VIDEO: Bob Hawke Skulls Beer At SGC Test Against India, 2012
Bob Hawke proves there's life in the old dog yet.
It's great to see that in Bob Hawke's case, there's life in the old dog yet.
We found this awesome clip on Youtube. Watch as a gracious punter at the SCG happily shouts a full beer to ex Prime Minister Bob Hawke, and watched gleefully as Hawkie downs it in one big gulp.
You just have to put this in context... here's a bloke who's 82 years young this year. Obviously Hawkie loves a good chant, and can't resist the lure of peer pressure.
Mind you, Hawkie's obviously got the runs on the board when it comes to stuff like this... after all, he once famously downed 2.5 pints of beer in 11 seconds at University College, Oxford. That's 1.18 litres in the new language.
Of course, we can't condone what's happened here. Not only for the obvious health risks, but also for the fact that with the price they slug you at the cricket for a plastic cup of beer, it makes so much more sense to make it last.
In any case, Bob Hawke, we salute you.
