The Versus [drinking] Game of the Week: Boston at Washington

Can you believe it? Hockey season already! It’s the best time of the year, if only it was about 50 degrees warmer!  I know one thing, I have definitely been sober way too much since last spring, so let’s get back in the swing of things with our first Versus Drinking Game of the year! Well, not until after we check out this video of George Parros flicking Barret Jackman though:

All right then. That’s some high quality goonery right there. I have once been flicked by a man with a bushy mustache, but I can’t really get into that right now, not until the trial is over anyways. Enough about me, let’s talk about alcohol fueled hockey!


… every time the announcers come up with a new name for Alexander Ovechkin. Alex, Ovie, Captain Bramblepants (I’m waiting for that one to catch on)…. anything.

… if you catch Nathan Horton with a grin on his face. After so long with the Panthers, he’s just happy to be skating in the NHL.

… for every Redskins jersey. Some people just don’t understand that it’s not proper protocol to wear blatantly offensive clothing out in public.

… if you have the Tukka Rask action figure in your Star Wars figurine collection. You know Anze Kopitar does.

And now, the drinking player of the week. Last year, I introduced players with some fun facts about those players that were neither fun nor factual. This year, I am going to spice things up, getting all my “facts” from the players girlfriend forum. Remember, this is all from the girlfriend forum, so you know it’s true.

This week, Zdeno Chara!

According to the wonderful, insightful ladies at the talk-sports forum….

- According to the well thought out taunts of a Sabres fan, Zdeno Chara “sucks big time”.  Also, this being my only experience with the Sabre female fanbase, Sabres female, Buffalo females are dangerously unbalanced, type in all caps and can’t spell “Boston”.

- Rebecca P would like to date Zdeno, but he is married.

- According to one of the anonymous commenters, he is an ugly Slovak.

Any other ideas? Leave them in the comments, friends.
