As the 2019 Overwatch League season comes to a close, fans have a lot to celebrate. The grand finals will be a competitive match between the two best teams of the season: the Vancouver Titans and the San Francisco Shock. Next year, fans will be able to watch teams in their home cities as the league goes global. Most importantly, Bud Light still sponsors the Overwatch League, so content like this is still allowed.
Take a drink when…
- Philadelphia is name-dropped and the Wells Fargo Center crowd loses its mind.
- Anyone refers to the city as “Chilladelphia.”
- Cheesesteaks, Wawa, or the Philadelphia Eagles are mentioned.
- Take a bonus drink if someone manages to do all of those in the same sentence, because that’s impressive.
- Gritty, the very fluffy Philadelphia Flyers mascot, makes an appearance.
- Anyone does a Rocky montage parody video.
- An overly serious hype video is shown where players do the “tough guy crossed arms” pose.
- The camera pans to fans wearing Philadelphia Fusion merchandise.
- Take a bonus drink if the camera pans to fans wearing London Spitfire merchandise. (They’re just out here trying to relive their 2018 glory—leave them alone.)
- Someone makes a joke about DJ Khaled, considering his performance at the 2018 Grand Finals.
- Take a bonus drink if Questlove or Zedd make the joke about DJ Khaled.
- Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan is shown dancing to Zedd’s music.
- The crowd starts a “Jeff! Jeff! Jeff!” chant when he appears.

- Take a bonus drink if it’s a non-American talent member.
- Mitch “UberShouts” Leslie wears another shirt that looks like a Magic Eye painting.
- Analyst Brennon Hook challenges someone to yet another one vs. one duel.

San Francisco Shock

- Seo “SeoMinSoo” Min-Soo eliminates three or more players using Reaper’s Death Blossom ultimate.
