The Versus [drinking] Game of the Week (Philadelphia at Atlanta)

I could have found a much worse picture of a fuzzy navel

Assuming I haven't destroyed your liver in the first two weeks of the season, I think we're just about ready for another game to drink for. After the week I've had, I'm all for drinking, even if it is in the middle of the week. This is probably going to be the only time we'll have the Thrashers available for national consumption, so let's take full advantage. And since it is in Atlanta, I suggest peach schnapps. You're watching hockey, so the girly drink is canceled out. It's physics. Besides, the orange juice in the fuzzy navel will do you good.


... when there is a terrible "thrash" pun. Ilya Kovalchuk is thrashing the Flyers! Atlanta is getting thrashed! What the hell is a Thrasher?! Stuff like that.

...if you would like to 'thrash' Flyers puck dropper Sarah Palin ...If you plan on voting!

... if this is the first time you've ever seen the Thrashers. Turn off the game and go back to baseball if this is your first time watching the Flyers.

... going into commercial breaks, if Atlanta rapper Ludacris has a ho in your area code.

... once if the Phillies are mentioned, twice if they speculate on whether Chase Utley would look good in skates, three times if there is a graphic showing Utley in skates, finish all that schnapps if they do the same with Ryan Howard.

... when Kari Lehtonen makes a kick save, twice if you thought Kari was a girls name.

... right now if you channeled Buccigross when I wrote "kick save"

As always, I expect more ideas in the comments.


  1. What song will be used this time to drown out the Palin boos? I am thinking either Jack and Diane or Born in the USA.

  2. Do a shot if they talk about the Thrashers' poor season ticket renewal rate.

    Drink if they bring up the Flyers' injury problems at defense.

    Do a shot if an interview is interrupted by a goal.

    And, as always, if Joe Beninnati is calling the game, drink every time he says "On Versus".

  3. I'd like to apologize in advance if my last rule sends people to the hospital.
