Beer-mug-holding contests: Not just for Germans anymore

:cheers:


Nope, couldn't do it. I read the article, and the rules say you have to hold 1liter of beer at arms length......... without bending your elbow, (read that as you cannot take a drink) from the glass. Last one to "not drink" and still be holding the glass wins !!!!

I would bend my elbow and drink from the glass..... :dancing:  :dancing:  :dancing:  :dancing:  :dancing:

That's not a contest, that's just a bunch of guys I asked to hold my beers when I went to the bathroom.  So they wouldn't drink them I told them to keep it at arms length.  Stupid media gets everything wrong. :mad:  :biggrin:

Sounds like a good event to add a little excitement to the local bar.  Probably a better contest than seeing who can drink the most, although not as fun.

I was never much into bar games, except maybe quizzo, and I've never liked drinking games.  But I think people should be able to do what they want for their fun.  So nothing is wrong with just drinking and enjoying a cigar, and nothing is wrong with playing a bar game.  Can't we just all get along? :biggrin:

I agree... just drink the beer.

I've never been one for drinking games either. Hell, I never played beer pong up until last year when I was 32. I've still never played quarters. The only drinking game I can recall playing when I was more youthful was a card game called 3 man (I think). The night before my wedding my wedding party and a few extra friends tried to join the Century Club, but after 20 shots of beer in 20 minutes we decided it was taking to long to get a buzz going and ended the game and just started drinking.

Sounds more like a strong man compitition than a drinking one.  I'd have to take a drink after looking at a liter of beer in my hands too!

If you like to just sit back, smoke, drink and watch TV, then we had a drinking game back in college just for you!  It was called "Hi, Bob!".  Simple rules: While watching episodes of the original "Bob Newhart Show", whenever anybody on the show says "Hi, Bob!", everybody calls out "HI BOB!" and takes a very generous drink of their beer. People on the show say "Hi, Bob" so often, that even the guys who can hold their alcohol the best would get at least a good buzz.

Stupid game, but no effort was needed.  :biggrin:
