We're going to need a new drinking game for this one.

Holly Jameson said...

@ Kevin...no chance. In fact I think it would be best if they didn't even dress him as he might jinx our mojo. Who else thinks Fleury is clutch? I think he should be back up at least for the final "pressure is on game". LuonGold (did you guys see that sign too?) has been fantastic, even more than I ever gave him credit for, but whether it's because we've all seen him pull through in desperate situations or maybe it's just because I'm a Pens fan and my loyalty is in him but I think Fleury would be a good choice. I know it won't happen, but a girl can dream.

@ Need Ice....Hellz yeah. Maybe we can work on it.

Alright lets get some ideas flowing for this drinking game:

- Everytime the announcers say the word Penguin - shot. This ofcourse will include any mention of the word even when referencing former-Pens players.
- Anytime Sid gets checked by a Pen or former Pen - 1 shot if he stays on his feet, 2 shots if he hits the ice (we'll need this).

Ok somebody else help out here.

Can I mention that it sucks that this is on at the exact same time as the Las Vegas race?!?! Oh, well, I've gotten good at channel-flipping, and how many gold-medal games do you see?

For the drinking game, take or leave these:

* Niedermayer or Brodeur is described as a "veteran".
* On the other end of the spectrum, Drew Doughty's described as "young".
* "Pittsburgh native Ryan Malone"
* Completely irrelevant mention of Ovechkin, especially coupled with Crosby.
* Two shots/sips for any mention of Evgeni Malkin.
* Person painted red and white, or with a maple leaf, in the crowd.
* Person in huge Uncle Sam hat in the crowd.
* Mention of the Canadian womens' team's celebration.
* A Canadian and an American who are currently beating the shit out of each other are described as "teammates".
* Jeremy Roenick and Mike Milbury sound genuinely angry at each other.

I'd have used "Close-up of Crosby on the bench for no good reason," but you'd be passed out by second period even if you sipped rather than shot.

BTW, this is tacky self-promotion, but the Bomb Pop cocktail I describe here can be scaled down pretty nicely into a shot. (Just make sure you use equal amounts of the lemonade and liquors.) And I *love* the Boston Pops Martini I linked to, although I usually only have it for Memorial Day or Fourth of July.

@Cracker & Need Ice: You bitches are clearly professionals when it comes to the drinking game thing. The only additions I would make would be:

* Somebody calls Scott Niedermayer RON Niedermayer (Mike Milbury, I'm talkin' to you fartface!);

* Close-up of Patrick Kane chomping on his mouthguard like a motherfucking chew toy;

* Close-up of JR's diarrhea-colored jacket and matching baby blue tie;

* Frighteningly extreme close-up of JR's protruding yellow choppers; (double shot if you think you see any food stuck in there somewhere and if Milbury looks like he's just been spit on);

* Mention of "Miracle On Ice", "Miracle", "1980 Olympics", "USA Hockey" or "Do you believe in miracles?" or a combination thereof;

* Any and all random reminders of what an amazing goalie Ryan Miller is, and how everybody in his family with a nutsack is somehow involved in hockey.

I am so watching this game on "mute" mode, with the new High on Fire cranked up to 11. Word.

Another reason this is going to be hard for me is my cheesehead side of the family. Cheeseheads know and love their hockey, dammit. Here's another reason to have fond affection for cheeseheads. They're turning into master bootleggers, as well! Hands down, the best gin I've tasted in YEARS...

Fuck Canada

CrackerLilo said...

Breaking news: Marian Hossa just applied for Finnish citizenship. ;-) Yes, I know it's an easy joke, but I just had to.

Wouldn't it be weird if the mens' medal results lined up the same way the womens' did?

@ MouthGuard: How the hell did I miss Kane chewing his mouthguard? Thanks! That drives me soooo nuts. I don't care for Johan Franzen, but I still thought it was hilarious last year when he took Kane's mouthguard out of his mouth and threw it down.

Need Ice In Phoenix said...

@Cracker & Mouth - I'm willing to bet there's a squeeker in that boy's mouthguard. The dude just WORKS IT!!! LOL!

All good drinking game suggestions. And yes, we would all end up in emergency if we took a shot everytime they showed "Sid on the bench". I'm hoping it's because NBC let his Grandma's run the cameras, otherwise it's just weird.

GO CANADAAAAAAAAA!!

CrackerLilo said...

@ Need Ice: I think it's just that he's soooo ridiculously easy to read and reacts to everything quickly. You can get a pretty good idea of whether his team can recover or sustain a lead by looking at Crosby. That's one huge reason why I like him. (I love the same thing in Tony Stewart and hate Jimmie Johnson's permanent poker face, too.) That said, it gets excessive on NBC and has really been excessive during these Olympics. I'd hate to think what non-Crosby/Penguins fans are thinking of it, but I have an idea.

Need Ice In Phoenix said...

OMG!

Did it really just end with a goal by SID?!!!!

WHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Holly Jameson said...

@ Need Ice: Whoooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! I'm with you there sister! Love you!! Love everybody! Give the polar bears seals anyway!!!

Go Sidney! I'm so proud of you!!
