Thar She Blows!
by Michael Menser Dell, Editor-in-Chief
Back in the day, LCS was famous for its drinking games. The most popular one featured Bill Clement and required everyone to take a drink whenever the toothy broadcaster would utter the word "torque."
Yeah, it may not seem like a common word, but Clement wasn't scared to bust it out every other sentence. By the end of the night, everyone got pretty well torqued.
LCS has been back online now for two years, so I reckon it's time to unveil a new drinking game. And this one involves the site itself.
Requirements: A computer and your beverage of choice. While I recommend gin, it doesn't have to be alcohol. It could be a wholesome beverage like chocolate milk, root beer, or Jager.
How to Play: I hope everyone enjoys the swell logos at the top of the page. There are 60 different logos, with a new one appearing each time you refresh the page. Gather your friends around the ol' computer and visit this here very site.
The game begins with the first player clicking the refresh button. If the logo at the top of the page features a Hartford Whaler, the person has to drink. The other players must celebrate the occasion by singing the "Brass Bonanza." Good times.
If the logo at the top of the page features Cousin Larry Appleton and Balki Bartokomous of "Perfect Strangers" fame, it's a social. Everyone drinks.
If the logo at the top of the page features Gary Coleman, only the other players drink.
And that's pretty much it. Each player has to refresh the page three times before passing their turn. New logos are always being added, so there's no telling where or when the Mighty Whale will appear. It's kind of like "Press Your Luck" with booze.
Those are the rules of "Thar She Blows!" But feel free to make your own variations. Like, you could drink whenever a goaltender appears or a player from the former Patrick Division or whatever else you want. The only limit is your imagination! Well, and your liver.
