Hello Niners Nation!
Another season football awaits us! I know everybody is eagerly awaiting to see what Harbaugh and Co. will unveil for us on September 11th. Will this playbook have more than 4 plays? (Almost assuredly.) Will Alex finally look like a 1st round worthy quarterback? Can the O-Line get its act together? Can Lord Fangio elevate the Defense to contender status?
These are all questions that we will be asking leading up to the Seahawks game, but in the meantime I would like to ask this question:
What should be the rules for the Niners Nation drinking game?
I think it'd be cool to brainstorm some basic rules for when we need to drink, and then possible compile them into an official list sometime before the game.
Some off the top of my head are:
-"What's your deal" is mentioned or referenced.
-Replays of Stanford-USC football games when Harbaugh and Carroll were coaching.
-Camera cuts to Pete Carroll pumping his fist or jumping up and down the sideline.
-Jack/John Harbaugh mentioned (double-shot if the phrase "runs in the family" is used)
-Moran Norris (should he make the team) misses a block
-Ted Ginn drops a pass (double-shot if it's intercepted)
-Dive up the middle on 1st down.
-Crabtree/Camp Alex drama is mentioned.
-Old video/photo of Harbaugh playing QB (triple-shot if some announcer makes the silly "I bet you he can still put on the pads and play!" comment)
-Announcer complaining about new kickoff rule while using the phrase "I understand it's for player safety, but..."
-Seam route to VD
-Alex getting sacked before finishing his dropback.
-A clever rule about Singletary/Raye [can't think of one right now]
I'm sure we can come up with more and better ones! (LondonNiner and mcwagner, I'm looking at you!)
