We’ve all heard the story about how Wade Boggs pounded 64 beers on a flight and how Andre the Giant drank two liters of vodka before he felt warm inside. If you drink, you have a drinking buddy. He’s the guy who’s available to hit the bar with you 99.8% of the time. He’s the guy who’ll be there to pound shots during big sporting events. He’s probably crazier than you are. He probably drinks you under the table. He probably tells better stories than you do. That’s why he’s your drinking buddy. You compliment each other. You’re responsible – to a point – and he’s not. We asked Twitter users to name their dream former athlete drinking buddies. Why just former athletes? Because they’re out of the game, seem more interesting and are grizzled veterans of the drinking game. Did we miss your guy? Add your guy in the comments.
