Mitch McGary Celebration Drinking Thread

Submitted by JimLahey on November 3rd, 2011 at 5:48 PM

As promised three months ago, here is your Jim Lahey Shit-tastic Mitch McGary celebratory drinking thread. People like to say that one player can't change a program...and they're stupid.

I'm drinking whiskey with a splash of Costco brand carbonated water. Tastes like sweet, sweet victory.

I plan on getting drunk and passing out at 9:30 so I have plenty of sleep for early class tomorrow.

I hope Mitch himself comes onto this site to see just how excited he alone made this university. Do you think he would have gotten this type of reception from Duke or Florida?

Since I'm a Wisconsin resident, I'll down an icy cold Miller High Life followed by a PBR chaser.   For desert, a delicious New Glarus microbrew.   Can't wait to see a kick-ass Wolverines hoops lineup raid the Kohl Center this year and next year.   Welcome aboard, Mitch.   You're the icing on the cake in an already solid recruiting class.   BTW, the Badgers are ultra-pesky and damned near impossible to beat on their home turf, so bring your "A+" game to Madison.

i just took the Wonderlic super version yesterday for a job i'm interviewing for - felt like a nervous undergrad when i dialed it up.  bttm line:  the testing never ends - just manifests itself different ways throughout life. 

pumped for MM  to come aboard, welcome White Thunder, good luck to you + your new team mates, and GO BLUE!

We may look back years down the road and point to this as the turning point of the program.  While it may be huge, it's obvious to me at least that all of this was put in motion by last year's squad.  Without the significant contributions of that team, this probably isn't possible

People who say "one player can't change a program" are almost always right in football, and right most of the time in basketball.  McGary, though, an exception to the rule.  

No cocktails for me tonight, though: make mine coffee, please.

I have a paper to write tonight, so I'm going to have to postpone my celebration drinking until Saturday. Regardless though, McGary!!!

the Judge.  Loved watching Antoine on the court.  Other teams would always make fun of how he looked (a little doughy and soft) and then he'd go ahead and drop 30 point on them.

I'm drinking all the Kool-Aid, at 5pm I had a giant Happy PItcher run through my office wall! And in April of 2013 I hope I'm drinking Champagne! If not sooner!

GOOOOOOOOO BLUE, what a day!!!

I was on 696 when I found out. And from one of the biggest D bags ever....Valenti. Sounded like he wanted to cry when he announced it.

I got home, cracked a Dirty Bastard and changed my oil.
