Happy America weekend, everyone! Team Cream will be getting drunk and blowing shit up like real Americans for the next few days, so posting will be light, as they say.
Speaking of getting drunk, on my way to work the other day I saw a billboard that said: "Six-Pack x 300 Horsepower. Do the math." It took me a second to realize that the answer was not "1800 Beerhorses." Now, I certainly don't think that drunk driving is cool, or in any way advisable, but I will say that if you're going to make billboards about how drunk driving is not awesome, then you shouldn't use words that are commonly associated with awesomeness. That's all.
Speaking of drunk driving, this weekend will be a series of field days for the Heat, meaning that on top of all the other reasons you shouldn't drive drunk, there's the getting-a-DUI part, which is increasingly possible when you consider all the checkpoints that will be set up to catch you. If you want to know where those will be, check out the list after the jump. (I have no idea what a "saturation patrol" is, but I'm pretty sure none of y'all want anything to do with one.)
