All week we've been doing "Duck Dynasty" stories to coincide with the show's season three premiere on Wednesday. And just like us, you seem to love the bearded brothers (and father and uncle and wives). So today we bring you a special treat: exclusive pictures from inside the Robertsons' premiere party as they -- like many of you -- watched the season's first episodes on A&E.
And if you needed any other excuse to like the boys from the bayou, get a load of this: despite their success and fame, the family didn't reserve a swanky, exclusive wine bar at a fancy restaurant -- instead they crashed the party room at the local West Monroe, LA, Buffalo Wild Wings (which happens to be this author's favorite restaurant). Take a look at the scene that unfolded Wednesday night as the family tuned into the show:
One local news crew was allowed video access. You can watch their report here (which includes Uncle Si giving credit to "the Almighty).
Our pictures come from Ryan Howard who, despite his last name and clean-shaven face, is actually part of the family. Howard is the brother of Willie's wife, Korie. See the resemblance?
"We laughed so hard you could hardly hear the next line!" Ryan told TheBlaze about the viewing party.
"They crack up the entire time," he added regarding how the family usually reacts when watching the show. "Korie is usually in stitches and can't catch her breath. They are all such great sports and just laugh at themselves, very humble and no pride."
