BEER MILE WORLD CLASSIC
The last thing I want to do after a beer is run. Unless I’m running to take a piss before my lady get’s in the bathroom. The hundreds of steel stomached individuals who ran and drank in the S.F. Beer Mile World Classic are definitely not an ordinary bunch. You are probably wondering why they would ruin their buzz by running around like a bunch of fitness freaks. The answer is simple – they are drunkards who needed a community. You have to love some of the quotes from this amazing display of physical prowess. Here are some of the best quotes via SFgate :
“Making sure just to burp and not to puke is very difficult,” – from a drunk guy named Alex
“I have a headache,” – from drunk 26 year old web developer Jeremy Eaton
“The event is about being ridiculous and I wanted to embrace the spirit of this,” – said a guy nicknamed ‘Bushbaby’ who threw up along the way.
Bushbaby who’s real name is Seth Buchsbaum upped the ante by running in a a winter-themed penguin onesie. This is the sport of true champions. These guys should have been drinking Wheaties Beer of Champions. Perfect product placement opportunity missed. The race was won by a Canadian named Lewis Kent, who came in at 5:09. He was quoted as saying “I feel on top of the world,” which is how I feel every Saturday night after a couple of brewskis, without the sweat and pounding heartbeat. Check out some videos and a couple of pictures from the event below:
