You know how it usually goes: your friend Sid is running late from his bank teller job and forgets to buy ice for the 30 pack you are going to chug before you go into the Phillies game in the 5th inning. Your other buddy Birdshit only has 3 dollars and the free tickets his friend's Dad gave him, and he is lost somewhere in Lancaster, but tells you he is just getting on 95, so him picking up a bag of ice is out of the question. Somewhere around your 6th beer you start to get perturbed that you are drinking a piss warm Coors Light. Your other buddy Scott is pissed off you didn't buy Bud Diesels in the first place and everyone is in a pretty shitty mood because the Phils just dropped another series to the Nationals, your friend Frank's woman won't even let him go to a game anymore, and Wheels won't stop telling us how Ryan Howard needs to look for something more middle-in.
But alas! All of the worlds problems can be solved with a beer can that can cool itself! Scott may still be a little pissy that he has to drink Miller Lite, but we all know all light beers taste the same anyway.

Dealing with injuries in their crease, the Los Angeles Kings called the Flyers to check in on the availability of bad goalie Steve Mason, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.
Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.
Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.
Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.
Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)
A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.
