The Official 2006 NFL Draft Drinking Game

As we've mentioned in other places, we're always wary of getting too excited about the NFL Draft, which always has an oddly pedophilic vibe to us, with all the talk of lean muscles and wide ends from fat sweaty guys in their mid-50s. But that's just us, and we realize we're in the minority. Over the weekend, The Mighty MJD will be joined by Football Outsiders' Michael David Smith for a big orgy of draft debauchery. It'll be fun.

But if that's still not enough for you, reader Stephen Benefield of Birmingham, Ala., is here to help. He sends us a helpful NFL Draft Drinking Game that should pretty much wipe you out by the time the Buzzsaw picks at No. 10. A highlight:

Cutler went to Vandy, so he's smart - 1 drink
Draft pick gives interview. 1 drink for every grammatical error.
Draft pick far too underdressed - 2 drinks
Camera shot of last undrafted, languishing pick - 3 drinks
A happy posse celebrating - 5 drinks
Vikings miss allotted time to make pick - 10 drinks

We're going to be plodding through the always-fun "Fiancee's parents meet your own" game all day Saturday, so, you know, we're gonna need this game. The full Drinking Game rules are after the jump. Feel free to add your own.
