I'll tell you! Turn that boredom upsey-daisy! Play the Jeremy Shockey drinking game! It's easy! It's fun! And it gets you drunk! Let the NFL's excessive overexposure of the mercurial Giants' Tight End work for you! Here's how to play:
1) Get a 12- or 24-pack of your favorite beverage! Beer works best. Pop only works for making you pee. Wine coolers and alcoholic malt beverages are acceptable for girls.
2) Find a comfortable spot, one where you will land softly when you pass out. Open your beverage and turn on the Giants game! (If you are at a bar, best to get a pitcher or two.)
3) Begin! Here's how the scoring works!
ONE DRINK IF... Shockey catches a pass; Shockey's name is mentioned when he is on the field; Shockey is shown in a replay throwing a block; Shockey drops a pass; Shockey is shown laughing on the sideline; an announcer compares Shockey to another white Tight End like Todd Heap or Christian Fauria; Shockey is called for a penalty; an announcer mentions Shockey went to the University of Miami.
TWO DRINKS IF... Shockey is mentioned when he had nothing to do with the play; Shockey is shown on the sideline when the Giants are on offense; Shockey drops a pass on 3rd down; Shockey's name is mentioned even though he is inactive for the game; Shockey is compared to a Tight End of Color like Randy McMichael or Tony Gonzalez; Shockey makes the "first-down" sign after catching a pass; Shockey is flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.
THREE DRINKS IF... Shockey is shown on the sideline when the Giants are on defense; Shockey drops a touchdown pass; Shockey gets in another player's face; Shockey gets into a fight with another player; Shockey's appearance on Howard Stern is mentioned by an announcer; Shockey is ejected from the game; John Madden mentions Shockey's name more than 3 times or more within the context of one sentence [Monday Night Football special rule!].
FINISH YOUR BEVERAGE IF...! Shockey catches a touchdown pass (don't worry, this has only happened two times in four years); Shockey gets into a fight with a fan OR throws a cup of ice at a kid; Shockey is carried off the field or is killed during the game; Shockey cries.
Make sure you make the appropriate arrangements to get home. And don't feel bad if you have to quit at halftime. Even Giants games can be fun, if you know how to watch!
