As I mentioned in a previous post, last football season, I came up with a little drinking game:
This was also accompanied by the Tim Tebow drinking game – while watch college football at any point in the last season, drink any time the announcers mention Tim Tebow. Two if he’s not on the field at the time. Three if neither of the teams playing in the game you’re watching is Florida. You get trashed, fast.
I didn’t make much of it, because I thought of the game near the end of the season, and I figured it wouldn’t work after Tebow disappeared into being a backup on some NFL team for a few years.
I was wrong.
Last weekend, I had a preseason NFL game on in the background, and it happened to be the Steelers vs the Broncos. Did I mention Tebow apparently ended up with the Broncos? So, I figured I’d try out the old Tim Tebow Drinking Game again. It still works. Really well. I finished a beer in less than one offensive drive. In maybe 5 minutes of football, the announces said Tebow’s name 14 times. Which doesn’t count the number of times that they referred to him simply as “He” (and yes, I’m pretty sure they capitalized it while they spoke), because it was obvious who they were talking about, because he was all they were talking about. For the entire drive. Which he didn’t even score on. For reference, if I had held to the “3 if Florida isn’t on the field” clause, that would have been 42 drinks in five minutes, or roughly three and a half cans of beers.
If you care to give it a try, the Vikings and the Broncos will be kicking off their last preseason game shortly (Thursday at 7:30 pm central).
Part of me wants Tebow to be the starter in the regular season so the drinking game can stay alive. However, another part of me doesn’t want him to start because that part would like to be with me past 40, and it’s name is my liver.
