CNN’s infamous countdown clock has been ticking throughout the day, and even though the GOP had declared the winner of Tuesday night’s debate an hour before it started, Americans still waited in anticipation for the throw-down of the year: Mike Pence vs. Tim Kaine.
The drinking games aren’t as plentiful as they were for the first presidential debate, and the press hasn’t made any new suggestions for which strain of pot goes best with a VP face-off, but there’s still time to lay odds on how many times Kaine will break into Spanish.
Odds that Tim Kaine answers at least one question tonight in Spanish? I'm going high. #VPDebate

99% chance Kaine speaks Spanish within first ten minutes of this debate. #VPDebate

Smart money has Tim Kaine at 3 instances speaking Spanish, 4 Dad Jokes and an encore of Wagon Wheel on harmonica.

working on Tim Kaine bingo, so far I have: bluegrass harmonica, habla Español, Jesuits… and that's it OK this doesn't work

What is the over/under on Tim Kaine harmonica references tonight? #VPdebate2016

Though it’s been reported that Kaine will bring a married lesbian couple to the debate for some reason other than punishment, no one’s sure if the senator will break out one of his harmonicas that has provided joy to the press pool on many a long, long 1 a.m. bus trip across America.
I hope someone does a stop and frisk of Tim Kaine before the debate to make sure he doesn't go out there with his harmonica.

Surely he’s found hiding places by this age; that dad bod has all sorts of potential for smuggling.
I hope Tim Kaine pulls out the harmonica tonight #VPDebate

I want to see Tim Kaine play the harmonica tonight. I know he can do it. There's no excuse.

If Tim Kaine plays the harmonica on stage tonight, it's all over #VPDebate
— Dominick Ferrara (@domferrara5) October 4, 2016
If Tim Kaine doesn't pull out a harmonica during tonight's #VPDebate, I'm going to be really disappointed.

If Tim Kaine plays some bluegrass harmonica tonight I will donate $500 to the campaign. #VPDebate

For Tim Kaine, the hardest thing about the #VPDebate will be going all 90 minutes without playing his harmonica.

If the real October surprise isn’t pressed up against his lips, that is.
Tonight, I want to see Tim Kaine thwomp Mike Pence & then play a sick harmonica victory riff. Maybe with flame jets behind him. #VPDebate

I hope Tim Kaine pulls out his harmonica and plays that bluesy lil' song called "I've Been Kinda Pro-Choice for Almost Six Years." #VPDebate

most anticipated parts of #VPDebate ranked:
3) choice of walkout music
2) the harmonica duet

Tonight I get to be the middle aged woman I aspire to be & swoon over Tim Kaine. I want him to speak Spanish to me while playing harmonica.

If Tim Kaine doesn't play the Harmonica to a Lee Greenwood song tonight, then, can we truly call him America's Stepdad? #VPDebate
— Kayla Lyles (@awkwardkayla) October 4, 2016
If Tim Kaine's closing statement tonight isn't a harmonica solo idk what we're even doing here #VPDebate

Hillary’s not around; just enough time before the big event to sneak in one more round of “Wagon Wheel.”
