Reader Bill emailed me that Lukey had given us TWO drinks in a recent Trib article. Thinking I was on my way to pickling my liver, I was all excited, until I realized that Bill is confused about the official rules.
This isn’t the Luke Ravenstahl Forward Drinking Game … this is the Luke Ravenstahl Move Forward Drinking Game.
However, the article he linked me to is interesting because it contains the following:
1. During that hearing with women upset about the promotions of police officers with records of spousal abuse, Lukey, who would not previously disclose where he was, was at a celebrity/charity golf thingamajiggie for the Mario Lemieux Foundation. (Which, Lukey, they were going to figure it out eventually, so why not just be upfront about it?)
2. This line, which is one that Bill thought deserved a drink:
“The issues presented at the hearing are of critical importance to me and we have taken and will continue to take corrective actions to reform the system on a go-forward basis,” Ravenstahl said in the statement.
Lukey is trying to come up with other ways to say “move forward.”
He’s trying to ruin our game! Not cool, Yarone!
Now everyone is upset that Lukey went to this golf thing instead of the public hearing, but I’m kind of on Lukey’s side.
Golfing with the likes of Ben Roethlisberger (so I could point at him and tell him how gross and fug he is [Oh, calm down, minions! I haven’t said anything mean in ages. He was due.]), Dan Marino, Kevin McClatchy (so I could smack him with a putter every chance I could), and Lynn Swann (so I could throw him down and kiss him every chance I could), OR sitting in a two-hour meeting with 100 angry women yelling at me?
That’s a no-brainer.
