Happy Drinking Game Friday everyone! This weekend I’m going to Philadelphia to visit a friend I haven’t seen in over a year and a half; the very first friend I made in college; 2bird1blog’s first co-blogger—Eddie.
Eddie goes to grad school at UPenn and I couldn’t be more excited to spend a weekend in a collegiate environment. I’m going to soak it all in and do it right—stay in a dorm, pregame with Zelko and Gatorade, go to a football game, go to a frat party, take a freshman’s virginity…you know, the usual.
I absolutely love a good weekend college jaunt. I think it’s because I didn’t have the typical college experience at AU (albeit out of choice,) so when I visit a friend at their school, I get to have the Ultimate College Experience for a weekend. I’ve been fascinated with the College Experience ever since I visited Becca for the first time at Bucknell when I was 14. I walked around campus and pretended I went there; we went to the Lewisburg Wal Mart (which was legit); and like any good big sis, Becca got me drunk for the first time in the safety of her dorm while watching Troop Beverly Hills.
When I was in college, I spent many a weekend visiting my friends at their respective schools. I think I actually deserve an honorary degree from Frostburg considering the amount of time I spent there. Weekend college trips are fun because you get to experience the school’s native party style without any added academic pressures. Plus you don’t actually go there, so you can really loose all inhibitions (for example, I rushed and was accepted into a sorority at Frostburg one drunken weekend.)
I genuinely think the Travel Channel should produce a show where I spend a weekend at different colleges and investigate their party repertoire. It’s like E’s "Wild On"…but more collegiate and less hot. That could be my tagline!
Speaking of holding onto the college dream, it’s time for this week’s Drinking Game. Streak through the quad, party with Frank the Tank and put your earmuffs on—because it’s time for the Old School Drinking Game!
Take a sip when:
- Frank drinks
- Anyone says “Frank the Tank”
- Mitch is referred to as “The Godfather”
- Anyone says “Blue”
- Dean Pritchard says something sarcastic
- Speakercity is referenced or mentioned
- Someone puts earmuffs on
- Anyone gives a pledge an order
- Anytime a chain restaurant is referenced (i.e. Red Lobster, Olive Garden, KFC etc.)
And finish your drink upon the following because it’s my favorite line from the movie:
“True love is hard to find, sometimes you think you have true love and then you catch the early flight home from San Diego and a couple of nude people jump out of your bathroom blindfolded like a goddamn magic show ready to double team your girlfriend...”
Thanks for reading and see you back in the office Monday morning!
