We need a TV blizzard drinking game
Until the roof caves in from the weight of all the snow and the power goes out, of course we're going to be watching the non-stop blizzard coverage on local channels tomorrow. To keep from getting bored, let's come up with rules for the drinking game. Here's a start at some rules; what are yours?
Whenever somebody mentions the Blizzard of '78, take a drink. When Harv mentions it, take two - he's the only one who got it right, remember?
A reporter makes a snowball. Take a drink. Follow with a quick shot if he/she throws it at the cameraperson.
A reporter sticks a ruler in the snow. Take a drink.
A reporter sticks a yardstick in the snow. Take two drinks.
A reporter reports from a hill in Worcester. Take a drink.
A reporter reports from one of the 128 service areas. Drink.
Ed Harding puts on his glasses. Cheers!
A reporter does a live outdoor standup while not dressed in his or her station's parka. L'chaim.
A reporter does something he's just warned you not to do - like walk along Nantasket Beach at high tide. Take three drinks.
Deval Patrick issues a statement from the Bunker while dressed in a MEMA vest. Drink. Somebody compares his vest to Mike Dukakis's sweater. Two drinks.
Pete Bouchard says something that could be construed as a reference to his private parts. Drink!
Somebody mentions The Benchmark. Drink!
Somebody uses the word "bombogenesis." Skoal!
