For non-native New Englanders, Patriots’ Day commemorates the battles of Lexington and Concord during the Revolutionary War. The civic holiday is celebrated in Massachusetts and Maine, and is always celebrated on the third Monday in April.
If this sounds like a totally BS holiday to you, that’s because it is. It also happens to be the day that the Boston Marathon is run – so to many locals it’s known merely as Marathon Monday. Whatever you want to call it, it’s merely an excuse for Bostonians to drink on a Monday.
Your regularly scheduled justgngr someecard weekly post has been delayed… due to an unknown error at the someecards website that is currently going on. Instead, I bring you the drinking game for tonight’s third and final Presidential debate surrounding foreign policy.
Also stay tuned tonight for hilarious tweets/retweets/mentions from @justgngr and friends!
Tonight is the second debate between President Obama and former Governor Mitt Romney. The debate is being held at Hofstra University in New York. I posted a debate drinking game for the first debate, and true to form – here is another one for the tonight’s debate. Tonight’s debate is a little different since it involves audience members asking questions – and given Jim Lehrer’s lackluster performance in the first debate, the drinking game incorporates moderate Candy Crowley as well.
Good luck to both candidates… and happy drinking!
Awhile back, I posted a drinking game for the Olympic Opening Ceremony. Well for those of you planning to watch tonight’s first Presidential debate, have no fear, justgngr is here for you. Although, I suggest that if you have to work tomorrow morning – cut the drinks in half.
Btw, the debates start tonight at 9pm, Eastern Standard Time.
For those of you who have never seen the British comedy Absolutely Fabulous – well you’re missing out and this picture will mean nothing to you. And also, you should go out immediately and watch some Absolutely Fabulous (or AbFab for those in the know). There have been a few pictures floating around the internets with Patsie and Edina and the Olympics… but I quite like this one.
So as many of you know, the Olympics start today. There’s been a lot going on in England this year, and the Olympics are sure to cap off a stellar 2012 for the United Kingdom. Of course there’s been crazy press about there not being enough security forces for the games, and Grindr crashing as all of the athletes (who are supposedly not all gay… ahem) arrived in London this week.
On a lighter note, a friend posted a great drinking game for the opening ceremonies on Facebook, and I thought I would share. And lastly, a great someecard that is all too true about the United States and politics. Hope everyone enjoys the opening ceremonies tonight and the next few days of the 2012 Olympic Games.
So I’ve been posting a few of the someecards on the blog every so often. And after last week’s discussion with a fellow blogger and follower about the Twitter movie themes – I’ve decided it’s time for some themes. So check out the blog every Monday for a new hilarious someecard and every Hump Day (Wednesday for those of you unfamiliar with the nomenclature) for a new Twitter movie quote theme. Today’s someecard post is inspired by a rather alcoholic weekend but I’m sure many will approve regardless.
