    I can honestly say that there is no possible way I could take one of those pirate shots. Out of 1800 riders, how many do?

    Over 400 last year until we ran out of cups.
    We will have over 1000 this year. Yar!

    If I would have gotten in, I'd take a shot. Might have even doubled back for another one.
    Remember, nobody knows. So let's find out...

    Yes, I did. I'll do a shot on the trails around home to honor the pirates and placate the fat tire gods for next year.

    I passed on the rum, and will continue to do so after watching the guy next to me spit/vomit it up all over his handlebars/top tube.

    The puker was wearing a go pro on his helmet, hopefully he can relive that moment over and over.

    I always laugh coming up pirate hill because you can start to smell the booze, but I didn't hear the cannon this year?

    I passed, mainly so there'd be more for the rest of you, and it was kind of hard on my stomach last year!

    "Ride yer bike, like ya ride yer WENCH!"

    That was pretty funny when I heard that!

    Thanks for the shot! Figured it was only natural as I was riding a Singlespeed!

    Thanks to all ye riders again this yar! The Pirates had a blast. Despite the malfunctioning cannon, we were able to dispense about 750 shots on Pirate hill and another 10 liters after the race. See ye next year!

    Puking because of the shot? There were women riders that had two shots, no puking. Now the guy that poured it over his head well...

    For next year either cups or gang plank choice is on the racer...It was fun though, it's been a week I still have the hangover. No, not from the rum but from the fat tire 40 race.
