Tonight, the Bruins play in the last game of the first round of the Maui Jim Maui Invitational when they meet the BYU Cougars at 8:30 pm on ESPN2. Tonight’s game will feature national treasure and Bruin legend Bill Walton.

So, feel free to play the Bill Walton Drinking Game. When Bill refers to the Pac-12 as the “Conference of Champions”, you drink. When Bill mentions the Grateful Dead, you drink. When Bill mentions one of his UCLA teammates, you drink. When Bill mentions Coach, you pause out of respect for Coach and you don’t drink because Coach might not approve. When Bill says, “Throw it down, Big Man!” drink once if the player is on UCLA and twice if he is on BYU. When Bill talks about his travels in Hawai’i, take a drink. If Bill talks about his travels outside the US, drink twice. Drink each time Bill utters the words “Maui Jim” in succession. Every time Bill insults his partner Dave Pasch, you drink. Then, you drink again when Pasch just sits there and takes it.
