Will Tom Thibideau shout himself hoarser? Will the absence of Ariza and Green hurt the Rockets? Will the TNT announcing crew and studio show once again produce a lingering sense of frustration?

Would you be interested in a "Rockets on TNT" drinking game? Or at least scoring it as if it was a drinking game is an alcohol related coma seems too much to give to fandom? We never would encourage actual binge underage or illegal drinking here at TDS, as we respect shareholder value too much for that, but how about we just see who racks up the high score?

I say we have certain phrases or discussions that prompt a "drink" or "+1+ to everyone's game tally, and then everyone playing chooses one unique phrase or theme that only applies to them, for scoring purposes.

Rockets shoot the most 3s in the league.
