When Push comes to... BEER!

When you play blackjack, with each hand one of three possibilities can occur: One, dealer wins. That is, you've either went bust or dealer has a hand closer to 21 than yours. Two, you win; Meaning, the dealer went bust or your hand is closer to 21. The last is what's called a PUSH. This happens when both the dealer and the player tie. If you're a blackjack player, it means you didn't lose. ;) Here's another example of a push...

but see... in this case both Shane and I win. I don't think either of us mind paying back a beer... so, really, this is just another reason to drink.

The only way this push could be any sweeter would be if our respective wives would be the ones getting the beer for us, while we watch Oklahoma pounce Missouri this Saturday.
