Guinness, RSBS and the Largest St. Patrick’s Day Party Ever

If you’re wondering who has the world record for fitting the most hard-boiled eggs in their mouth at one time, there’s only one resource: The Guinness Book of World Records.  Same thing if you want to know when and where the world’s largest omelette was cooked.  But the thing about these records is that when you look them up, you probably won’t find your name listed.  At least  until now.

This year, RSBS is partnering with Guinness and a bunch of other blogs to break the record for the biggest St. Patrick’s Day party….ever.  And we want you to be part of it.

The principle is easy.  If you’re 21 or older, just follow THIS LINK to the Guinness website, and once you’re in, click where it says “Join The Party.”  You’ll have to enter your first name, country and zip code in order to pledge to join the party and be part of the record.

But, much more importantly, in the “optional code” box, enter the code “REDS” and Guinness will send $1 to RSBS, a dollar which we’ll be donating to Baseball Tomorrow Fund participant, Noble Network Charter Schools.  That’s right, for each pledge that goes in under the RSBS name, you’ll be helping us provide baseball equipment to a bunch of kids in Chicago.

The interns search for the downside. Maybe it's at the bottom of that pint glass?

Trust me, we’ve tried to find the catch to this.  We even put the interns on the case but all to no avail.  Your pledge to join the largest St. Patrick’s Day party ever not only gets you in the book, it also helps bring baseball to kids who might not get to play otherwise.

Maybe you’ll never make it into the book as the world record holder for most cockroaches eaten in one hour but anytime someone brings it up, you’ll be able to say that you were part of world’s largest St. Patrick’s Day party.  Add in the fact that you’re helping RSBS bring baseball joy to some kids in Chicago and it’s an even more meaningful record.

P.S. Guinness and RSBS remind you drink (and break world records) responsibly.

I’m in, dude. Having some Irish blood constantly boiling through my vains, I’m always up for a party on St. Patty’s Day!!!! Great that we can help out kids, too, with baseball equipment. A great cause always.

Thanks, Mike! Spread the news to help us get this going. Much appreciated as always!

Only bad part of it all is that I will not be able to clink the glasses with either of you this great holiday. Sure I might be wearing an obnoxious green hat and possibly have beads for the lassies ( sorry lads). But knowing a great cause is being supported by my adult libation celebration…..

Seriously, wish both of you the best on this adult of all adult days/nights, and is so great kids get the rewards as we act as college students once again…even for a few hours. Pass the Corned Beef & cabbage please!

So I guess I will raise my glass now to you both:
“Here’s to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold pint– and another one!”

Thanks for your support, RR! That’s the spirit! CHEERS!
