If this ever becomes an Olympic event, the 5000-meter and 10,000-meter could well become fatal.

Is there one where you can also stop for a smoke every lap? If so, I'm in.

I saw Miller or someone has a new can that opens an airhole to speed up chugging. Technology and sport, hand in hand.

Hmmm. Let me know when they have the Ex-Lax-Mile run, THEN we'll talk about physically elite...

Loudmouth, like back in the days when you used a church key to punch two holes in a flat top beer can? Technology marches backward.

What time does the #5 Geezer Bus stop here?

Who says you never learn anything important from reading this blog ?

If this does become an Olympic event, the Irish will dominate. Can you name one export from Ireland that isn't alcoholic ? (Please don't mention James Joyce. You have to be real drunk to read Ulyssussusss....I'm Irish by the way....)

Layzee, I have told my kids(possibly more than once) about footage in the lockeroom of an NBA game at halftime in the early to mid 70's. It was the Lakers and more than one of the players was having a smoke while the coach motivated them for the second half. Then there's Babe Ruth, who got kicked benched for the second game of a doubleheader for having too many beers with fans in between games.

"If this does become an Olympic event, the Irish will dominate."
Nah. After the 2nd beer they would pick a fight with the guy in the next lane.

A Canuck holds the record at 5:09.

i'm thinking that if this becomes an olympic event, this blog group would win gold

I can't remember. Is a beer mile longer than a nautical mile, or shorter?
