Is anyone else out there seeing this as a challenge? I mean really! I think my friends and I do a fair share of boozing. How the fuck is Boston the least drunk city in the country?? HOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!! I challenge you all to go out this Superbowl weekend and drink at least 4 more beers than you normally would. If you have friends who are sober and non drinkers spike their drinks with vodka.
