Sometimes you just need to go on a 19 run tear, and the minor league affiliate of the Mariners, the Lumberkings, made it count by overcoming a 17-1 deficit. That shows more determination than a one-legged guy kicking water up hill!

We know what you're wondering. So, here are the answers: Yes, each 4.5 oz soap contains real beer. No, they do not smell like yesterday's skunked Studweiser that has been sitting in the new day's sun for six hours.

Each Beer Soap is made using one delicious brew in addition to a variety of all natural ingredients. Each soap variety has a different fragrance (depending on its source brew), but none of them can be described as overly beer-like.

There is a hint of hops, a tinge of an herbal aroma, and sometimes a citrus note (depending on the brew). However, none of them are overpoweringly fragrant. In fact, there are two varieties that have been left unscented (Guinness and Sam Adams).

How the treatment worked:

1) One of the patient's two olfactory bulbs was removed and the olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) were grown in culture

2) 100 micro injections of OECs were made above and below the damaged area of the spinal cord

3) Four strips of nerve tissue were placed across an 8mm gap in the spinal cord. The scientists believe the OECs acted as a pathway to stimulate the spinal cord cells to regenerate, using the nerve grafts as a bridge to cross the severed cord

Darek Fidyka, who was paralysed from the chest down in a knife attack in 2010, can now walk using a frame.

The treatment, a world first, was carried out by surgeons in Poland in collaboration with scientists in London.

Details of the research are published in the journal Cell Transplantation.
