One of my favorite artists, George Thorogood once said “… when I drink alone, I prefer to be by myself.” I’m not sure what he was thinking when he wrote that song because most of us prefer to not drink alone. Parties, drinking games, and fun evenings with friends are all examples of people getting together to share some stories and raise a glass. Much better than drinking alone!
Skiing and other outdoor sports can be lots of fun, but often the best part is meeting after the event to have a few drinks and brag about the day’s adventures (even if the stories grow larger with every glass). I think Ralph Waldo Emerson had it right when he said something like, “It’s one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to get silly with them.” Nothing wrong with that once in a while.
It’s no wonder that the fun-loving ski crowd is often associated with the invention of The Shot Ski. (Not sure what a Shot Ski is? Click here). But of course, shot skis are more about friends, good times and drinking than they are about skiing. And (with the respectful exemption of George Thorogood) most people love Shot Ski’s because they are all about taking a drink together and sharing good times with buddies.
Shot Skis are appearing in pubs, at house parties, at tailgate parties, on beaches and really anywhere fun people get together to talk, laugh and have a good time. Most of these people are not skiers – just good friends. Friends are the people that make life fun, help you when you need it, and don’t hesitate to share a glass of your favorite beverage with you. Taking a shot from a Shot Ski brings you plus three of your favorite people together for a fun-times moment.
Who do you pick to share your first Shot Ski experience with? Pick your very best friends. I’ll leave you with a quote that will help you decide who they are from Groucho Marx, “When you're in jail, a good friend will be trying to bail you out. A best friend will be in the cell next to you saying, 'Damn, that was fun'.”
Drink responsibly, take care of each other, and …do try to stay out of jail ;)
