Got a call from a Fox News producer in New York. Grew up here, she said. Loves Philly. Just kind of wondering how the city is getting ready for the million or so people expected for Live 8. You, know, she said, Philadelphians don't have the easiest reputation.

Gimme a break. We're great hosts. We've already got a Live 8 drinking game.

It's by Daniel McQuade, 22, a Penn grad who goes by D-Mac, and works as arts & culture editor for the Evening Bulletin, a born-again broadsheet with a storied name. D-Mac has lived in Philadelphia his whole life. It shows. He calls his blog Philadelphia Will Do.

If Mayor Street says something stupid, take a sip.

If Jay-Z brings more than 10 people on stage with him? Take a sip.

If you see someone selling water for more than $4? Sip.

Now, if Will Smith says "Aw hell naw!," take a bigger sip.

Bigger sip if someone asks "What has nine arms and sucks?" and it's a joke about Def Leppard.

And if someone yells, "Free Mumia?" Gulp.

If Michael Jackson shows? Finish your drink.

Same with the Pope.

Same if you actually figure out who Keith Urban is.

There's lots more. This kid has got it. Got something, at least.

If everyone takes their trash with them when they leave, you get to finish all your drinks and buy more.

How about one shot for every band in the London show that's better than a band in the Philly show?

were these ads always here?   Do you approve of it?  I don't like ads on web pages, I get enough on the subway, on tv, on my neighbor's forehead, on their kid, etc.

It turns out I probably won't be attending Live 8, although for a few days there it seemed I may, then my parents want me in Delaware for golfing and fishing.  It's a tough one.  Drink all day in Philly or drink all day in Delaware.  Philly's looking good because of the no drive and more people, but my parents and 3 or 4 of my brothers will miss me.  #$%@#@#%!@  Looks like I'm going to Delaware :)

"If Mayor Street says something stupid, take a sip."

Christ!  Everyone in Philly will be s**t-faced based on THAT one.
