The Travis Meyer Drinking Game

Pregame

1. Everyone selects a storm chaser other than Von Caster. Every time Travis talks to your storm chaser, you take one drink. Take two drinks every time we see footage from your storm chaser. Take four drinks if your storm chaser says "tornado on the ground." 

2. Everyone selects a county other than Pottawatomie County. (Pottawatomie County is much the same as Free Space in Bingo.) Every time Travis mentions your county, you take one drink. Take two drinks every time we see footage from your county. Take four drinks if a tornado touches down in your county.

One drink
1. Take one drink every time Travis says the following:
"Hook echo" | "Updraft" | "Metro" | "Doppler radar" | "Wall cloud" | "Rain Wrapped" | "Underground" | "Mobile home" 

2. When Travis gives a list of counties, take one drink for every county in the list. 

3. Take one drink every time Travis interrupts a program. Take one drink if Travis says "You're not missing any of [program name]." Take one drink when Travis says "We'll keep you advised."

Two drinks
1. Take two drinks every time Travis says the following:
"Baseball-sized hail" | "Keystone" | "Pottawatomie County" | "Pawnee High School" 

2. Take two drinks every time Travis mentions the following towns:
Altus | Burns Flat | Pryor | Gotebo | Hydro | Lookeba | Okemah | Mulhall | Oktaha | Olustee | Shattuck | Slaughterville | Tryon | Vici | Waukomis | Wayne (or Payne) | Weleetka | Wetumkah

3. Take two drinks every time Travis talks to Von Caster.

Three drinks
1. Take three drinks if we see footage from Von Caster.

2. Take three drinks if we see footage from Pottawatomie County.

3. Take three drinks if Travis mentions the following:

"Immediate tornado precautions" | "National Weather Service" | "Mesocyclone" | "Portable Radio" | "Take shelter" | "Tornado warning in effect until …"

Four drinks
1. Take four drinks if Sky News 6 must land to refuel.

2. Take four drinks if Travis issues his own tornado warning, not recognized by the NWS or says the following:
"Will someone please answer that phone?" | "Do you see power flashes?"

3. Take four drinks if a shirt-less tornado victim is interviewed.

Finish your drink
1. Finish your drink if someone uses the word tornado as a verb or if Travis mentions the nearest cross streets to you.

2. If Travis says "We've lost Von," pour a little out for your homies and finish your drink.

Very creative. That would sell as a board game and I bet he would lend his picture for it. "Reporting baseball size hail in Broken Arrow!"

Anyone remember a little weathercaster in OKC named Gary? We never got worried until Gary pushed up his sleeves during tornado season or took off his wool sportcoat during winter storms.

My neighbor and I have sat on our front porches for years to watch and enjoy our local storms. If it gets too bad we head for the basement. And we did it without having to endure "Snow Patrol" or "Storm Riders" or "Double Doppler".

We have invested so much credibility in these guys that they now have to take their jobs seriously.

Gary England?  He's still on Channel 9, I think it is.

Gaspar, how many drinks if they interview the redneck who says:

"Well, I heard them sireens goin' off..."

And is there a bonus drink if said redneck follows that with:

"So I grabbed my ol' lady"
"So I grabbed my champeen pit bull"
"So I grabbed a 12 pack and headed for the porch"

How much if he says: "So I grabbed my ol' lady, my pit & rot, and a 12 pack an' we headed for the porch"?

We want to be responsible, so all of those would only qualify for the 4 drink limit with one exception. . .any large woman wearing a Tweety Bird shirt holding a pack of Marlboros qualifies as a "finish your beer."

When it was the Jon Slater drinking game it included phrases like "back door cold front" and "snizzle"

That was Gary Shore, RIP.  Worked at KTEW here.

Haha, I ran into him at one of Steve Kitchell's establishments (I believe it was Ocean Club) back in t the day.

He was definitely 's-faced'....

Serious question here:

I do realize we've had some really violent tornados this year, which would explain an uptick in storm deaths, but anyone else want to speculate how many of those victims were killed or seriously injured as they tried to video an approaching storm?  The reason I ask is I watched a special on Discovery, NatGeo, or one of those networks on the Alabama storm and they used a bunch of amateur video from people who stood there and watched the storm instead of seeking shelter.

The prevalence of Youtube has gotten people to take some incredibly stupid risks to film all sorts of videos then share them with the rest of the world.

Nah, it was Gary England I was referring to. He was an early soldier in helping to dramatize weather in OKC.

Has Gary Shore passed on? Met him at a party at his zenith. Very confident fellow.

Friends in meteorology tell me the Joplin weather folks had a history of false alarms.  When the wolf finally arrived the villagers didn't believe the boys.

People will want to "see the elephant" regardless of whether or not they have a camera in their hand. 
Most of the Joplin deaths I read about were people hiding in bathrooms, hallways, walk-in freezers, cars, and a few above-ground safe rooms that were ripped off their bolts and tossed.
Im sure there is a percentage of deaths among people witnessing/photographing the event, but likely a greater percentage of people died trying to do the right thing (that just wasnt enough).

And, as I've said a hundred times before, regardless of the track record of your local WFO on tornadoes (remember, they aren't an exact science, people) you do so at your own peril.  If you are stupid enough to ignore the warnings, you deserve the outcome you get.
