and by the time they picked up the ball in the air, none of the secondary defenders could make a play to get the interception.

For this disappointing drive, Hydro stayed in to try and punt Obagi deep into their own territory. The punt was high and long, but the EltaMD coverage team couldn’t reach the ball as it landed into the end zone for a touchback.

Obagi Goes Hurry Up with Pentylene Glycol

With only 2 minutes and 26 seconds left until halftime, the Obagi coach is desperate to get points on the board without leaving too much time for EltaMD to counter.

The Obagi Medical Sun Shield coach looks down his bench and sees Pentylene glycol.

Pentylene glycol, or PentyG to his teammates, is fantastic at solving problems (he’s a natural solvent) and the Obagi coach knows that PentyG is the right person to get points leaving no time for an EltaMD response.

To start the series, PentyG receives a short dump pass and cuts up field for 7 yards. The Obagi coach takes his first timeout to stop the clock before the 2 minute warning.

After the timeout, PentyG gets a handoff and solves the problem of picking the right hole in the defense for a 4 yard plunge. The clock runs down to the 2 minute warning.

After the commercial break, PentyG runs a quick out and catches a pass to gain 3 yards as the clock keeps running.

With the defense giving a lot of room to keep the offense to short gains and to run the clock, PentyG was able to make nice gains on previous plays. The strategy is working as the clock has been run down to 1:24. Ogabi needed to step it up and PentyG recognized that.

Going Shotgun


“Shotgun” by judyboo (CC BY-ND 2.0), via

With the Ogabi QB in the shotgun, PentyG lined up at WR and ran a double move. After the first stop, the CB stepped forward to make the play and that’s when PentyG cut it up field. The CB panicked and turned to sprint back. That’s when PentyG stopped on a dime and the Obagi QB threw a dart that PentyG caught for 18 yards.

With the clock still running the offense hurried up field and lined up. PentyG ran the same play, except with the CB not biting on the first stop, PentyG did stop and the Obagi QB zipped the ball in for a 13 yard gain.

Mixing it up again, PentyG went back to the well one more time and ran the double move again. The EltaMD CB guessed wrong again and the play went for another 18 yards. Obagi called time out with 47 seconds left and having made it to the EltaMD 17 yards line.

Trying to mix it up again, PentyG went in motion and instead of running past the QB, moved into the RB position and took a handoff. EltaMD’s DT made a diving shoestring tackle to hole PentyG to only a 4 yard gain as the clock ran.

Time Running Out!

Obagi knowing that they didn’t want to leav too much time, lined up quickly, but not too quickly. The Obagi QB lines up in the shotgun and PentyG takes on that same CB that got them in such good field position. But, this time the CB played perfect technique and mirrored PentyG. The Obagi QB had to pull the ball down and scramble. But, the pocket collapses and the QB is sacked for a 3 yard loss.

Obagi used their last time out with 20 seconds until halftime.

Without any time outs, PentyG knew they couldn’t risk a catch that didn’t get to the end zone. So, PentyG faked outside and cut inside and this up field to try and solve the coverage and hit a seam. But, the Obagi QB couldn’t wait for the play to develop and threw the ball too early and the ball sailed out of the end zone.

With the first half having been so horrible for Obagi, the coach knows the team needs points on the board. So, the team lined up to kick a 34 yard FG. With 9 seconds on the clock the ball sailed through the uprights and was GOOD!

EltaMD Takes a Knee into Halftime

After the kickoff sails into the end zone for a touchback, EltaMD takes and goes into half time with a 27 – 10 lead.

Halftime Report

EltaMD came into this game a slight favorite.  They took the reigns quickly and established a dominant lead they hope to protect.


“Ouch!” by Joe Stump (CC BY 2.0), via

Obagi was hoping to sneak up from the shadows and shine in this game.  But, the hot rays of EltaMD have proven thus far to be too much for Obagi.

Will EltaMD try to run away and hide in the shade for the 2nd half?  Or, will Obagi try to make some coverage adjustments to see if they can get back into this game?

EltaMD Kicks off for the 2nd Half

EltaMD opens the 2nd half kicking off to Obagi.  EltaMD had a very dominant first half.  But, they need to not let down and give this Obagi team any momentum.  Obagi has saved some of its best players for the 2nd half, so they are expecting to give EltaMD a burner of a 2nd half.

Ogabi Opens 2nd Half with Polysorbate 60

“Air National Guard Emergency Managers Continue Training at Global Dragon” by New York National Guard (CC BY-ND 2.0), via

The Ogabi Medical Sun Shield coach looked over the film at halftime and he and his assistents felt like they just needed to break down EltaMD better.

So, coach went with Polysorbate 60 to open the 2nd half. Poly60 as he’s known to teammates is a very nice smelling player that is a surfactant, emulsifier, and solubilizing agent.

Poly60 can break down the surface tension between players, and coach is hoping to get some of that tension working for his team.

But, Poly60 also has a dark side where he tends to bring in contaminant friends into the team offsite gatherings. This behavior gets Poly60 in trouble. And, the media frenzy to identify those contaminants causes trouble for the team.

On this opening drive, Poly60 isn’t mixing well with his WRs as they were still feeling snubbed from a party the night before where Poly60’s friend were rude to the WRs. With the team chemistry a little off, Poly60 misfired on two pass plays and the drive was over before it started with a 3 and out series.

Poly60 was mad at himself for having mistreated his teammates, and with anger boomed the punt 57 yards with a hang time of over 5 seconds. The punt sailed into the end zone for a touchback.

EltaMD Looks for Knockout Blow

With a huge lead and a nice defensive stop to open the second half, the EltaMD UV Clear coach is looking to deliver a knockout blow to Obagi.

sitting with conditioner

“sitting with conditioner” by anneheathen (CC BY 2.0), via

Coach tags Tocopheryl Acetate to be the delivery mechanism for this blow. Known as T-Ace to some of his friends on the team, he brings one strong talent. His talent is as a strong skin conditioner.

T-Ace is very good a skin conditioning. However, there have been rumors that T-Ace can be a contamination concern to his teammates.

T-Ace opens the drive with run plays to pound the defense in an attempt to condition them. The first play is stuffed. But, T-Ace finds some daylight and grinds out 9 conditioning yards on 2nd down.

Ready to do some more damage, T-Ace takes the rock on third and short. But, EltaMD diagnoses the play expertly and shoots the gap to hit T-Ace in the back field. T-Ace struggles to move forward. He is moving the pile. But, the calvery arrives in time to keep T-Ace from getting the first down.

EltaMD exposes T-Ace for his contamination traits and forces T-Ace to punt the ball on fourth down. The punt is a boomer and hangs in the air for almost 5 seconds while travelling 53 yards. Coverage is good as the returner is forces out of bounds for no gain.

Obagi Drops a Dime

The Obagi Medical Sun Shield coach is liking the way his defense started the 2nd half and is looking to try and get back into a game that has gotten away from him.

Coach decides to send PEG-10 Dimethicone into the game. Dime-Dime, as he’s known to his teammates, is used by his coach a lot (high percentage of team use).

1981 dime

“1981 dime” by Daniel Oines (CC BY 2.0), via

Dime-Dime is a single minded competitor. The primary strength that Dime-Dime brings to the game is an ability to condition skin.

Dime-Dime’s PEG-10 name means he has an average of 10 moles of ethylene oxide. He is related to the Silocones. His major flaw is hanging around with undesirables that leaves him contaminated with cancer causers.

Coach sends out Dime-Dime with explicit instructions to take care of the ball and to try and help the team win the field position battle.

On the first two plays Dime-Dime struggles to get back to the line of scrimmage and is only able to eek out 2 yards.

On 3rd down, Dime-Dime lines up in the shotgun and looks to try and find a skin conditioning play as he reads the secondary. On the snap, Dime-Dime reads the play and starts to see a nice play developing to the outside. But, upon closer inspection, Dime-Dime spots a rash.

Seeing the rash, Dime-Dime realizes that the defensive safeties were cheating up and knows the right play is deep to the middle of the field. Ignoring his coaches plea to maintain a field position advantage, Dime-Dime lofts the ball deep down the middle of the field.

The EltaMD safeties see the change and quickly try to recover. The Obagi TE is wide open streaking down the field, but Dime-Dime misjudges the speed of the TE. The ball sails harmlessly out of the TE’s reach for an incompletion.

On 4th down, Dime-Dime takes the deep snap and angrily boots the ball low and deep. The EltaMD returner takes the ball 46 yards down field and with the low kick is able to receive the ball cleanly.

With a juke here and the fake there, the EltaMD returner weaves through defenders until he runs out of sideline room after a 14 yard return.
