BEER OF THE GAME

You watched the video of Dom's follow slam -- and Warrior Brad's equally impressive reaction -- against the Irish from five years ago, right? If you did, you know that the only choice for tonight's Beer of the Game is the recently released Bells' Hopslam, which is a bit sweeter and "dangerously smooth" this year, according to sources.

Enjoy the game, and bring me home a winner.
