To make things extra interesting, the alcohol experts at Supercall have concocted an epic drinking game to keep you well-lubricated throughout the final matches of the ultra-hyped soccer tournament.
In an apparent attempt to keep participants from getting totally wrecked by halftime, the rules call for a "sips" following more frequent occurrences like unison chants or flops and "gulps" following goals or player substitutions. In the event of a tie game or red card, get ready to chug.
Grab a glass and read up!
Take a sip:
- Whenever someone asks you if you’re skipping work to watch this game (and you will definitely be skipping work to watch, since games happen between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the United States).
- Every time an announcer mentions that the United States failed to qualify.
- Every time the only sound you can hear is the crowd chanting in unison.
- Every time someone lays on the ground looking injured.
- Every time that person gets up and seems totally fine.
- Every 30 seconds during extra time.
Take a big gulp:
- Whenever someone scores a goal.
- Every time there is a substitution.
- Every time you see someone cry on camera.
- Whenever a player pleads his case to the referee.
- Whenever an announcer mentions Iceland if Iceland is not playing.
Finish your drink:
- If there is an own goal (finish your drink right now if you don’t know what an own goal is).
- If Fox cuts to a pre-taped segment about one of the countries playing in the game.
- If a red card is handed out.
- If the game ends in a tie.
