Alcohol, Sporting events, Violence and TV

Who has the biggest billboards at Phillies games?
Who advertises the most when sporting events are on besides the goddamn Geico lizard?
Who pays for million (if not multi-million) dollar contracts with teams, TV stations, internet sites etc… to advertise?

Ask yourselves these questions then ask yourself why there are so many problems with underage drinking, overage drinking, and rufies at Phillies games or just sporting events in general. Ok not so much rufies but I just like saying Rufies…Rufies TM.  Did anyone else see that commercial for Rufies where the Geico lizard “had his way” with the old guy after a rufie-martini?

In all seriousness the answer to this question is Beer companies like Bud, Miller, and Coors…..If you disagree with me look around the parking lot and remember Natural light is made by Budweiser (it’s triple cola equivalent). And Milwaukee’s Best is made by Miller (it’s President’s choice equivalent, yeah that’s right I brought up President’s choice!!! BOOOYAAAAAHKAH!).

So what does this mean? Hey I don’t give a shit about politics and everyone knows I love beer just as much as the next guy (maybe a little too much)…But what I do know is that the teams, leagues, TV stations and just about everyone else in the sports business except for Chris “Wheels” Wheeler indirectly promotes and markets beer. And we’ve been listening for a long long time…
