Huell Howser Drinking Game

Tennessee-accented California booster Huell Howser's various shows (like California's Gold) are definitely my favorite things on PBS, and Huell overall is one of my favorite hosts on TV. For those of you not blessed enough to live here in California, what Huell does is take road trips with his one-man camera crew to historic sites, small towns, and natural wonders around the state, interview people, and make it all sound fascinating, all in the most down-to-earth no-frills style possible. In short, Huell lives my ideal life.

So here, courtesy of Defamer, is the Huell Howser Drinking Game:
Every time Huell says “wwwwwooooowwwwww…” drink. Not just a “wow” but “wwwwwwwwooooowwww.” You’ll know it when you hear it.
Every time Huell says something obvious, drink. Example: “So the people of the town would bring their mail right here to this post office?”
Every time Huell addresses his cameraman, drink. Example: “Hey, look at this [Luis/Troy/Cameron].”
Every time Huell says, “That’s amazing!”…drink.
Every time Huell uses the words ‘historic’ and ‘history’…drink.
Every time Huell shakes a persons hand and doesn’t let go for an uncomfortable amount of time…you guessed it! Drink!
Lastly, when Huell interviews someone and they give him that look that says, “Is this guy serious???”…drink.
I'd add:
When somebody walks or drives by, recognizes Huell, and says they love him, drink.
When Huell says hello to someone who looks like an ex-con and they're cheery and happy to talk to him, drink.
If Huell structures the episode like a quest, and they find what they were looking for, drink.
