OT - Home Run Derby... AKA a waste of time without a drinking game...

This is so dumb.  But I'm watching it.  And drinking.  Drinking game rules?

Easy rule/game:

Every time Chris Berman makes you want to hit a puppy, drink.  If you're alive before the end of the first round (approximately 3 am, Thursday) you win.

Besides, it seems like every year someone hits an amazing amount of home runs to get to the finals, and then is so tired that he can't do shit in the finals and loses.  A player is almost better off doing just enough to move on in the first round.

I'd like to see if players can control on where he hit the ball. Basically target hitting.  If he hits in a certain area of target, he get certain amount of points depending on the area. Bullseyes are worth more.  They get 12-15 swings.  The targets are placed all over the outfield.


Just my random thoughts on how to change things up to make it exciting or at least interesting.

call it.  Either home run or out.  Non-swings don't count.

If you're wrong you drink.  If you're right you're friend does.

then alternate

Secret Life of an American Teenager was on.  Anything interesting happen in the Derby?  A few home runs perhaps?  Some friends become enemies, enemies become friends?

My brother and I are playing it as a prediction game. We each make a guess before each player hits as to how may he will end up with. Drink once for every homer we were short/over. Also, any ball over 500 ft. we chug a beer. Every time that douchey teenager acts like a hero when he makes a catch we do a shot of tequila. Long night ahead.

A few years back, my buddies an I did a shot of beer for every home run. It was also the year Hamilton went yard like 20+ times in a row. I was ready to fist fight my dad.

Baseball is beyond awful. I wish it would just go away. Anyone else want to fight Chris Berman in a cage match?
"BACK BACK BACK BACK BACK BACK....GONE!" So annoying. Why am I watching?
