"gameday contraband" ...Day 18

It is shaping up to be a "bourbon" kind of weekend.  :)  Yesterday, a Mint Julep... today, a Bourbon & Coke.

College football and the South are a match made in heaven.  We are raised on it and it's how we spend our weekends in the fall.  And for many of us that went to college in the south, our drink during the game was a bourbon & Coke.  Not legally of course, we sneaked in flasks or bottles of bourbon to spike our concession stand cokes.  And usually the girls did the smuggling.  Back in the day,  I would use an Ace bandage to secure a bottle to each to each of my legs.  Wearing a dress and heels, no one was the wiser.  The smell of bourbon to this day makes me think of football.
