Special Pre-Tourney Knosh?
« on: 2014-02-02, 19:45:43 »
Do you have a special drink or food you take before entering a major tourney?

Mine is a large coffee with sugar & cream or an iced triple espresso & milk, and an energy bar.

Gatorade and/or water

I also prefer Gatorade or a pitcher of water with fresh cut lemon slices floating about.  Coffee makes me cramp up and the mead is reserved for later in the evening.   ;)

Water and beef jerky, usually, but not too much.

After tourney I usually drink Lamentations of the Women tea.

Hey!! We already did the 'fava beans & chianti' bit here. Let's get some originality going.
