Proof that beer fuzzies your thinking

Apparently this is what passes for thoughtful consideration by SEC athletic directors.

As an old person myself, I don’t know whether I should feel insulted or confused by that.

    Cue the “Millennials are Killing Stadium Beer Sales” article.

    Chuckle. Thanks for this morning endorphins…a good start for the day. 🙂

    I may be an “old person” but I find that after 5–6 beers I feel much younger.

      My youthful self surfaces after 2 and I’m dozing off after 4. Bear in mind though, they’re usually pretty high gravity. #buuurrrrp #whhhiiizzz

    I thought it was Ambien that fuzzies your thinking.

    Eh, I give stricklin some slack here, from his perspective he may be using the student population as his baseline. Maybe he assumed it would attract the student body and in fact it just attracted retired alumni.

    It is ironic though, it would be wiser for the ad to placate the alumnus and the student body.

    I guess I’m too old, addled, drunk, or something, but I seriously don’t know what point he was trying to make with that statement.

      Me neither. Isn’t the drinking age 21? So why would he want the students showing up?


      • Gravidy

        Yes, it seems as though he’s saying, “No underage students showed up at our alcohol sales test run, so we are shelving that idea.”


  7. I for one would advocate making the Sanford Bridge a tunnel, soaring the scoreboard as high in the sky as necessary and building a beer garden on top of the tunnel that allow SRO viewing of the field from the end zone.

      That would make it about 100′ to fall on the Student Bookstore side of the bridge when you heft that last one and over 90k gets to see you disappear into the sunset – literally.


      • Well, I didn’t go to Tech so I am definitely not an engineer. I don’t know how you could do it. Heck leave the scoreboard where it is and put the top of the tunnel or bottom of the beer garden flush with the top of the scoreboard.

        Just put a beer garden on top of Sanford Bridge so you can stand there with a beer in hand and watch those Dawgs.

    It’s almost worth wanting beer sales just to watch the disaster unfold.

    It’s almost double worth wanting beer sales just to watch all the complaints when UGA doesn’t sell Tropicalia (when Creatures struggles to supply the ATL’s demand as it is without six homegames a year to supply and that’s not a slam on Creatures as their new production facility comes on line but their distribution footprint remains the same–a very non money grab by a MicroBrewery).

    The fl AD’s quote does seem wierd because if you get the Old People on board you get the money and influence on board as well, right?

    But I’m just a spiteful little fan who engaged in rather underhanded tactics from the moment Kirby left alerbama.

    This old alcoholic doesn’t need no stinkin’ tent to drink inside, rather , gimme a nice ACed place with the craft beers aboundin’.

    Yall went and made me thirsty as we approach beer thirty and the call of “Walkers to the bar” to see who can still push their walkers ungainly and fastest towards the beckoning mecca of spilled swill in the carpeting. Craft beers are on sale in our Old Fart’s Haunt all day today and (wouldn’t you know it!), I can only take two of the 8.4 %ters before calling it quits now. Maybe I’ll have four 5.5%ter amber ales instead. Anyway, whose idea was it to post a beer blog today just before leaving for the bar race for a free beer for the first arrival in the walker race?

    The other old farts are going to crap when they see the new big tires on my Fing Walker.
