If you've read the past couple weeks, you'll realize that I'm not so good with "previews". What you may not know is that I AM good at drinking. True story, I snapped awake about half an hour ago with a case of the "I drank way too much Captain Morgan last nights". I'm not sick, per se, but if you have ever set sail with the Captain, you'll understand that I'm losing 6 pounds today, one way or another. So, since drinking is on my mind, and the fact that its hockey's real opening day and I'm not going to sleep again anytime soon, I figure we should kick off our first drinking game of the season.
If you don't know how this works, you've never been to college or lived in Manitoba. I'm just going to give you a run down of some suggested situations for when to drink. Other ideas are encouraged in the comments. Here we go!
... every time Mats Sundin is mentioned. Twice if they suggest he might end up in Detroit. Thrice if they mention that Nik Antropov has to pick up the offensive slack. Chug if you're a Leafs fan.
... every time they show a team captain. I still have Captain on the brain.
... every time the word "opening" is used, like "opening night", "opening period", "opening goal", or "Van Ryn checks Hossa into the boards, opening a large gash across his forehead."
... if Jiri Tlusty's past indescretions are brought up. Take off your pants and drink three more times if they actually mention his wee wee.
... when the Red Wings score. No. Kidding. I don't want to kill you.
