The Versus [drinking] Game of the Week (Rangers at St. Louis)

Beneath Chuck Norris' beard is another fist

Apologies for getting this up so late. The real world beckoned and here I am, only, you know... like 4 days early instead of 5 for the game. Anyways, the Rangers at the Blues has to be one of the most curious options for Versus to air. Sure, the Rangers play in New York and have a huge fan base. Add to that the fact that they have been competitive recently, and they are a natural fit for TV. The Blues, of course, have ALL STAR Keith Tkachuk. The teams have almost nothing in common except being the former home of Gretzky past his prime and wearing blue. The fact that this is a nationally televised game boggles the mind. Let's drink.


... if Chuck Norris is ever cited as an example of a "Ranger"

... if B.B. King is mentioned in reference to the Blues.

... Anytime they say that this is a matchup between the "Blueshirts and Blues". Ugh, they're going to say that a lot, aren't they?

... when they mention the name "Girardi". Twice if it's Rangers' defenseman Dan. Three times if it's Yankees manager Joe. Five times if you didn't know one of the two existed.

... Every time the Blues turn the puck over in the defensive zone. This is a good one, especially if you didn't have a date for Valentine's Day. Booze makes it better.

And of course, more in the comments


  1. I will be at that game! DRINK UP!

  2. The Blues might surprise you. The will play hard all game. They pressure and forecheck well.
