To PBR or Not to PBR?

Post  BikeBeth on Fri Nov 09, 2007 12:46 pm

Plunkett admittedly threw up what he threw down. Should he receive credit for the PBRs that ended up on the course? If so, he retains his PBR crown (with 24). If not, he's tied with Robi (with 21) and only two in front of Ryan and Kuklis (19 each).

Not that we're going listen to what anyone says--no way in hell would we allow such a vital decision to be made in a democratic manner--but it could lead to some interesting debate...

Now I know what floyd feels like. My life is going down the drain all because of a few missed placed beers

Chumming the course is a +1 lap penalty, but he keeps the beers ...heck, if you get a bonus for chugging them, you should get a penalty for spewing them!

Well, I think if he went back in the daylight, to recover the beer he left behind, he should be able to get credit for them.

You've got a long way to go to show up ahead of this guy on Google...

"William Plunkett was a highwayman and accomplice of the famed 'Gentleman Highwayman,' James MacLaine. Plunkett lived during the mid-eighteenth century in London, on Jermyn Street, and was said to have been an apothecary who was also presumed to be a gentleman. With stolen pistols and horses, and their faces hidden by Venetian masks, Plunkett and MacLaine had a short but highly successful career as outlaws. While MacLaine was eventually hanged for his exploits, Plunkett escaped with both his illicit gains and his life."

Do not escape with illicit gains from the PBR tent, or I will no longer presume you to be a gentleman!

PBR now JD for Plunkett

Post  Ryan P. on Fri Nov 09, 2007 5:20 pm

Shameful. No
Wait 'till dad gets home and hears what you did.....
He should be removed from the PBR competition immediately! Or at least make him a full blown "Floyd" and have him do shots of JD instead for the remaining races. That might be punishment enough to satisfy the masses.

The "fab five" is now the four...We could recruit another: Ray, by the looks of those DNFs, you look like you could use a PBR or two or three. Maybe help you mix in a smile while racin' your bike in someones backyard Very Happy

Vote "No" on Plunket

Post  KUKLIS on Fri Nov 09, 2007 6:05 pm

Keith, you of all people should be familiar with the rules of the IFOCE. They are harsh but fair. Any "reversals of fortune" ANY TIME during an event result in a score of 0.

Any hack can slam 3 beers, throw them up, then slam 3 more. It takes a true competitor to fight back the heaves, stomach convulsions, and inebriation all while navigating roots and ruts with a 180 bpm HR.

Please see http://www.ifoce.com/home.php with any questions.

I don't know if I could show my face the next week after such a showing.

Yeah, pile on Plunkett! In our other local competitive eating event, the Donut Derby, the rules state: "There are only 2 rules: All donuts must be eaten in the Donut Zone and if you chum a field, you're DNF'd." Evil or Very Mad

Woo-hoo, look what we've got here. Our very first 2-page "discussion" on Race Commentary. How did I know this topic would generate much debate?

Not that any of it means jack on the final decision.

I reflected all weekend over your comments. I feel ashamed. Ive decided to step down as beer champ. This said, I will not stop drinking. I can't.... as I look at that beautiful red, white, and blue can I think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I dont keep drinking, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I keep drinking and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver and a PBR championship.

Just Calm Down...

Post  Ryan P. on Mon Nov 12, 2007 9:36 pm

Plunkett:
Be like Floyd and proclaim your innocence until, well, forever (even though we all know he/you did it).
The ruling will soon come from the Godfather and he may come to you and ask you to perform a task at a later date...
Until then, mix it up in the PBR race. Sanctions such as these take months of arbitration until a verdict is handed down. Until then, DRINK YOUR ASS OFF!!!
We don't want to win like this. A "stained" PBR jersey is nothing to be proud of. That * would always be there.
See you soon.

Keith's PBR's

Post  KUKLIS on Tue Nov 13, 2007 8:57 pm

I'm not calling for a total PBR correction, just the 5 Keith "drank" the night in question.

We have to have accountability here people. If not, I'm showing up with a funnel, and bonging beers with reckless abandon.
