WORLD CUP UPDATE

The Brits are making a strong showing. (Mrs. Blog, reporting from Germany, confirms this.)

jolly good.

i mean...all the beer's running out? whatever shall we do?

*starts hoarding beer*

(to be honest ~ *CONTINUES hoarding beer*)

*worries she'll have to start "whoring for beer"*

I wonder what would've happened if Ireland had qualified for this cup tournament. A direct pipeline from the Guinness brewery would be my guess.

Punkin, I have a pretty large supply of good beer stashed.

All that beer consumption over there.. I better start drinking now to help balance out the worlds rotation..A call to arms my friends! Drink!

This is why I love England, and want to move there someday.

Man, that's a lot of drunk people. They are going to have one helluva hangover in the morning. But apparently, they just drown it with more beer.

I don't care what they say, nobody drinks like the Americans. I confirmed this while vacationing in Spain with some fellow soldiers. After taking our order (about thirty drinks for six people) the barman asked if there were about twenty members of our group using the bathroom. We said "No, that's just for us" and he told us he had never in his life seen a group drink that much. We didn't understand his surprise - we were just getting warmed up.

Oh, yeah - Americans rule! In your face, rest of the world! The pride is back. :p

Grant - true about Americans. Have you people never heard of Spring Break?

Now, now, people, we only dumped their tea in the harbor, not their beer. Let's just have a drinking contest. We can have a p!ssin' match after that.

I think the Australians may have us beat in that department.

When I was in Germany, the comment from the bartender was people from the US just drink (and pass out) faster. I dont know about the Brits, but my German friends have mastered the art of keeping a good buzz on for days at a time without getting wasted. The US style seems to be Drunk,pass out, hungover, drunk, pass out, hungover. I much prefer buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Mrs Blog,
Don't forget to partake in some of the local customs while on your trip.

I have a six pack in my refrigerator if England is still thirsty, but I don't think they can all fit in my apartment....

Some of them will have to wait on the lawn.

Germany without beer would be very, very bad....if they start marching look out France & Belgium (your beer will not be safe).

"Astonished bar keeper Herrmann Murr said: 'Never have I seen so many drink so much in such little time.'"

Touche', Mr. Churchill, from the Kraut!

I just hope we're all making notes. The fact that we apparently have a sure-fire way to bring Germany to its knees may well come in handy some day (and between the US and Britain - not to mention Canada - we are apparently up to the task!).

Punkin, you can have my share of the beer. I prefer wine.

Oh, Mrs. Blog (well, her article) was on the front page of the Herald today!

Yet another reason that I am happy that I was taught to drink by Brits. They ARE the experts.

Suzy Q, you know the old saying.

Wine's fine but liquor's quicker.

And, BTW, at 5:45 yesterday my eyes glazed over.

*begins fortifying doghouse to prepare for impending onslaught*
Ok, what I'm really doing is swiping some beer.

Was Lawrence Welk the first German that brought Beer to America? I vaguely remember my mother playing "Roll Out The Barrel" on the old antique Accordion.

OOOHHH, Annie. A simul!!!

*smokes a cigarette and goes to sleep*

Germany has yet to host a Jimmy Buffett concert. You haven't seen real alcohol consumption until you've been to a pre-concert tailgating party.

*swipes blurkie's beer stash*

Annie, please take the wallet but leave the beer!!!

*puts bit in mouth and hands Annie the reins*

I remember one outstanding afternoon when my sister and I were driving home from school in my dad's old Buick. We had a bunch of friends in the car who were along for the joy ride. I speeded up when we came to a large hump in the concrete in order to give everyone a big thrill. All of a sudden we heard loud explosions coming from the back in the trunk. (MY father had a case of bottled beer in the trunk and they were exploding like crazy.)
Note: Last joy ride for the season.

Echoes of Churchill ...

Old Billy the blacksmith first time in his life
Has gone home cold sober to his darling wife,
He walks in the kitchen, she says you're early me dear,
But he breaks down and tells her the pub's got no beer

Yay! I got blogged, and on such an important subject. What's impressive to me is that our British cousins/ occasional enemies are able to keep this up for so many days in a row. The US team folded 'cause their fans didn't have the stamina, or the pelvic thrusts.

Dave,
The Mrs. Dr. Doug (Dr. Deb) tells me to tell you that it should be the "English" who are making a strong showing. After all Great Brittan is of many lands.

From my observations of the game it seems that this is how they decide when the game's over. Out of beer? Game's over!!
