until Texas vs Kansas

Here's to Brent!

Joining ESPN Gameday and Cold Pizza in Austin this weekend will be good old Brent Musburger, who will be calling the game for ABC. While we hope Brent doesn't have too much fun in Austin, as he is apt to do, his presence will allow those of us watching at home to have quite a bit of fun.

For those who have never heard about it, here is the classic Brent Musburger Drinking Game.

(For even more fun, here's an audio clip of Tony Kornheiser reading the rules on his radio show.)

Brent Musburger Drinking Game


Play at your own risk. It is conceivable your whole party will be passed out with 8 minutes remaining in the 1st quarter.

*Note: Partner is spelled "Pardner," because that's the way Brent says it.

Rule #1: "The Pardner." A person is picked to be the Pardner at the beginning of the game. The first time Brent says "Pardner," the Pardner has to take 1 drink, and then picks someone else to be the Pardner. The next time Brent says it, the new Pardner has to take 2 drinks, and then pick a new Pardner, and so on and so on. The Pardner must wear a special "Pardner" hat.

Rule #2: "Folks." 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.

Rule #3: "It's a foot race!" Whenever Brent says "It's a foot race" everyone has to finish their drink. The first one done becomes "That Man" and gets to punch the Pardner in the arm.

Rule #4: "There's that man again." After someone becomes "That Man," they get to give away 3 drinks to someone of their choosing the next time Brent says "That Man." That person then becomes "That Man." If Brent says "That Man" before "It's a footrace," The Pardner becomes That Man. If The Pardner becomes That Man first, he gets to punch the new That Man in the arm twice after giving away the 3 drinks. There must also be a special hat for "That Man."

Rule #5: "Dr. Pepper." Every time Brent says "Dr. Pepper" everyone has to yell out "I'M A PEPPER!" and take 2 drinks. Afterwards, each person must give out a satisfied "AAAAAAAHHHHH!", as if in a Dr. Pepper commercial. Anyone who fails to do so must drink again.

Rule #6: "Jack Arute." Whenever Brent says "Our ol' buddy Jack Arute" everyone has to say "AROOOOOOT!" Last one to do it has to do a shot. If everyone does it simultaneously, the Pardner must do a shot.

Rule #7: "In the college game." Whenever Brent says this little gem, everyone must say "Shut the **** up Brent", drink 2, and punch the Pardner in the arm.

Rule #8: Mentioning a Big 10 school during a Big 12 game. Whenever Brent does this, the first person who names the Big 10 school's mascot gets to make somebody drink for 11 seconds, since there's 11 schools in the Big 10.

Rule #9: Calling a touchdown before the player actually scores. For example, during an interception return, Brent says "It's a touchdown!" before the player actually scores. In this case, everyone must start drinking and continue to drink until the player actually does score. If by some odd event, the player does NOT score, everyone must finish their drink.

Rule #10: "Gary, my man." Whenever Brent says "Gary, my man", the Pardner gets to choose someone to be Gary. From that point on, that person must be referred to as "Gary, my man" until the game is over. "Gary, my man" gets to give away 5 drinks the rest of the game any time Brent says "Gary, my man". If someone talks to "Gary, my man" without calling him that, they have to do a shot. If there is someone playing the game actually named Gary, that person is automatically "Gary, my man."

Rule #11: "The Major." If Brent has a pet nickname for one of the players during the game, for example calling Major Applewhite "The Major", everyone must drink 5 anytime Brent uses this nickname. However, "Gary, my man" does not drink but gets to give away 5 drinks since this person already has a nickname of their own.

Rule #12: "John Saunders." The first time Brent quips with John Saunders, everyone must drink 1. The next time, everyone must drink 2, and so on and so on.

Rule #13: In the booth. Whenever there's a camera shot of Brent in the booth, the Pardner must make a toast to Brent. After the toast, everyone must drink 1.

Rule #14: "My Friend." Every Pardner gets to choose a "Friend." The friend must always get up to get the Pardner another drink (since the Pardner will be doing quite a bit of that). However, when Brent utters "My Friend" the friend gets to punch the Pardner in the arm for making him get up so much.

I'm going to try to convince my friends to partake in this game this weekend...I hope I am still conscious at halftime.
cool game. I go to SC, but you guys in austin sure know how to party. unfortunately, they won't be showing the game here in Los Angeles, so I'll have to try that game some other time. Really funny, you get props for coming up with that shit.
Hey TR, since I live in LA, you think you can come up with one for Keith Jackson and Dan Fouts...come on man, I know you can.
We might run out of beer if we drank every time Brent said "Touchdown Texas Tech!!"
Well then buy more than one beer.
Sorry, I realize that technically that didn't make much sense. How about: TTech is about as likely to beat TEXAS as Lubbock becoming a tourist destination.

Along those lines - I am going camping this Friday because Austin always get flooded with Red Raiders who run their mouths pre-game. Can't blame them for wanting to leave Lubbock, but I can sure hate their cocky swagger. Alas Red Raiders, don't get your panties in a tangle, because I will be returning Saturday to kick you when your down with your tales between your Wranglers.
I thought the buy more than one beer made sence and was funny. Go with the guy holt.
