Most of you are already familiar with the Official Liberty Ballers Drinking Game, which can be seen and read in it's entirety here. And while I had planned on putting up a few additional rules before the playoffs started, I reconsidered because it could be seen as a gateway to depression if I'm forcing you to drink after each loss. But now that the Sixers have won a game, that's all out the window!
In honor of the fifth (and possibly last) game of this series, here are five brand spanking new addendums to the drinking game we've been enjoying since November:
1. Whenever LeBron James flexes on camera, down a 40.
Teenage girls feel the need to smile like there's no tomorrow every time their friend shoves a point-and-shoot camera in their direction. LeBron makes a muscle, which is the male equivalent. He's the guy who would show his guns whenever the jib swings around after the commercial at a WWE event. Cool, LeBron. In your honor, we'll shove 40 ounces of bad beer down our throats. Hats off.
2. If Miami gets a foul called on them, take a shot.
There's no telling whether or not this one will get put into play, but by the small chance that it happens, it's worth a Dongaila shot or two. With the foul discrepancy favoring the Heat by 22 in four games, I wouldn't hold my breath. Although if you do, that would probably make the shot more effective. Worth considering.
3. Do a kegstand each time Erik Spoelstra looks like a chipmunk
This is all the time. Have someone spot you for blood flow problems.
4. For each point the Heat outscore the Sixers in the 2nd quarter, drink.
A little-known fact in the NBA rulebook is that you're not allowed to try in the second quarter. It's in the back close to the glossary and the index, but it's there. While Doug Collins and the Sixers have been following that rule to a T, Erik Spoelstra and his team of rule-breakers seem to be above such laws. I've protested with the league, but David Stern and company haven't responded to my texts. Adam Silver texted me back, but that was about something different. We're cool. Anyway, drink for their lawless ways.
5. If the Sixers win the series, rob your nearest convenient store and put as much alcohol in your system as you can before you pass out.
This one needs no explanation.
