This story is original and based on a true story that happened in Milwaukee in the Fall of 1986 on a Rugby weekend... It was a typical Wisconsin Fall weekend, clear and cold. It was also a typical post-match Rugby party, celebrating and drinking regardless of whether they won or lost. Likewise it was a typical crowd, a mixture of college students, rugby players, regulars and a few obnoxious drunks from off the street. At one point during the festivities, one of these obnoxious drunks, comes up to one of the rugby players, let's call him Ted, and begins to harass him. "Hey, buddy," the drunk begins, slurred, "lend be a couple of bucks for a picher of beer, will you pal?" He wobbled back and forth as he tried to concentrate on keeping his eyes focused on his prey, while attempting to look extremely pathetic at the same time. At first Ted tried ignoring him, hoping he'll go away. But no such luck today. "Hey, buddy, I asked you if I could borrow a few dollars to buy a pitcher of beer!" "Yea, right," said Ted under his breath, as he made a move to the other side of the room in the hope of getting rid of him. But the drunk followed him. "Hey, buddy, 'cmon, lend me some money for some beer." Ted then decided to fix this guy. "Yeah, sure I will. Stay right here, and I'll buy you a pitcher." He then grabbed a pitcher off the bar as made for the men's room. Now, rugby players, as you may be aware, are known for thier beer drinking abilities. With that comes the ability to manage the diuretic effect that it has afterward. It was this ability that allowed Ted to completely fill the pitcher. "Here you go, fella," said Ted, returning with his pitcher, with quite a head on it. "Drink up." "Thanks you very much, sir," said the drunk, looking as grateful as possible. Ted stepped away to get a better look at the drunk's reaction, as the "beer" was poured. The man then took a big draught from his glass, and a pained look appeared on his face. "Hey!" he screamed, "This beer is warm!"
