I used to drink beer back in the 70s 80s 90s early 2000s - my favorite ended up being Shiner Blonde buy the absolutely best I ever had was at a Budweiser Keg party my sister had way out in the Alabama country - it too kick my ass big time but the taste was something I'll never forget

He drinks Budweiser, which is the strongest beer in the world.

Riiiight.

"Back in 1992, the United States of America assembled arguably their greatest teams back in 1992 for the Barcelona Olympic Games"

Maybe the author has been doing some drinking, too.

I've always wondered if there's an underachiever somewhere named Barry Lurd who's life has sort of felt like a cruel joke.

Or you could drink with someone without drinking the same amount as that person.

See Byrd around town fairly often. If it weren't for his height you wouldn't notice him because he isn't trying to be famous. Indiana prefers it's celebrities that way. Athletes even more so. If you can't say 'Aw shucks!' convincingly, fark right off.

/Eric Dickerson was the preeminent example of how not to sportball in Indiana

If you grew up in the Boston area in the 80's, you did.  You did everything like Larry Bird.  Because he did everything.  I never met him, but according to every single f*cking dad who coached a recreational league and believed himself to be Bill Fitch or KC Jones would let you know.

When you miss a foul shot, you practice after the game by taking 1000 shots.  Then you have to sweep the floor, shut off the lights and lock the gym because the janitor went home, because that's what Larry Bird would do.

And Larry Bird didn't just play basketball.  He was, I guess, amazing at homework.  Because if you got a 98% on a test you had to be like Larry Bird and study for 1000 hours until you got straight A's.

Shoes untied?  Tie them 1000 times, just like Larry Bird.
Empty milk container in the fridge?  Go buy 1000 gallons.  Like Larry Bird would.  Every night.  Every day.  Every dad-coach in the Boston area.

So of course he can drink beer.  He drank 1000 beers every night so he could be the best in the world at it.  Just ask everyone's dads.

/and Charles never touched a ball in the off-season.  That's why kids from Philly throw batteries at Santa.
