    There was also a maximum of 25 shos attempts...

    Since you play more games while you drink, the first day was an ALL SOBER DAY to see if the players just got naturally better with more practice.

    Fun Fact: Chelsea throws underhand. We don't know why. We also still don't know if it works.
