    Good God!! Not only will everyone that plays be completely hammered in the 2nd inning, but by the end of the game there will most likely be a friend with a black eye from the uppercut, a couple broken TVs, and someone with a broken leg from jumping off their deck (but at least they’ll have beer to numb the pain).

    I think you are trying to kill me.

    No, Bert is. “And Calltothepen with that very good one..point…one…eight.. (1.18) B…..A……C.”

    Here’s some more:

    -If Bert gets excited about a pitcher breaking a bat – drink with a toothpick in your mouth (double if he’s happy about the opposing pitcher doing it)

    -If Bert talks about how “pitching used to be…” (this includes complaining about the pitch count) – drink a beer you opened yesterday

    I just drank all my beer after seeing Bert wearing a snuggy, goofy hat, and waving a mini-bat around.

    I always love the “baseball is a roller coaster” Bert talk. Happy birthday, Bert!
