    I knew I was doing it right!
     
  2. Beer is great, not only does it taste good, but it is also good for you.

    You really can't go wrong!! :D
     
  3. Oh so now i can offset the 4 pints after an hour in the gym then!
     
  4. I worked with a guy who played for Man City in the days when players got the local bus to the gound, and an oppo of his told me that a couple of pints before the match was not uncommon.
     
  5. Is it OK to have a quick sniffter at half time aswell.
     
  6. I used to go circuit training at the local sports centre, afterwards we would go to the bar where the other lads would order soft drinks like squash or a 'henry'. I always went for 2 pints of Guinness and left the establishment in a far better mood than the others. It must be true
     
  7. Damn... didn't read the whole article before covering myself in beer :oops:
     
  8. I remember playing for the local pub team years ago, its a good job that it is now official that beer after a match is good for you cos we used to get sloshed as soon as the final whistle blew.
     
  9. I still do after every Sqn, Unit, Corps, Army etc game.

    Avoid the hangover, stay pissed :D :D
     
  10. I am opening my first bottle of wife beater of the evening, safe in the knowledge that after my arduous 1 minute walk home from work, beer is officially good for me!

    So cheers fellow arrse folk! Bottoms up and all that!
    :whew:
     
  11. Is the sport bit beforehand absolutely necessary? I mean, are you allowed to cut that bit out or would that defeat the object?
     
  12. Not at all, it could be called Sportwex - Sport Without Exercise :D
     
  13. I concur with my learned friend however i have found that necking 8 pints of
    Guinness prior to CFT is not a very good idea :oops:
     
  14. True,it can add up to thirty seconds to your time, but paradoxically has not effect whatsoever on BFT (PFT) timings, all sub 10:00
