And that's how you earn the nickname "Superdrunk".

"Superdrunk"?

Is that like "Supermurder", when you REALLY REALLY kill somebody?

The definition "superdrunk" is pretty pathetic.

.17 BAC can be 4-5 beers

I can't compute 20 year olds as minors. What a ridiculous law.

Well certainly many people drink underage. But taking it up a notch to DUI when you know your life and future is wrecked if caught, it shows why perhaps considering that a "minor" isn't such a bad idea.

Absolutely nothing wrong with the drinking - in Canada, he would be legal. DUI, though, is a big no-no. Even if some kids are dumb enough to drink and drive, it's not a reason to forbid anyone under 21 from drinking. That's just stupid.

Idk about 'hype'. I'm pretty sure he was/is seen as a pretty safe prospect to at least play on a checking line. Not an offensive dynamo or anything though.

It all depends on your size, the period over which you drank the beers, how long ago you had your last beer, etc. For a guy of Sheahan's size, a .17 BAC would correspond to roughly a dozen beers over about 3 hours. It's legit drunk, not just buzzed. I'm sure he would have been very dangerous on the road at this BAC, with a greatly enhanced risk of killing other drivers and/or pedestrians.

This doesn't make Sheahan the devil or anything, but driving drunk is an incredibly stupid, selfish act. You are literally putting lives at risk just so you don't have to take a cab/bus. There are roughly 10,000 to 14,000 drunk driving fatalities in the US alone, it's no joke. I definitely don't think it would be a bad thing if Sheahan spent a small amount of time in jail for this, it could serve as an effective wakeup call. When people do something like this, get caught, and DON'T get punished, it's basically encouragement to do it again.

I realize that he's in the AHL now but seems like all the bad publicity happens to college prospects nowadays.

For a petite Chinese woman, maybe. For the average male (that's not even taking into account this kid's size) .17 BAC would require 8+ drinks (8 if it's in the space of an hour, increase it to compensate for the time over which he was drinking). It's not stumbling blackout drunk, but it's solidly into drunk territory.

College provides the atmosphere for shenanigans. Especially the frat system in the US.

Indeed. Plus most people will not drink 8 beers in an hour, this BAC for a big guy like Sheahan would indicate roughly a dozen beers over 3 hours, assuming it was measured within an hour or so of him having his last drink. You are definitely drunk with a BAC this high.

Hence the wording "can". And as I was talking about the law itself not Sheahan's case. My point goes along with what you were saying though how everyone BAC is gonna be different and some can handle more alcohol much better, and .08 is pretty arbitrary

Yeah neither his life nor his future is "wrecked". But he's a professional athlete, he has the money/means to have a driver or pay for a taxi

Yeah he's projected as a solid 3rd/2nd line center depending on his offensive development.
