Monday, April 16, 2007


Up front, we all know the Gold Cup can be a big party for many people. Just make sure it isn't too big. If you plan to drink, make sure you have a designated driver. It something we take very seriously, so be smart and work it out before you get here.

Not sure how to go about it? Try this top ten list...

10) See if Lindsay Lohan’s driver is available. Lord knows, he knows how to navigate around trouble.
9) Invite a pregnant woman. Buy her a ticket. Buy her husband and some of their friends tickets. Grovel if necessary.
8) Play rock, paper, driver the night before. Cheat if you must.
7) When was the last time your parents dropped you off and picked you up?
6) Tony Stewart has threatened to retire from NASCAR, maybe you can catch a ride with him.
5) Hitch hike with the guy with the Bud Light and the chainsaw…No, even the guy with the Bud Light and the axe thought that was a bad idea.
4) We don’t ride the bus, you don’t ride the bus, but everybody loves a party bus.
3) Maybe your fifth cousin, the nun, doesn’t have plans on Saturday?
2) Hire somebody -- that ALWAYS works.
1) Volunteer. Step up to the plate, it’s probably your turn.
