Georgetown, the Coyotes and drinking games
I'm not sure I have much to add to the exciting news that the Phoenix Coyotes beat some Georgetown students at Flip Cup during a visit to Rhino on Saturday night, but I'd feel bad if I didn't try. Mostly because it immediately called to mind the GW vs. Georgetown online war in 2007, concerning which school was better at producing drinking game champions.
"Why do you think GW students are such better beer pong players than Georgetown students?" Clay Travis asked two Colonials at the time.
"First of all, I'm glad that this is common knowledge," one of them replied. "But I think the reason is that Georgetown just doesn't recruit as heavily as GW does when it comes to drinking sports. I heard their women's varsity flip cup team just got beaten by American 38-2, and their quarters squad had to forfeit the rest of the season due to injuries and a lack of players. GW students just know what's up when it comes to competitive drinking. And everything else for that matter."
And that was before Georgetown banned beer pong from dorms, further crippling potential avenues of all-around drinking game improvement. (Note: I'm not making light of drinking games. They are dangerous, improper precursors to devil worship and intense NHL fandom, etc.) And so we see how the Coyotes roll. Having been taken to school by the Eastern Conference's finest, they availed themselves upon a second-tier D.C. drinking game school, sneaking out of town without allowing the GW students a fair chance to redeem D.C.'s honor.
As for Saturday's game, NBC Washington's Kate Michael--whom I first met at Alex Ovechkin's 21st birthday party--reported that it was a no-contest, I think.
Despite their routine and intense studies in the field of flip cup, the students were stunned by the icemen's skills at the toss. And the Coyotes got a rare off-the-ice chance at a hat trick as the students begged to bet on the "best of three."
I'm not sure a "best-of-three" really lends itself to hat tricks. Someone's been playing too much flip cup.
