Let me first say that I love John McEnroe. Here I am pictured in my Johnny Mac tee. But, over the course of many years and many hours watching and listening to him provide knowledgeable and witty tennis color commentary, I have noticed that he has some habits. And the John McEnroe Drinking Game was born. I recommend adding a Pimm’s Cup or glass of champagne to your Breakfast at Wimbledon on Friday morning for the Djokovic vs. Federer match.
Take one sip:
If he mentions a player’s height.
If he brings up his nostalgia for wooden rackets or gut strings.
Take two sips:
If he makes a proclamation. (He is playing the best tennis of his life! He is the best returner on tour!)
If he talks about his wish to add a fifth set tie break.
If he mentions practicing with a current tour player.
Take three sips:
If he mentions Jimmy Connors or Vitas Gerulaitis.
If he says: “This could be Andy Roddick’s year!”
