The 2010 Women’s Figure Skating Drinking Game

... comes courtesty of the website BuzzFeed.

I don't know about you but I'm getting excited for tonight! There will be live-blogging on the New York Times if you would like to join in. You can also join via Facebook here.

I don't recommend drinking at the keyboard so you may have to pick one or the other tonight.

If you and your friends opt for the game, here are a few of my favorites:

Take a drink if: Any use of “this young lady.” Ex. This young lady was second at this years' World Championships. This young lady could surprise some folks. This young lady loves to listen to Lady Gaga before competing. Etc.

When an athlete is referred to as a “national treasure.” Ex. Kim Yu-Na is a national treasure in her native land of South Korea.

Any mention of an American figure skating legend. Ex. Peggy Flemming, Tonya Harding, Kristi Yamaguchi, Dorothy Hamil.

Take a shot if: If Scott Hamilton “knows her.”

If an athlete is wearing a HEADDRESS/hat/anything in her hair.

Any comparison of Michelle Kwan/Tara Lipinski to Mirai Nagasu/Rachael Flatt. Finish your drink if they make it a racial thing.

Any talk of “Michelle Kwan” and “the gold that eluded her.”

Chug/finish your drink:

If Frank Carroll smiles.

The Canadians skate to Sarah McLachlan.
