Been thinking about a Scripps National Spelling Bee Championship drinking game for the last couple of days, here's what I got.
Awkward crustache: 2 drinks
Voice crack: 2 drinks
Contestant goes through all motions of asking definition, language of origin, word to be used in
sentence, etc even if you can tell they KNOW the word: 1 drink
Awkward hi-five between contestants: 1 drink
Youngest contestant to podium: 1 drink
Oldest contestant to podium 1 drink
Goofy banter between judges and contestant: 2 drinks
Contestant mimes spelling word on lanyard: 1 drink
Disappointed parents after misspelled word: 1 drink
Finalist yells out each letter of final word when they know they're gonna win: Drink + Congratulate
Contestant faints in middle of spelling word, gets up, finished spelling correctly: Finish all the booze you have.
Anyone got anything else? This probably would have worked better for the semi-finals, but oh well, I was busy. We can build on this for next year.
