Niners Club | The term applied collectively to Vancouver Canadians baseball fans who have consumed nine beers and nine hot dogs within the somewhat flexible span of nine innings (on average: 3.5 hours). It is not a formally constituted club, so membership is without any benefit but title.

Usage | “I’ve only ever seen attempts at entry into The Niners Club, and boy were they ever messy…”
