Yeah, because there isn't shit else to do in that state. Isn't Memorial Stadium the third or fourth largest city in Nebraska during home games?


And, you have a plethora of establishments literally within a stone's throw of the stadium. Everyone is usually wasted at the game.

It edges out the city of Bellevue, NE for 3rd. And yes, everyone just gets drunk before the game, which has been extremely helpful the last few years...

I think it would still sell out. I do not usually drink when I am at a game live. Too much waiting in line...for a beer...dump the piss...another beer...It sucks. I will tail gate before and definitely after.

Now when I am set up to watch a Sunday of games at home, you can bet the beer is cold and ready. I am not going to run out.

I've been rooting for the Chiefs for damn near 40 years now, and let me tell you this - you people are never gonna have any longevity if you keep watching the Chiefs sober....

If they did, it must not apply to events in all sports then. They sell beer at Creighton basketball games at the Qwest Center. Which again, is off university property, so there may be some kind of loophole with that.

Doesn't matter to me. Last season i didn't drink a single beer and if i did it was maybe 1 or 2. This year i see more beer drinkin cuz ill be going over to a buddys house that will be cookin and have LOTS of beer handy so...but i am crazy as hell during games without beer, who knows what i'll do if im intoxicated, maybe ill throw a chair instead of my hat!

My guess would be the off campus venues are not owned by the schools that paly there, and the NCAA has no authority over the management of those facilities.

beer is more of a friday or saturday night thing for me, usually during the games i'm recovering.

i just want to focus on the game and not miss anything talking or being drunk, i might drink a boulevard or two at most, but mostly i'm just zoned into the game.

I almost always drink beer during games.

In fact, hearing that FOX NFL music makes me crave a beer in a Pavlovian way.

NOTE: We were doing ads for Coors Light, and we were talking to young beer drinkers (21-25) about football and beer.
One guy talked about how they get cases of beer and get together Sunday morning, watch the morning game, pass out half-way through the afternoon game, and wake up at some point during the Sunday night game.
The other guys in the room were like "yeah...yeah." Like it was an experience they could all relate to.

I've certainly done that. Though, nothing's more fun than going to the bar for the early game, and just drinking all goddamned day and night through the night game. One time of doing that stands out to me in particular. Me and Boozer sitting at the bar watching the Raiders play the Seahawks on a Sunday night... having been drinking since 10am. Only other people in the bar at that point were Raider fans. Every time something in the game went against the Raiders, we'd yell "Yeah! F*ck the Raiders!" and were always answered with a rousing round of "F*ck you" and the like.

Ah, good times.

Even when I was a kid and drank like a fish, I almost never drank at concerts or sporting events. IMO, drinking is something you do at a party, a bar or at home. I've never understood the point of drinking EVERYWHERE YOU GO, although I've known lots of people who do. Why get hammered at a special event like that? I prefer to enjoy the experience sober. And I sure wouldn't pay $7 a glass for the f#cking swill they serve at most stadiums. To hell with piss warm Miller Lite, Budweiser or (god forbid) Coors Light - if I want a drink, I'll have a REAL BEER (Sam Adams) or some good scotch when I get home.

I did sneak a flask of scotch into Arrowhead once - I'm sure Brad appreciated it :D but I don't think I even drank a full shot's worth of it the entire game. It was a waste of time for me.

In fact, we tailgate in front of the sportsbar on the morning of opening day. The owner shows up to us grilling in the parking lot, already drinking.

I agree with you. I'll drink while i'm watching the Chiefs at home or a bar, but the hell if i'm paying 7 bucks for a beer.

I enjoy beer and I enjoy football, they are not however mutually dependent on one another. I can enjoy beer and I can enjoy football without each other, or together.

I usually drink a beer or two while watching at home, but don't like to drink alot at the game because I don't like the pissing lines....or urinal trough spatter.

Unless the Chiefs have the Sunday or Monday night game, I don't drink at all during the games. Drinking at 10am is not my thing, especially since taking 3.5 hours out of a Sunday is difficult enough.
