Beer is good. Especially when you sneak it into places you're not supposed to. Most alcohol is that way. I was at a Guster concert not long ago at Lehigh University and four drunk sorority girls were sitting behind us lamenting the fact that they had no booze when one of them said, "We really need to figure out a way to smuggle alcohol into concerts in our vaginas."

I thought about offering a few suggestions, but I didn't. (Have you seen those miniature bottles of Goldschlager they sell behind the liquor store registers, ladies?) It's probably a good thing they didn't sneak liquor into the concert (vaginally or otherwise), because halfway through the band's set, one of them puked all over the floor.

Anyhow, back to smuggled beer. A co-worker friend forwarded me a link to an ingenius little invention called the "Beer Belly." It's a pouch (with a capacity of 80-ounces) worn around the mid-section and connected to a drinking tube. That's it being used almost imperceptibly above. True, it's basically a Camelbak worn backwards, but it's still pretty cool...if you don't mind drinking warm, flat beer. But I guess that's better than no beer at all. While you're on the website, don't forget to check out the "Wine Rack." The aforementioned sorority sisters could have use one.

I have one!!!!

It was a "prize" for those people who finished 4th to 10th in the '06 Pittsburgh Wing Champion Series.

But, I've actually yet to use it.

Awesome. You can use it at this year's Wing Bowl. Remember...you said you'd meet me in Harrisburg the day before and we'd head head to Philly. You do remember saying that, don't you?

We actually considered buying these for the last wingbowl and then came upon better means to get 4 cases in the door.

Still got busted though, but only because of a 'Rookie' who made a bad move once we were past security.

4 cases? How did you pull that one off?

Carey.... beer in the beer!

It's a classic sneakery. You haven't heard this one yet?
And all thought up by S'Bellie's son.

A chip off the ol' block!
