What's the World's Drinking Game? It sounds like something my friends and I would enjoy while watching the Worlds.
Go to FSUniverse and do a search. That's how I found it. I don't know if I can directly link to it or not. It looks like it'll be fun. My brother and I are eating Kahlua cake instead of drinking it straight.
I keep getting Flight Simulator Universe? Can you post a link? Thanks, by the way!
The link is www.fsuniverse.net. I always accidentally type in .com. I've really enjoyed that site as a spoiled person for this Championship.
Thank's Doggygirl! Looks like we'll be getting pretty wasted on Saturday night.
I just now went and actually searched for the drinking game thread and read it. ROFLMAO!!!!! Too funny. Yes, all players will definitely be wasted long before the final free program flight begins.
Does anyone know why they won't allow you to register? I registered last November but don't post much and now they won't let me use my ID or password? Can anyone give me info on how they do things over there?
I recall seeing something when I registered on Sunday (just under the wire!) that they close down registrations while World's are going on. I think it has to do with concerns about site traffic during the competition and the load on their server.
As an example, while events are going on they have rules such as only pushing "refresh" no more than once every five minutes, and they also restrict posting to sponsors only (I think that means people who donate to the site) once the number of people on line reaches 500.
It's been interesting since a lot of the members are from Europe, and are posting comments as they are watching on TV while I'm only able to listen to the audio feed from Eurosport. So it seems many people go on-line to get some "live action feedback" during the events.
It's interesting that you were registered before, and aren't now. We should find out how that works to make sure we are registered in the right time frame for the next big season.
Mean time, I wish I could copy that post because it is absolutely hilarious. But of course that's against policy at both ends, so won't do that. Just trust me, Dick and Peggy's remarks (and other standard things) are pretty predictable in the US coverage model. That's sort of the basis of the joke, and you would DEFINITELY be hammered by the end of it all if it were a "real" game.
I couldn't get into the thing to read it, either, but I had a feeling it probably had something to do with Peggy & Dick. With Dick Button, I would imagine it would have something to do with the amount of times he says his chosen word or phrase of the night; he has a tendency to use it with every single skater and it seems to vary with each competition and each night -- but you can usually figure out what it's going to be about halfway through the second skater shown.:D
I think I'm actually going to try this Friday night
It sounds like a good way to get a fun night started!!!
Johnny, you're definitely on the right track. Heck, we would ALL be hammered if we simply took a sip every time Dick says "that was first rate" or "that layback position needs improvement."
Peggy gushing about Sasha being unbeatable before she even skates, or re-runs of Dick's spins from back before we were born require chugging.
Take a sip when Suzie does an "Ice Move." Chug if the "Ice Move" is done in a harness. LOLOL!
OK - I've probably stepped over the line already, but since this is just a fun thing and not a serious report about a skater's performance I hope I will be forgiven.
Kara...I am MIGHTY JEALOUS that you can play on Friday night!!! No coverage here in the US that I know of on Friday night. So....I guess I'll have to play tonight! That will give me tomorrow to recover, and then play again on Saturday.
Mmmh, Kahlua cake sounds delicious! What about posting the recipe for that in the "Le Cafe"-forum? :DOriginally posted by childfreegirl

I'm sort of playing (not really, but do have an adult beverage in hand LOL) and am LOSING by having to take sips every time Dick mentions "flailing arms" and "nit picking."
Heheh I have a recipe for Bailey Brownie....Interested?Originally posted by Evdokia

Here it is....
Posted: 21 Mar 2004 00:01 Post subject:
3 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
1/2 c. butter
1 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs, beaten
3 T. Bailey's Irish Creme
2/3 c. flour
Dash of salt
2/3 C. chocolate chips
Melt unsweetened chocolate with butter (I use the microwave - 'bout two and a half minutes in a pyrex bowl). Mix well, until chocolate is completely melted. Cool.
Beat sugar and eggs together in mixing bowl. Add Bailey's and cooled chocolate mixture. Mix well. Stir in flour, salt and chocolate chips. Pour into greased and floured 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 325 for 35 minutes (test with wooden pick). Cool completely (about 1 1/2 hours).
Pierce brownies with wooden pick randomly. Drizzle Bailey's over the brownies then frost (I drizzle about the same amount as what I put in the mix - 3 T.).
3 T. softened butter
4 T. Bailey's
3 c. powdered sugar
In mixing bowl combine Bailey's and butter. Mix well. Gradually add confectioners sugar and beat until spreading consistency. Frost cooled brownies.
(Sometimes I don't frost 'em at all. They're good with just a sprinkling of powdered sugar over 'em.)
