Drink Like a Champion Today

As the T-shirt says.

I had challenged readers to come up with a drinking game based on watching Spokane TV news.

I'm not really encouraging people to mindlessly consume alcohol. I just wondered what readers might suggest. 

And a friend, who noted that if this weather keeps up we're almost certain to have a white Christmas, had a few ideas.

He named names and all. But, even though this blog is pretty obscure, I have no wish to be considered a big meanie. So I've decided to leave out the names. Still, perhaps you will recognize a few of these broadcasters despite that.

Every time a certain gentleman says “weather-wise,” you drink.

Every time a certain anchor smacks her lips, you drink.

Every time another anchor tacks on an unnecessary tone-restatement — “Tragic situation,” “Thoughtful cab driver,” et cetera — you drink.

And then there's one that would have every game player hammered in short order.

Every time someone says “Reporting live,” you drink.
