Granted, I don’t drink anymore, but watching Rocky take down The Russian is a holiday tradition in our household. Any holiday, really, but especially July 4. (Game copyright Justin “Thunder Lips” Golak.)
- Anytime there’s cake.
- Anytime someone drinks something. Double if it’s alcohol.
- Anytime a new round starts.
- Anytime someone speaks Russian.
- Anytime someone arrives in a new country.
- Anytime you see the press.
- Anytime anyone gets knocked down.
- Anytime someone says Drago or Rocky. Double if they say the full name. Triple if anyone says Paulie.
- Anytime you LOVE AMERICA!
And some additions if you’re playing with me.
- Anytime I tell you Drago actor Dolph Lundgren is super smart and was attending MIT until he got a modeling contract.
- Anytime you wish you had a robot or recall an ‘80s movie putting one into a scene for seemingly no redeeming value other than that they had a robot on set.
USA! USA! USA!
