I had the realization yesterday that all skills, no matter how seemingly irrelevant to the world arround us, should be appreciated. That is why today we pay homage to a talented group participating in an oft overlooked activity, one that tends to go hand in hand with drunken revelry. But I beg of you, reconsider.
The artisty, the athletic prowess.... Okay, so it's not exactly a sport, but it's damn entertaining.
Even if it revolves entirely around drinking it's not without merit. As Papa Hemingway said, "An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools."
