On paper the NFL draft sounds exciting--football, jerseys, Rodger Goodell getting booed! In actuality, it kinda drags on. Like most boring things, however, the NFL draft is much more entertaining with booze. It's time to trash those mock drafts, settle into your war room and prepare your team ("team" meaning "liver") for our drinking game, "You Make The Call."
First prepare the Draft Board. Find a table with ample space for a beer pong cup, a quarters game, flip cup and a center community cup. (TRUST US, WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING!) Next, split up the teams evenly between the people playing. You can do this by division, favorite teams or--if it's just two of you and you're real men--conferences.
Lastly, choose your own adventure...
1. "You're On The Clock"
When one of your teams is on the clock, so are you. You have to either make a beer pong shot, bounce a quarter in a glass or achieve a flip cup before your team makes their pick. If you miss a beer pong shot, your friend can move it to a different spot on the table. Miss a quarter shot, the glass gets moved an inch away. Miss a flip cup, fill it up and try again. Achieve your goal before your team picks...or chug the community cup!
If the announcers mention any of the following items, everyone takes a drink while adding a drink to the center cup:
- Mel Kiper's "Big Board"
- Player described as a "real reach"
- Player described as having a "huge upside"
- Player described as having a "high motor"
- Any mention of players' college degree and how it will somehow help them in professional football
- Chris Berman describing Applebee's in a commercial or on-air
3. "Calling Your Shot"
In between rounds or during commercial breaks, a player can "call his shot." He must hit a beer pong cup, quarter shot, or flip cup on the first try. Win and he can assign the drink; lose and he's subject to the community cup.
