"I'm always outside, looking in."
Coming from the Big Blue Bear, these words made us laugh, made us cry, made us think -- about how terrible it would be to watch, year after year, as tens of thousands of people drank good beer while you could only lick your parched lips in agony.
So congratulations to Big Blue Bear, who won our recent Great American Beer Festival ticket away, even if you aren't really the Big Blue Bear.
But guess what? We've discovered TWO MORE tickets to give away, starting now.
Here's how it works:
Leave a comment telling us -- in five words or less -- why you deserve the tickets. Make sure you leave at least your first name and a valid e-mail address (we won't share it with anyone), so we can contact you if you're the winner. If you entered last time, and you liked your comment, don't be afraid to resubmit. You never know....
The contest ends at 8 a.m. Wednesday.
Pro tips: Bring the funny but don't go over five words.
About the tickets: These are are good for the Thursday, September 16, session. And no, you can't resell these.
