The 2012 MLB All-Star Drinking Game

2012 MLB All Star Game Logo RoyalsThe 2012 MLB All-Star game is approaching. Though I feel the baseball All-Star game is more interesting than the all-star games of other professional sports, it’s still pretty damn boring. Of course one way to make it more interesting is to make a drinking game out of it.

Since my annual Super Bowl Drinking Game has been very popular, why not make another version? So with that in mind, here is the first Living with Balls, MLB All-Star Drinking Game!

As always my lawyers have asked me to make this statement:

This drinking game is not for the casual drinker. Proceed with caution. Living with Balls is not responsible if you get violently ill from playing this game. Feel free to adjust the rules to your tolerance or just quit playing when you’re good and drunk.

You’ll need beer and some hard liquor. There are a few possibilities for taking shots.

Take a sip of beer every time a player tips his cap to the crowd during pre-game introductions.

Take an additional sip every time a player in pre-game introductions is booed heavily

Take a sip of beer every time R.A. Dickey throws a knuckle ball

Drink beer for five seconds every time the catcher drops one of R. A. Dickey’s knuckleballs
