"Even if you could see it on TV - would you want to?"
SETTING THEM UP AND KNOCKING THEM DOWN, BULLY'S EAST - "It starts with the Charger Blue & Goldschlager," says Bully's East bartender Gruff McGill. "We get the blue from Curacao. Then we move on to the Pjagermeister. It's sort of a silly joke, but Jagermeister translates to 'Hunt Master.' Jagermeister with a 'P' is 'Punt-Master,' as in, what you call a team that scores as little as the Chargers. We add a touch of Peppermint Schnapps to justify the 'P.' Then it's on to the Rivers Intercept - that's just our name for a double martini. We started calling it that after Rivers' fifth game with at least two interceptions. And finally, the Bills Blackout: Everclear and Buffalo Trace Bourbon, lit on fire and downed in one shot. Goodnight, sweetheart - see you on Monday!"
