No joke. I have a backer that's willing to pay for 3 beers a day for the next 67 days to shut one son of a bitch down. This, my friends, is the face of pure evil:

Image

Joe is his name, though some of you may know him as Chimpotle. He's decided that he will be the first person to receive a plate at the new Flying Saucer. This wouldn't be an issue, except Joe has decided to use this plate for malice:

Quote:
Like any self-respecting Royals fan, I have no love for the Cardinals. So I came up with the idea of going after the #1 plate in the Saint Louis Flying Saucer, except instead of my name, it would be adorned with the name of Don Denkinger, the first base umpire who "blew a call" that allowed the Royals to win game 6 of the '85 World Series. The Royals went on to win game 7 and the World Series away from the Cardinals. While most Cardinal fans will deny any existence of a rivalry with the Royals, I feel this act will be viewed with great contempt, especially in a bar that looks directly at their stadium and will likely be filled with Cardinal fans on game days.


We cannot let this happen. Unfortunately for some of us, the ability to drink at one location 67 days in a row is near impossible. But, I know there is one soul out there with the fortitude and the STL pride to be able to pull this off.

I have a backer that is willing to pay for 3 beers per day for the next 67 days to make sure that a Cardinals fan gets that first plate. But, this is what is required:

  • You have to be 99.99999999999% certain you're going to be available for the next 67 days. This means you can't leave town, you can't take a vacation. You have to be here for the next 67 days in a row.
  • You have to be safe. While three beers won't wreck most of us, we don't want you doing anything stupid.
  • You have to be strong. This is going to require 100% commitment. My suggestion is that the closer you live to the Saucer, the better.

If you want to do this, you have to be willing to start TODAY. Joe will be at the Saucer at 5PM and will then be there for the next 67 days. You have to be willing to do the same.

Here's what's in it for you.

  • Free beer. 3 beers per day will all be paid for.
  • Flying Saucer UFO Club membership paid for.
  • A Cardinals Jersery
  • A few cases of Schlafly beer.
  • Pride and celebrity status knowing you saved St. Louis from a despicable man.

We're acting quick on this, so I need to know now if you're interested.

I can't wait for day 67 to see a chug off between Richard and Joe for that first plate.

this challenge isn't first come, first serve. I need to hear your commitment. I need to pick the best option. (no offense to Richard.)

Haha, I understand. Just to make my case: I live relatively close (in South City). I have no plans to go out of town until early June (which would be after the 67 days starting today). And I have a reliable transportation. :-)

I also think Joe is an awesome guy, so I would love to crush his dream.

Seriously it would be much more awesome to have a girl do this... Therefore I am stepping up to the plate.

I could totally do this. Especially because I'm not allowed to be a Brewers fan anymore and willingly bought a Cardinals jersey a few months ago. Gotta support the home team. If nobody else presents a 100% certainty, sign me up.

—Because, really, wouldn't it be awesome to see Chimpotle get his ass kicked by

A GIRL?

Man id love to be the guy but i can't make that commitment right now

Do they forbid you from more than 3 per day?

Only 3 per day count toward the 200. You can certainly drink more if you want.

The AL can screw. Home teams should be represented first and foremost. Royals should definitely not be allowed on the wall first.

OK guys—
I think it's gotta be a lady.

Evol One, I think either one of us would be a great option.

Me, I live right at 55 and Loughborough, it's an easy cruising 7 to 10 minute drive for me.

Plus Chimpotle and I go waaay back to when I first moved here. I was blasting him for harping on beers on untappd before any of you mo fos.

Whoever volunteers needs to make sure they can be there when the doors open on Saturday, May 11th, which would be day 67. Keep that in mind. Cardinals also have a home game that day at 1:15.

Already passed 900 at ITAP, live in Dogtown, and was already intending to attempt the 200 in 67 days. I'll do it. Royals Suck.
