Comment: I realize that this cannot be true, but legend has it Wade Boggs
of Red Sox Fame, once drank 64 beers on a cross country flight. Where did
this start?

Well, if it was the beginning of a road trip it probably started at Logan.

Let's see ... it's been a while, but I think a non-stop cross-country flight takes about four hours. That works out to one beer every 3.75 minutes without stopping. Now, I've known some pretty prolific drinkers in my time (met many during my training for the Olympic drinking team), but I don't think I know anyone who could keep that pace up for that long.

I would imagine it started somewhere in this vicinity.

sounds similar to David Boon's 52 can record !

For those not in the know, David Boon was an Australian cricketer who achieved this on the flight from Sydney to London.

Now, perhaps their ability to hold liquor is legendary, but I'd think one would pass out after, oh, say 36 beers.
