OK all you crazy college kids out there that need a reason to drink on a Monday night. Well if you need a reason to drink while at college you have a lot to learn, but anyway this will make it easier for all you guys to head over to the girls dorm and watch The Hills. We know you only watch because of the hotties, but deep down you know you have a Team Lauren shirt under your J.Crew roll neck sweater while you wear those $5 knit mittens you picked up outside the cafe after you were approved for your first credit card and got the cool frisbee! Now go use the credit card to buy beer and lots of it because this game has a lot of oppotunity!
