Since the day they removed Mike Lange from the duties of announcing the TV games on FSN a few disgruntled Penguin fans have been up in arms about the hiring of Paul Steigerwald and Bob Errey. “The Official Fire Paul Steigerwald and Bob Errey Movement” has had an online petition for a couple years to try to get rid of Steigy and Errey and has already at the time of this post amassed 82 signatures.
The good people at ESPN can’t figure out why Pittsburgh doesn’t give them the “proper amount of love in the City of Champions“. Michael Farber has them on his short list of 7 NHL people who you hardly know but who make their teams or the game better.
Steigy and Errey don’t have the “Get in the Fast lane Grandma…” or the “Hunt Moose on a Harley” but they do have the “He Clears the Puck, But Not Out“, or the “Two Headed Picklestabbing Waterbug Monsters” and maybe much to much talk about the players “Long Sticks“. I personally don’t mind them at all, the talk the other night about how the Philly stat keepers were not counting up the hits the Penguins were dishing out and eventually removing the Penguins scores had me laughing a bit.
If you hate them, we have a way to make the games a bit more bearable. If you love them, we have a way to make your in-laws a bit more tolerable over the holidays.
The Steigy & Errey Drinking Game
We play this all the time at PenguinPoop gatherings. We would welcome any phrases to add to our current list.
First: Everyone picks a phrase/word from the list below, If you have more than 8 people two people can use the same phrase. .
|Two Headed Monster||Picklestabber|
|Sends it Around the Horn||Throws it to the Net|
|Blew a Tire Out||Power-move|
When you here them say your phrase, you direct someone else playing to take a drink, it’s that simple.
If you miss your own phrase and at least one minute of hockeytime goes by without you mentioning it someone can call you out and make you chug. You can either use rewind or must have at least two people verify it was said.
Second: Socials – Everyone must drink
- Anytime Bob Errey asks “Are you kidding me?”
- Anytime Steigerwald pronounces “Wend” as “wind” as in “the wind is blowing” an example would be “he ‘winds’ his way into the zone”
- If Errey asks for help from Steigy… like “Help me out here Steigy”
- Any talk of Staal, Chara or any other players “Long Stick”
Third: Then there’s what we like to call the “Two Headed Monster”
When you hear “Cleared the Puck, but not Out” you must chug your beer as fast as you can, last one to finish must do a shot of the groups choosing . Hence the “Two Headed Monster”
I personally recommend playing the game with Donnie Iris’s new KING COOL LIGHT!
