My man Brooks sent along this story with the following qualifier: "Duk'll love this."
He knows me too well.
Down in St. Louis, reliever Jason Isringhausen has purchased a motorized cooler so that the 'pen's drinks can be transported between the dugout and outfield in a more efficient manner.
“My job as the rookie is to carry the drinks out in the cooler, so [Isringhausen] said I got to make sure I’m out there in style,” says rookie reliever Kyle McClellan, who has been driving the cooler out to the bullpen before every home game.
You can find Chris Lee's great photo essay of the Moto-Cooler doing its job at Busch Stadium here.
After that, buy a Cruzin' Cooler of your own (wonder if I can get one by the Fourth?) here.
Finally, read about a man who's actually facing DWI charges for piloting one of these around here.
