Tim McCarver drinking game

I don’t drink much and never played drinking games (except that one time we played a Star Wars drinking gameā€” the “drink every time Luke whines” rule alone will quickly get you hammered).

But here’s a Tim McCarver drinking game. Drink each time McCarver:

  1. Proclaims a Universal Law of Baseball (attempts to use an inconsequential play or minor occurrence to reveal some larger truth about cause and effect in the sport). Drink again if thatĀ Universal Law of Baseball conflicts with a previous Universal Law of Baseball.
  2. After gushing about a hot player and making him seem infallible, finally notes that player’s faults or weakness once it becomes self-evident. I admit this is as much a Joe Buck defect as a McCarver one.
  3. Speaks when the television screen depicts an action upon which no words could possibly improve.

Feel free to suggest more rules.

One thought on “Tim McCarver drinking game”

  1. I have another one:

    Drink every time he describes the tortuously winding path of a pitch past the hitter’s bat, even though it, like every pitch, it only appears to sink a little bit.
