Blog Show Has Officially Arrived!

People in TV always say that a show has made it when it gets into syndication. Well, I beg to differ. I say you haven't made it until there is a drinking game created about you or your show.

There's the Brent Musberger Drinking Game in which "Everyone drinks 1 when Brent says "Folks." However, if Brent says "Hold on Folks", everyone must drink once but the first person to drink has to finish their drink for not holding on."

How about the ESPN College Gameday Drinking Game. Rule #16: If Holly Rowe starts to look good to you, stop drinking.

My personal favorite has to be The Price is Right Drinking Game. Rule #4:drink everytime someone bids a dollar. Rule #16: If you make it to the end of the show and Bob tells you to spay or neuter your pets, drink a beer.

Well, now there is a drinking game that trumps all others. It's the BLOG SHOW DRINKING GAME! The tremendously gracious contributors over at Rumors and Rants were kind enough to sit down and come up with this one, and for that, the Blog Show Crew is forever indebted to them.

The great thing about this game is that it took a true Blog Show fan to come up with some of these rules. Someone who watches Blog Show with a critical, yet careful, eye. Take a look at some of these rules.

Take a sip if:
A blogger gets his (or her) wings via a "ding."
Dan swings and misses badly on a one-liner, bringing the show to a screeching halt.
They talk at the same time.
Jamie uncomfortably, yet smoothly segues into another topic. (Ex. "Speaking of keeping your groin in check...")

Take two sips if:
You've never heard of the blog they reference.
They refer to how low-budget the show is.
Hairstyles (facial or head) are examined.

Chug if:
Dan nails a one-liner (or as we call it, a "That gets a ding" moment).
Jamie doesn't get one of Dan's jokes.
Dan, and not Jamie, makes the transition between segments.

Just a few examples of the brilliance that is the staff at Rumors and Rants. Again, we can't thank them enough, and I can assure them that R and R will be getting some loud dings on this week's edition of Blog Show!
