Ah, yes! National Tequilla Day! IIRC, the rule was that it was the home game against BYU, or if there was no BYU home game, then the first home game against an in state opponent. I believe it was my junior year, 1980, and it was NTD. The day was gorgeous, sunny, not too warm. We were losing. I was sitting in the upper half of the student section. Two campus police officers were coming up the stairs on either side of a guy, holding him under the armpits, and dragging him up. He had vomit dripping off his beard. Just about the time he got even with me, he lifted his head up, looked at me, and said "Great Game!".
As I recall, our very own JSHarvey was a Fiji. In fact, I think he even lived in the secret room they had on the second floor, behind the bookcase. I had some good friends who were Fijis. Bunch of drunken degenerates.
You can get it in the parking lot for free.TheAKAggie wrote: ↑May 16th, 2018, 9:59 am$5 for a stadium beer? Sign me upAhbye wrote:This is the nail on the head. The beer garden idea was that particular Asst. AD's grand slam best idea. Everything after that was downhill. In some locales, it's a phenomenal idea. In our locale, we need to get people to the game before we start thinking of ways to drum up revenue selling beer to empty seats.oleblu111 wrote: ↑May 15th, 2018, 2:00 pmI do not know what would need to be done to have beer sales at Maverik stadium. I do not know how successful it would be, but we are up against a person sitting home in his lazy boy watching football on a big screen, with snack's and the beverage of his choice.
Maverik is a good place to watch a football game the chair seats are great field views are outstanding parking is fine, sound system video boards are much improved, concessions and tailgating needs to improve, rather beer sales would help or hurt I do not know for certain. We need to increased revenue from fans a whole lot, so what ever it takes. I do not drink beer at football games I prefer not to do that, but others may feel different.
