The Sopranos drinking game

May 6, 2007 at 1:02 am (The Easy Chair)

It’s approaching closing time on a Saturday night, and I’m sitting here, sober as a church mouse. While I have no inclination to drink tonight, I did think of a fun excuse to drink to excess, if you’re the sort of person who needs a reason, that is.

After borrowing a line or so from Goodfellas the other day, I felt compelled to watch it. I had not previously seen it without ingesting several drinks first, and therefore had forgotten how it ended. It was like seeing it for the first time, in a way.

Great movie, pure Scorsese. The only distraction? Seeing virtually the whole supporting cast of The Sopranos, in their much younger days. Lorraine Bracco, young, stunning, sssmokin’. Phil Leotardo looking like a 70’s Jay Leno. Big Pussy hiding mink coats in a meat locker. (Don’t blink or you’ll miss him.)

So it got me to thinking- what if you took a shot of whiskey, or tequila, or gin, or whatever you like getting sloppy with, every time you saw a Sopranos cast member? It would make a great last episode party.

Just take everyone’s car keys. There’s a lot of goombah in this movie.
