Watching the 2012 Summer Olympics for 16 days in a row will most likely end up becoming a little dry. That's why we want to show you a way to moisten up the Olympic experience and quench the need for a little extra fun.

With so many countries, sports, athletes and rules to try and keep track of, watching the Olympics can be a bit stressful. And watching all of these young, over-excelling, in-shape superstars might make you feel like an underachiever. But don't worry, we're here to ease the pain and make you feel like a gold medal winner in the comfort of your own home with the 2012 Summer Olympics Drinking Game! Cheers!

First off, we'll be using three tiers of categories:

Bronze = 1 drink
Silver = 2 drinks
Gold = Chug your beverage

Opening Ceremony:

Bronze: Any reference to the 2008 Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Silver: Any time you hear about country that you've never heard of, or don’t know what
continent it’s on or can’t pronounce.

Gold: Spot the Queen.

Swimming:

Bronze: Any mention of the rivalry between Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.

Silver: Any mention of Phelps's diet.

Gold: Spot Debbie Phelps (bonus points if she is eating a Subway sandwich).

Gymnastics:

Bronze: Spot any athlete (mostly Asian) who looks like they haven’t hit puberty yet.

Silver: Any time an announcer jinxes an athlete by saying, "They have been perfect so far" or "They need to land this" or "This is his/her best event." You get the picture.

Gold: Any mention or showing of Kerri Strug's 1996 gold medal vault.

Track:

Bronze: Any mention of performance-enhancing drugs.

Silver: Any false start by a racer.

Gold: Spot Usain Bolt’s trademark victory pose.

Bonus Round:

Bronze: Any time you see a picture of the London skyline that includes Big Ben, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace where you see one of those guards dressed in a red uniform with the fuzzy black hat.

Silver: If at any time you find yourself watching one of these random sports -- handball, trampoline, canoe slalom, race walk (looks like a fast mall walker) or judo -- and actually enjoying it.

Gold: If at any time you hear the following phrases or words: "family sacrifice to get to this point," “This is what the Olympics are all about," “He/she has prepared their whole life for this one moment," "world record," "determination," "fierce competitor."

If the U.S. Wins a Medal, Do a Shot of...:

Bronze: Cheap whiskey. Punish yourself!

Silver: Silver Patron

Gold: Goldschlager, then chant "U.S.A.! U.S.A.!"

Best of luck, and go for the gold! Feel free to borrow Usain Bolt's trademark victory pose if you so choose.
