any Georgia BullDogs who think UGA can take Air Force in college hoops?

Since the USAF Academy's in CO, I am offering a 6-pack of Coors Light (TAP:NYSE). I want a 6-pack of stale Billy (Carter) Beer if I win. I hear they're collectors' items these days.

Just did a quick scan of the Billy Beer market, the best comment was by the guy on Geocities who said... Of all the e-mails I got from people asking how much their Billy Beer was worth, not a single one of them offered to buy my can!

Perhaps there is a nostalgia for the days when it was an embarassment to be a beer drinkin, pickup truck drivin' nascar lovin redneck goofball!

Don't even talk about Bush's brothers, one was disappeared altogether, one was guilty of looting Silverado S&L and the SBA (to be fair, he was the go getter son of the Veep. His Ne'er do well brother was busy selling influence and getting a sweetheart deal part ownership of the Texas Rangers in payment). The other other brother was busy botching the job of securing the election in Florida by circumventing a whole host of election laws.

But we still make fun of Billy!

Now you leave Billy alone!

He was the ONLY Carter that actually knew what it was that he wanted to do!

He was a man before his time!

In 2000, he'd have been elected and he'd be embarassed by his brother winning the Nobel Peace Prize!

I had a 6 pack of Billy Beer once. Tried one can, the other 5 followed me around the country for 2 or 3 moves. I think I ended up finally pitching them. That was before EBAY arrived on the scene, however. That Billy Beer was really nasty stuff (worse than Coors Light).

The missing Bush brother runs a "hedge fund" called Winston Partners. I don't think they trade or anything. It's just a front so he can say he does something for a living rather than spending his trust fund dough. His name is Marvin and he's sort of the black sheep of the family. None of the other brothers ever talk about him.
