Harry Caray Kept a ‘Drink Diary’ of 288-Day Binge


Ok, it’s not exactly the Diary of Anne Frank, but the diary of legendary Chicago Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray was recently discovered. Ok, it’s not exactly your typical diary either, but a day-planner that documents 288 straight days of boozing in 1972.

288. Straight. Days! 

That’s the kind of boozing that gets your liver into the drunkards Hall of Fame next to Mickey Mantle, Charles Bukowski and Charlie Sheen.

The diary ends on Dec. 24, after spending at least 354 of the previous 357 days in bars, and Caray writes: “Vacation in Acapulco.”
