My only Best Man's speech, I reckon I drank near on three bottles of wine before taking to the stage. Felt as sober as a Judge and the speech was great. I was drunk as a monkey as soon as returned to my table and drank coffee for the next hour or two!
Potential reward (and enjoyment) seem to be directly proportional to the preceding doubt and nerves

Getting caned before KO is probably a bad idea, but a few 'liveners' might not do any harm 🥃
There was a time when Jackie Milburn would have a few bottles of Brown Ale in the Strawberry pub opposite St James Park, before taking to the field
