So today I learned about a game called Sloshball. Bascially it's a baseball with a keg on second base. Apparently you can't go by 2nd base without slamming a beer and of course everyone is required to have a beer in their hands the whole game. If you all thought you were crazy playing baseball before image it after slamming a beer or two.
As I was looking for the rules of sloshball I came across an article from the UCSB newspaper. It reminded me of a game I had forgotten about which I think is an IV original: The Dog Shit Park Bike Races. Basically there are three people to a team. You are to complete 45 laps and 45 beers (between the three team mates) to win. Basically the team mates alternate laps slamming a beer once they finish each lap. I once saw part of these bike races on IVTV (IVTV is created by two grad students go around Isla Vista and tape the stupid things UCSB students do and then put in on cable access.) The grossness of this is unmatched. If contestants have to puke they must do it while on a bike. People were falling, bikes were too small, people were dressed funny for the even, beer and puke was everywhere and while it was very disgusting it was also somehow very funny. Ha ha that drunkard just feel off his puked on bike ha ha. Well alright right now it doesn't sound funny. But it was. Then. On tv. Live might not be so cool with the smell factor.
Why I'm writing about drinking games I don't know, but I just found it interesting and a strange phenomenon. I mean the lengths people will go to. Or should I say the things people come up with? My mind is boggled and amused. Maybe it's just because I've never played any of these games. Maybe I'm secretly fascinated. Maybe not, but here's a website with a whole bunch of drinking game options. They even have one for Better Off Dead. Oh how I love you John Cusak.Posted by nuala at October 25, 2002 01:41 PM
