It was only a matter of time until someone created a drinking game based off of Gov. Andy Beshear’s 5 p.m. briefings. Play along with LRS 102, a digital rock radio stream. A sampling of the rules: take two drinks when Andy says “Don’t be that person.” Even that might be enough to get you smashed before 6. As an aside, check out the cover photo LRS is using to promote its event. Look familiar?
