My kind of woman

I know it’s non-Dawg – hell, it’s non-football – but when somebody’s really got it together, I gotta share.

You go, girl!  Have one on me.

“And, it will enhance the fan experience at Terp games.”

Maryland intends to join the ranks of beer providers at football games, because, you know, it’s all about being able to “enhance the fan experience in the facilities”.  The fact that the school will make money is just an added bonus.

I do like that there’s an egalitarian side to this.

In 2008, the university decided to allow beer and wine sales starting in the 2009 football season in Byrd Stadium’s 64 new luxury suites. That policy — similar to policies at many other schools — states that suite sales must be carefully monitored, sales personnel trained and certified, and drink maximums enforced.

“Beer and wine sales are already available to the hundreds of fans in the boxes and mezzanine level at our sports venues,” Loh noted in the letter. “This proposal will extend that option to fans seated elsewhere.”

Of course, there are those who don’t think the plebes can hold their booze.

“We told them we didn’t think it was a good idea,” Charles W. Caldwell III, chairman of the county’s Board of License Commissioners, said Wednesday of being briefed recently on the plan. “I don’t think they paid any attention to us.”

Maybe it’s because you don’t pay as well, Charles.

We’ll behave. Promise.

You think there’s any way to sneak this by Michael Adams?  The Chick-fil-A College Kickoff contract contains this provision:

Pending agreement of both schools, beer will be available for sale, but sales will be cut off at the end of halftime.

Nah, I didn’t think so, either.

One man’s problem is another man’s tasty malt beverage.

From the folks at SweetWater Brewing:

Our sweet, innocent and moral El Dressel lost his way as Brutus led him down a dark alley to recruit tattoos and car loans for the Columbus hops in an effort to stack his on-field Double IPA recipe with the most aggressive hops O-round. Unfortunately El Dressel was discovered, humiliated and banished, leaving a permanent wrinkle in his sweater vest and instantly creating the Browneyed Buckeye!!!

Get it while you can, because just like last year’s Sugar Bowl win, this one will be gone before you know it!

Too bad it’s only available on draft.  This would make a great looking bottle:

Somebody should ship Gordon Gee a keg.

This has to be one badass beverage, my friends.
