PHOTO: Introducing the NHL playoffs drinking game!

I am a big fan of sports-related drinking games. My personal favorite is during football season, having to drink whenever Jon Gruden says “this guy” when calling a game. Everyone is unconscious by the fourth quarter. Below is a creative drinking game for the NHL playoffs, and if the rules are followed, expect some people to end up praying to the porcelain god by game’s end!

Joe Rogan: Ronda Rousey could beat Floyd Mayweather

There are things some people say that just make me question their intelligence.

Kevin Gilbride on Eli Manning declining: “Ludicrous.”

(Credit: surgxsportsblitz.com) It is normal for a coach to come to the defense of one of his players, but they don’t do it out of pity. New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride is firmly in the corner of his quarterback Eli Manning, although it would be easy for Gilbride to deflect the blame onto Manning for the Giants’ poor 2013 season.
