If a serial killer broke into my apartment while I was sleeping in the nude, and I only had enough time to either throw on pair of jeans OR put on some running shoes, I would pick the running shoes every time. Yup. I feel much more vulnerable barefoot than when I'm actually naked. Shoes give me power. I can't fight or run from a man barefoot. No way. Shoes are my spinach.
Huh? What? Gah. I'm fuckin' drunk. Sorry. I just ran a marathon.
According to Manuel J Castillo Garzón, Professor of Human Physiology from Spain's University of Granada, beer is actually better at rehydrating the body after exercise. When he gave some runners a half-pint of beer after a workout, it showed that beer helped quench their thirst and replenish calories better than those given water.
And that drunk, Garzón, isn't the only one backing the claims. Juan Antonio Corbalan, a (drunk) cardiologist who worked formerly with Real Madrid football players and Spain's national basketball team, said beer had the perfect profile for re-hydration after sport.
Spain's national team? So this explains those Pau Gasol commercials ...
