the JFK courage award generally goes to the guy who can manage to get blind, stinking drunk, drive his car into a body of water with his pregnant mistress strapped in, yet still manage to get out, swim to shore, walk home, not call the cops for 12 hours and stay outta jail. it's called the luck of the irish.
