On Wednesday, December 14, get ready for the next Beer Challenge “Celebrity Keg Match”. This is where I grab two mates who are also gracious rivals on the court, throw them into the squash arena to test just how good their friendship is as they battle it out to see who will be left with paying for the keg.

Just for kicks and giggles, I will also organize a game for anyone interested in playing too. I will split everyone up into 2 teams and attempt to give you an opponent of equal strength as you play a best of 5, no-holds-barred, all-out, no-mercy, match. At the end of the day, which team wins is utterly insignificant as you are not held responsible for paying for the beer, just responsible for drinking it. Last year we had 32 registrations, so let’s see if we can top it.

Once all the “inconsequential” bouts have finished, and you have all (re)filled your mugs, it is time to pull up a chair, or piece of carpet, relax, and get excited for the main attraction…

Let’s get ready to rummmmblllllle…!

In the right corner, weighing in at an even 200 pounds and a wing span that would rival a 747, hailing from the remote jungle areas of St. Clair Shores, coming in with a 2011 record of 19 wins, 17 losses, and 5 hang-overs, the “menace-that-played-tennis”, he’s “jolly-when-he-volleys”,… BRIEN – “why-isn’t-my-name-spelt-with-an-a” – BAKER!


In the left corner, weighing in at a bulky 185 pounds and a t-shirt 2 sizes too small, residing in the dangerous dank corners of Grosse Pointe Woods, boasting an impressive 2011 record of 36 wins, 15 losses, and not one single ‘let’ call, the “racquetballer mauler”, the “hustle with the muscle”,… MATT – “watch-me-do-court-sprints” – JARBOE!

Action a plenty is guaranteed when Brien and Matt start whacking away. Matt has won their past 5 meetings and appears to have that mental edge. But with a keg on the line, things are sure to be more intense than usual.

Registration deadline is Monday, December 12 if you would like to play. If not, come on down anyway and watch the carnage… I mean bloodshed… I mean massacre… ummm beer and squash.
