Tom Brady sure can chug a beer!

Last week, the folks at Monster Energy Canada dropped off a few samples of their beverages at our studio. I was lucky enough to be able to choose one, and I decided to give their “Gronk” flavour a try. While I was excited to drink it at some point when I wasn’t so hopped up on coffee (how you’ll usually find me around the office), I was also excited to take a jab at the only football team I ever really want to see lose…

I don’t know why, but I always enjoy seeing Patriots quarterback (and Gronk’s teammate) Tom Brady lose. Don’t get me wrong – I have a lot of respect for the guy. He definitely knows how to throw a deflated ball. But given that he’s a pro-athlete and all, my guess is that we’re more likely to see him drinking from a can that has his teammate’s face on it than we are to see him drinking a beer.

Sure, he knows his way around a shotgun formation…

… but can he shotgun a beer?

Boy, they sure picked the perfect frat bro to give that demonstration, didn’t they?

It’s an acquired skill that takes lots of practice to perfect. I would know – I’m somewhat of a shotgunning connoisseur. I don’t know if I’ve ever been out-shotgunned – If so, it was on my first couple tries at it. I’ve just always had a gift for chugging liquids, and not everyone can say that. I have a pretty fond memory of my 20th birthday party, when a friend I hadn’t seen in quite some time showed up to say hello. I asked him if he wanted to shotgun a beer with me, and commented on one of his facebook videos in which he taught his younger sister how to do it. He started making fun of her for the fact that she didn’t know she had to open the beer. When I returned from the house with a couple cans of beer and prepped them to be shotgunned, I handed him one and went to town on mine. Even though he had just torn his little sister to shreds over forgetting to pop the can open, he did literally that very thing. My dad came over and popped it for him, and he ended up wearing most of his beer. We teased him relentlessly about how he “forgot” to pop it after that.

But I digress…

If you’re wondering if Tom Brady can chug a beer, the answer is YES – as proven on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

He says that he used to be a pretty good beer chugger, and then proves that he still has the touch… Now I’ve seen people refer to Tom Brady the quarterback as the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time), but before you start calling him the GOAT of beer chugging, former Patriots lineman Rich Ohrnberger has something to say…

Something tells me Brady is less willing to chug these days. I just can’t help but wonder how bad he threw off his diet with that one beer.
