WWII Veteran Andrew E. Slavonic went viral a couple years ago after he revealed that his secret to a long life was a daily, ice cold Coors Light. Every day, at 4pm sharp, the Pennsylvania native pops a top on one of those beautiful silver bullets.
And yesterday, our American hero turned 103 years old.
“In 1996, he actually started drinking regular Coors beer,” Andrew’s son, Bob Slavonic, told Fox News. “He switched to Coors Light beer about 15 years ago. I think I am the one to blame for the switch because that is all that I have been drinking for about the past 25 years.”
“Around 4:00 p.m., he tells me that it is 4:00 p.m., and it is time for our beer. He gets his Coors Light from the garage beer fridge and enjoys a nice cold one. The bluer the mountains are on the can, the better.”
I’m willing to bet he’s still popping tops on cold Coors Lights. Why? It’s a family tradition. Andrew’s mother lived to be 98 and she drank a beer every day as well, in fact more than one.
“She drank a couple of beers every day. They actually put a beer in her casket. She had her favorite beer mug,” Andy added, “and she carried that with her all day long.”
You hear that people? All you Crossfit folks with your $19 paleo nut butters and your $5,000 Peloton bikes and your $16 dollar cold-pressed kale juices with an extra splash of spirulina… all you need is a cold Coors Light once a day.
