Beer Olympics

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

I took this last night at a “Beer Olympics” fundraiser I attended for a friend.

For one of the “events,” you needed to do this: Starting from a standing position, balance a beer on your forehead while first sitting, then laying on your back on the ground without spilling then reaching your legs over your head to grab the cup of beer, with your legs, and setting it on the ground, again without spilling, then picking the cup up without using your hands to drink the beer.

Pretty amazing. I consider myself fairly athletic but there’s no way I could do this so I didn’t even try. That, and I didn’t want to spill beer all over me.
