The rules of the hockey drinking game pretty much ensure that the players will be drinking non-stop. Which is, I suppose, the point. One of those creators has to be Canadian (they of the non-stop beer commercials) and no wonder- there's an ice rink in every bar in Canada. I'm so bummed about hockey- the other night I watched some minor, minor, minor (okay, high school) team play on tv. I guess the sports programmers are missing NHL hockey, too.
It took me to Joe Theismann to catch the Suzy chug. Tsk, tsk, how politically incorrect...
Your gonna need more than a six pack for this my friend, expecially for the whole Theismann mentioning his career thing.
I wouldn't consider Suzy marginal, I think she is pretty hot.
Yeah, I was thinking of changing the beer minimum. I'm gonna chart it one of these weeks. Can't do it Sunday because the Yanks are on at the same time.
Plus, I wanna add some more criteria if people leave good comments.
Based on these rules, the first quarter of the game better be pretty good because I dont think you will see much of the game past that. You will be passed out on your couch with all the drinking you are going to do.
I think your next article for espn.com should be on this broadcasting crew. It may be your last but I am sure you would have 100% approval from your readers here and on espn.com.
How about when:
The Patriots are mentioned as a dynasty (2 if they aren't playing)
An offense is refered to as "high-flying"
How about drink every time Manny Ramirez gets an MVP vote. Oh, forget it, you'd be drunk too quick.
I think Vlad G. wins AL MVP. Manny second, Sheffield third. Then a mix of Schilling, Rivera, Ortiz and Ichiro.
How bout a drink when Theisman talks for 45 without anyone else getting a word in...
One for every time Theisman and Maguire argue over whether measurement will bring a first down or not...
Um.. that should have been 45 seconds up above...
I'm confused. Is the object of the game to be a non-stop drink-a-thon with no time to piss or talk and the potential to fall asleep in the first quarter, or a way to make these guys more tolerable and the usually meaningless game more enjoyable? Is this just to make fun of them? If it's a real game get rid of at least half of them. Has Maquire ever called Theismann an idiot? ALso, what is the difference between the two shots and the chug on Suzy Kolber? Sorry for being so literal, but this is serious stuff devising a drinking game.
With regards to the Yanks v Sox Drinking game...
Chug a beer if Enrique Wilson talks Manny into missing a game so they can go catch a drink at the teams hotel bar.
That SNF game is spot on, except for your six beer guess-timate. I think a quater barrell or at least a party ball would be necessary. And cups would be a waste of time...tap-in-mouth.
I know it may just be me, but I find Suzy Kolber to be very sexy.
Drink twice everytime the announcers describe a simple end-around play as a reverse.
That grates on me for some reason. Maybe 2 drinks would make is tolerable.
That's a end-around/reverse thing gets to me, too. A lot of annoucers are guilty of that one.
Larry, read the Suzy Kolber stuff again. Carefully. The chug entires will not happen, but a lot of that tusff should equal out to about six beers. I'll track it one Sunday night.
Yep... last week I even saw a "double-reverse!!"
Of course that mean would mean a hand off to a running back, who hands off to a wide receiver going the other way (reverse) who hands off to another wide receiver going the other way (double reverse). That never happens in the NFL because defenses are too fast.
And it's an end around when the QB just hands off to the wide receiver... not a reverse.
Calling an end-around a reverse really bothers me too. Just thought you'd all like to know.
1 - Every time Theismann says that a runner called "down by contact" should be a play that can be challenged.
Chug - if Carl Banks breaks Joe Theismann's leg again.
BTW this game could easily have been a 12 pack when Summerall was on there, especially if you had:
1 - everytime Summerall doesn't know what's going on.
I would like to know why you guys are so one-sided on your comments? Please just call the plays and forget the comments!!!!!!
bengal fan, sue
After watching these three make asses of themselves yet again during last night's Browns-Steelers game, I'd add "drink 3 when Theismann makes a medical diagnosis," as he did when saying that Roethlisberger's standing on the sidelines was a bad idea for a guy who's had knee surgery.
It would be funny if Theismann actually did have a secret medical degree. I'ma tell you what, with a guy like that who went to Notre Dame, Ben's with one of the all-time greats.
