Recently, the Miami Heat's Shane Battier admitted that his only pregame superstition is sticking to drinking the same beer.

"I try to drink the same beer -- Bud Light -- but that's about it," Battier told an NBA.com blog. "You never know. I don't want to chance luck and switch up brands, so I'm staying loyal to Bud Light."

Sensing a marketing opportunity, Budweiser showed up at Battier's doorstep and unloaded an entire truck of the swill in his driveway.

All in all, the delivery included about 1,100 cases -- about 26,400 bottles -- of Bud Light. Which means Battier could play one of the most epic rounds of "26,400 bottles of beer on the wall" the world has ever known.

Some further math reveals that the delivery equals 316,800 ounces of Bud Light. Yes, 316,800 ounces of a brew RateBeer.com users describe as "carbonated water with yellow food coloring and a dash of alcohol," "tasteless and bland," and "proof that there is no God." Sounds like a dream come true.
