Philly/Pittsburgh beer wager in the news

Bob Batz, beer scribe at the Post-Gazette in Pittsburgh, has caught wind of our little wager with Pittsburgh-based Craft Beer Radio. Barring an historic comeback*, I will be turning in a bevy of beer goodies from the Philly area to Jeff at CBR. Maybe Bob can join us if we have a meetup when this series concludes. * The 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and 1975 New York Islanders are the only NHL clubs to overcome a deficit of three games to none in a playoff series. Those teams did it 33 years apart. And this year is 33 years from 1975. (source: Tim Panaccio's column in Philadelphia Inquirer, 5/15/08)

Congratulations to this publicity and thank you for the details about this 33-years-series. Hopeful Dallas will continue this tradition ;-)
