BEER OF THE GAME

So, that DOCUMENT YOUR HONOR CODE VIOLATIONS was a step in the wrong direction, no? Let's bring things back to center, and I'll tell you what to drink: I had my first (and second and third) Franziskaner(s) in forever yesterday, and they were every bit as good as I remember. It's a balmy 37 degrees as I write this, and spring is in the air, so enjoy a hefeweissen tonight.

Enjoy the game, and bring me home a winner.
