Bottlecap Rebuses

The pic below links to a giant view of 10 easy-to-view bottlecaps consumed by 10 different individuals - moderation all things, gang!

From inside the caps of Lion's Head Lager. Most assuredly NOT antique, but how cool. Not some dreary, humorless a-hole marketing yutz (which describes 90% of these shoulda-been-accountants-instead self deceivers (See? I exonerated you, marketing based reader!(See? parentheses within parentheses!))) driving me to register at some web site. Or nothing for that matter. Just a challenge to the ol' Broca's area to see if it's time to ease up. Or to check if you're not smashed enough, if you're staying in, I suppose. Either way, I can't see any modern day corporate manager I've ever met that would hypothetically say, "Yeah! Let's do that!" Well, maybe Richard Branson. Really a time-gone-by type of je ne sais quois, quintessence, lagniappe.
Tasty too.

Oh yeah, worthless prize to the first correct answers (since I can't answer two of 'em you might be able to fake it) Sorry - no consecutive winners, "K".

#1 - cheer for the home team!

Yay!

They used to put rebuses under the lids of a bunch of Nastygansett products - 'gansett Porter and Pickwick Ale - not that I ever drank bottle after bottle watching the world go by in the window of the local pizza and beer place when I should have been getting work done or anything...

Got all but 190 and 264. I like the fact that the 'track' in 291 is old Lionel 3-rail toy train stuff.

I believe 190 is "Be a good sport". I guess that's a baby saying "goo", though the printing seems to have bled together or something. If you kind of squint you can make out that it was supposed to say "goo", I think.

I also am stumped on 264. I would guess it's "count"-something... but I'll be damned if I can decipher the last bit.

I recall another El Crappo beer I used to drink back in the day that had the rebuses under the caps, Buckhorn beer. I think it was like $4 for a case or something ridiculous like that. With Michigan's 10-cent bottle deposit, I am pretty sure you could buy one case, then, when you finished it and returned the bottles, afford two cases :-D
