At Rhino, NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes whip Georgetown students in flip cup
At least, he probably can’t flip at the professional level. Several members of the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes proved that on Saturday night when, coming off a 4-2 loss to the Capitals, they were challenged to several games of flip cup by some Georgetown undergraduates at Rhino Bar and Pumphouse, whom they appeared to have trounced 3-0.
NBC Washington‘s Kate Michael said it went like this:
“We don’t do beer on tap,” quipped one of the toothless titans, “so it’ll have to be Miller Lite bottles.” ….
“This is probably the coolest game I’ve ever seen put together in this place,” Rhino manager Dave Nelson said as the first round began.
Despite their routine and intense studies in the field of flip cup, the students were stunned by the icemen’s skills at the toss. And the Coyotes got a rare off-the-ice chance at a hat trick as the students begged to bet on the “best of three.”
So much for the skills to match our popped-collar image.
D.C. Sports Blog‘s Dan Steinberg adds insult to injury by reminding his readers that several years ago, many judged Georgetown to be inferior at flip cup to nearby George Washington University, although they based their conclusions on only meager scientific evidence.
