Last week, our colleagues at The A.V. Club posted a fun blog query: What are the things you’ve only done because you saw them in pop culture? The cool writers there listed cool things like smoking, revving a Mustang, and clearing a desk in anger. I immediately knew my answer: ordering two beers at the same time like…
An undeniable spoil of victory is the unassailable right to talk mad shit about your vanquished foes, forever, no matter their prominence nor how splendidly they performed. The Warriors are very good at this, as in the case of Draymond Green using t-shirts to mock LeBron James after each of the last two Warriors…
By far the most captivating part of this fan’s frankly alarmingly committed pursuit of a foul ball at Saturday’s Orioles-Blue Jays game is that poor beer in his left hand. Will it survive? Won’t anyone think of the beer??
As baseball catching implements go, the beer cup is less than ideal—it’s minimally flexible, the opening is only slightly larger than the diameter of a baseball, and there’s dang beer in there! But a man will do desperate things to bring home a foul ball from a May Giants-Pirates game:
Tom Brady visited The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight, accepting the host’s challenge to chug a “beer.” We put the beverage in scare quotes because there’s a decent question as to what, exactly, the Super Bowl-losing quarterback actually quaffed.
I have, myself, been mad at beer. One time I drank several too many Smithwick’s at a pub quiz, and the following morning had the worst beer shits in the history of mankind. Fuckin’ beer! This is not like that: Seattle Sounders fans are mad at beer for, like, appropriation, or whatever.
Toronto FC tied Atlanta United 2-2 yesterday to seal up MLS’s Eastern Conference with a record-breaking 69 points. The best highlight of the game came in the second half, when Jozy Altidore (lol) finished past Bard Guzan (lol) and got a beer tossed in his direction by an Atlanta fan. Ever the kind helper, Sebastian…
What’s with this Nets fan, who just sits there and lets his beer get blasted to hell by an errant Quincy Acy pass? Hey, look alive, buddy!
It’s beer and hot dog time on Ask a Clean Person: The Podcast!
Even if you’re at a minor league game between the Fort Wayne TinCaps and the Clinton LumberKings, the rules are the same: If you catch a foul ball in your beer cup, you have to chug that shit.
The Canadian legal system has reached a conclusion in the Great Beer-Throwing Incident of the 2016 American League Wild Card game.
This is great. Last night, the Pirates’ broadcast touted Sunday’s kids day, where all fans 14 and under in attendance would be given a free baseball glove. To go along with the promotion, the broadcast showed kids in the stands.
Just like that Marlins guy last night, Cubs fans in the bleachers got wet trying to catch a dinger this afternoon. Unfortunately, this was because Anthony Rizzo’s first-inning dong exploded a fan’s wayward beer.
That man you see above you there is Rutgers Athletic Director Pat Hobbs, indulging in a cold one at the official Rutgers student tailgate before the school’s game against New Mexico on Saturday. Rutgers opened up a student tailgate zone this season to try and boost attendance, but after two games, the school has…
For the record, baseball gloves tend to perform better as catching devices.
For the discerning American beer drinker, these are truly glorious times. Odds are, your town features a craft brewery or two, and even if it doesn’t, big “craft” brewers like Sierra Nevada or New Belgium have never been more accessible in stores and bars. If you want, you could go the rest of your inebriated life…
