I've always wanted to start off with that. Yes, it's gimmicky. But so are many other facets of this organization. You know. Bryan Murray's lisp. Cory Clouston's Mexx addiction. Eugene Melnyk's public comments. About time we as fans embrace our place within the gimmick that is the Ottawa Senators of 2011.
So Sens Army(!!), we have found ourselves to be in quite the peculiar position. We now cheer for our team to lose, and we cheer for our team to win. It's confusing to be an Ottawa fan right now for sure, as all of our standards and expectations have completely evaporated, and we have little left with which to put these remaining games into context.
In an effort to make the tank watch more enjoyable, it is obvious that a drinking game must be developed and put into place for all Sens fans to use as a coping mechanism. Or as an excuse to get truculent and vandalize Leafs paraphernalia.
So hey, how about this. I'll start, with the first five drinking game rules, and you, the Sens Army (!!!) can come up with the rest.
Rule 1. If an AHL call up scores a goal, drink.
Rule 2. If Ryan Shannon quarterbacks the powerplay, drink.
Rule 3. If Nick Foligno tries to dangle 3 opposing players in the neutral zone and coughs it up, drink.
Rule 5. If a Senator is lost indefinitely due to injury, drink x 2.
