DHS 6: It just tasted horrible

It’s the day after and shockingly, there is no hangover. We took the time to appreciate our fans with our first ever #FansEpisode — alas, the usual technical difficulties occurred  It’s like there’s a gremlin in the studio! That didn’t stop us from having a fun time on the Drunk Hockey Show  with just the hosts. In the studio was Marshall Stevenson (@spryd) and co-host “that drunk guy” Jeff Stevenson (@WWoJeff).

It was a bit of an odd episode complete with a lot of alcohol consumed by the two guys, and who can forget the multiple personalities that all showed up thanks to the drinking game. Of course, they were sporting new threads from the Drunk Hockey Show shop by Offside Gear.

We touched on the new Molson Canadian NHL PrePlay™ app for iPhone (and Android) as well as the Budweiser Red Lights™ and how it’s clear the NHL is attempting to bring the experience of a game more closely integrated with their fans.

There was a thought to touch base on the Tim Thomas trade, but Jeff — or an alter ego of his — pointed out that it was covered on the last episode of the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Podcast.

We had a great caller from Saskatchewan who carried along with the accent game — or at least we hope it was. It was timely as we discussed adding an NHL team in Saskatchewan and if the economics of it could work. Of course, that’s what we thought we were talking about, but we truly can’t recall.

Then it came time for one of the more popular segments of the show — the drunk dial. Rich McNabb came out of the woodwork to make some calls and managed to connect with four different people. Two hangups, one call back and a total “gotcha” were a blast to be a part of.

Speaking of the drunk dial, if you’d like to be the recipient of a dial on an upcoming show, or would like to nominate a victim, then head complete the simple form to get drunk dialed. It’s fun, but of course remember that it’s late at night on a Tuesday and you need to be 18 or older.

We of course couldn’t leave out The Drunk Tank — a quick five question trivia segment. It was Jeff vs Marshall. The right answer made the other drink. Marshall took it by stumping Jeff 3 times, but that meant he also had to chug two beers — which was more like “sipping tea.” For a list of the questions and answers, scroll down.

At the end of the show, the beer count was favourable, unlike the brain cells.

Jeff drank 6 beers tied with Marshall’s 6 — down a few from the previous episode. The boat race result was what you would say quite pathetic with 1:49.7 as the total time or 27.4 seconds average per beer. About “2-minutes of that time” was Marshall. Someone clearly needs to teach him how to drink!
