The Dave Johnson Drinking Game
On Jan 24th, 2014, "The Dave Johnson Drinking Game" was introduced. This was the creation of Twitter follower @DidTheCapsWin.
The creation of the game was based on the comments made by Washington Wizards Radio Play by Play person, Dave Johnson and , Glenn Consor on Washington Wizards game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Jan 20th, 2014 when a ball bounced off of Wizards forward Jan Vesely. Johnson said that it was a "kick ball" and Consor asked why he made a soccer reference.
Johnson's work with DC United was referenced when @DidTheCapsWin asked him during the game if he thought he was really covering a DC United - Philadelphia Union game (The two Major League Soccer teams in the corresponding cites).
The rules of this game are.
1.) If Dave Johnson makes a soccer reference, you are to have a shot. A shot can be consumed if Glenn Consor makes a soccer reference first because he "is doing it because of Dave"
2.) If a reference to another sport is made by either Johnson or Consor, you are to have a beer.
3.) If Consor lets Johnson finish a sentence, you are to have another shot (though a full bottle of wine has been suggested)
4.) This game is to only be played at home (as requested by Johnson).
Consor works with Men Against Breast Cancer and the Washington Animal Rescue League, is married and is the father to two sons, Kenny and Jonny.
He is a no-nonsense analyst who "tells it as it is" and is an "Xs and Os" guy. He is often referred to as a "meat and potatoes" broadcaster due to his blue collar approach to play calling.
