My hero

Marc Weiszer ($$) has a story up about alcohol sales at Georgia in the first year of the new policy.  If you care, it was over $230,000 for the four sports that were allowed to serve alcohol at games.  But for me, this was the highlight of the article:

…  A noon tipoff against North Florida that drew 1,868 on Dec. 8 had just $8 in sales. That would mean one alcoholic drink was sold.

Beer at a women’s basketball nooner?  Hardcore.  If you are that person, and you read GTP, please step forward.  You deserve to be properly honored for your effort.  (Also, I’d like to ask why you stopped at only one.)

    Probably all they had was some light beers.
    Dude went up and bought a beer paid for it, and all was light.
    I’da done the same.
    Life’s too short to drink poor beer!

    Those are rookie numbers.

    • Sounds like rookie decisions on which events at which they’re offered. Lady Dawgs noon tip sounds like something Michael Adams or McGarity would have chosen to skew the economic return data to kill alcohol sales. We’re the other events a Tuesday softball game or men’s tennis?

        My thoughts exactly. We got a bunch of church ladies running this thing.

          Vandy was serving beer at their (our?) stadium just months after the conference vote! We maybe the last (what is the count on teams that don’t serve beer at football games?)to make the move and it won’t matter administration will figure out a way to have some charity in charge of selling it that dispenses about 2 cases per game!

    Maybe instead of them having only one beer it was their last of many for that morning.

  7. Was that possibly the mid-week nooner where UGA brings the elementary school kids in from all over Clarke County?

    One beer? I question the commitment of the college kids these days.

    If somehow I ended up at a women’s basketball game, I don’t care what time it is, I’m gonna have a damn beer.

    If I was somehow under extreme duress and forced to a Saturday, noon, womens basketball game that my child wasn’t participating in, then I would consume copious amounts of $8 per 16oz beer; quantities limited only by the length of the activity.
    I’m not a basketball guy so yes. I would find intoxication as the primary relief valve.

    The guy probably fell asleep after the first beer.
