Pens Vs Bruins Grades
Todayâ€™s regularly scheduled grades will not be published. You see, yesterday, we decided that since the game started in the morning here and it was St. Patrickâ€™s Day, we would play one of Puck daddyâ€™s famous (or infamous) drinking games. We called this one the NBC Announce Crew Drinking game.
In this game, you must take a drink every time an announcer says something that is part of the predetermined list. I had bloody Maryâ€™s, my wife had (healthy?) VFusion and vodka. Hereâ€™s the list of â€œdrinkableâ€ things:
Any mention of the Pirates
Anytime he descended into esoterica such as a playerâ€™s junior team or a historical footnote or a list of birthdays.
Any mention of â€œPascualâ€ Dupuis
Anytime he said â€œgo to the net and good things will happen.â€
Any mention of Brooks “Orpeck.”
(And the real killer) Anytime he made a statement and asked his partners to validate it, as in, â€œright, Edzo?â€
And thanks to the above, my memories of everything after the first period are rather hazy.
