NFL Thursday Night Football Drinking Game
We're not sure who asked for Thursday night football, but in the NFL's never-ending conquest for ratings dominance it happened anyways. However, if you are not one of the players or viewers bemoaning the existence of this weekly ritual then we have something that might be of interest to you.
After studying the playbooks, and more importantly the announcers tendencies we have compiled a strange but regularly occurring list of incidents that will help facilitate an activity that most of us enjoy... drinking alcohol.
Don't let the fact that you still have one day left in your work week put you in a position where you have to listen to Cris Collinsworth or Tony Romo sober. Kick back in your comfy chair, grab a cold one, and embrace continuous dilution of the sport you know and love.
As always, enjoy responsibly and make sure you have a safe ride home.
