How much does an HFace weigh?

Well I know it's been a long time since I last blogged and I can't wait to tell you about my new adventures in Eastern Europe (well there really aren't that many) but first I wanted to share with you something that caught my Hap eyes on the internet:

Sponsor Cruzcampo gives each player their weight in beer for winning the football championship in June.

Hmmm... I was intrigued and of course I read on..

Spain will be rewarded for winning the European Championship with beer. The Spanish football players will each receive their weight in beer (Holy crap!) from sponsor Cruzcampo after winning Euro 2008 at Austria and Switzerland in June. Sounds like a fantastic incentive to me!

The heaviest player, Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina, will receive 95.6 kilograms of beer, while the lightest squad member, Villarreal winger Santi Cazorla, will get 70.4 kilograms.

In total, the 23 players will receive 1,742 litres of beer, or the equivalent of 5,200 bottles. Wowsers! That's a lot of beer! I wonder if they're providing glasses too or will players just drink from the Euro Cup?

Now I decided to weigh myself to see how much free Cruzcampo I could expect to receive but unfortunately, even soaking wet, I weigh in at at less than 100g which may guarantee me a thimble of beer. Mind you, I don't play football nor did I win the Euro Cup but I did cheer for the Spanish team. That must count for something. Please Cruzcampo can you help a little H Face out here?
