With the Winter Olympics kicking off in Sochi this week, everyone will be glued to the opening ceremonies, which will be broadcast live on Friday night at 7:30 on NBC. If you’re like me and didn’t train for 20 years to compete, you’ll just have to grab a beer and join in the only event we’re qualified for: the Opening Ceremony Drinking Game!
