The Dave Johnson Drinking Game[edit]

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).


Personal life[edit]

Consor works with Men Against Breast Cancer and the Washington Animal Rescue League,[1] is married and is the father to two sons, Kenny and Jonny.

Style[edit]

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.
