“So mysterious to meeeeee”

It feels like just yesterday that Ryan Lochte and his grill swam their way into our hearts, but, it’s time once again to rally around a new pantheon of athletic demigods.

Win the drinking lottery

The housing lottery can be a difficult and trying time. The angst, the tears, the cheers. It can be a lot to keep up with.

If you already picked your room and want to treat lottery as the spectator sport that it is, or if your number is so bad you may never pick a room, we have the activity for you.

Presenting … the drinking lottery!

Head to Sayles at 6 p.m. or boot up the lottery results and get ready for the chaos to set in. (And as recent studies show, you don’t even have to worry about the consequences.)

The rules:

– Drink when all the rooms in a building are gone

– Drink for no shows

– Drink if a room you lived in or near is chosen

– Drink if a room you had sexual relations in is chosen

– Finish your drink if someone starts crying at the podium

And for a play-by-play of all the drama, stay on BlogDailyHerald for part two of our LIVE minute-by-minute coverage.
