Teetotaller Tuesdays

with 3 comments

Geez, when I said something might have to be done about the losers brawling in the the 500’s, I didn’t mean for Godfrey to go all Hiroshima on them. There will no longer be beer served in the Toonie Tuesday sections, which is sort of missing the point. Nobody in the 500 level is spending the 80$ it would take at the dome to get violently/abusively drunk over three hours.

Slightly more to the point is that security is going to search everyone like mad to stop them from bringing outside alcohol and/or coming in roaring drunk. “While these measures have the potential to create line-ups and delay entry into the building, the integrity and enjoyment of our product outweighs these inconveniences,” apparently. I can hear the crickets chirping next home Tuesday already…

  1. Wait, so we’re just going to be “patted down” on Toonie Tuesday’s, or all the time now?

  2. From the release it seemed to be only talking about Toonie Tuesdays, and maybe only for those sections. I know, my heart skipped a beat too. Every game would be flat-out ridiculous. Not to mention it is NOT 10$ beer time.

    Oh yeah, and Godfrey also hinted at some measures to stop people from coming in drunk. Probably just looking everyone who stinks of alcohol in the eyes, but I think it would be hilarious if the cops brought breathalyzers.

  3. Well, I never show up drunk, so that shouldn’t be a problem, but this whole “no outside alcohol” could become somewhat annoying. Meh, I guess there’s always new ways around this.

    Although it does seem like they’re becoming more suspicious than they used to be. At Sunday’s game, an usher actually asked me if I happened to have any alcohol in my water bottle. I didn’t that day, but really, like anyone would say yes if they did. Still though, it was kind of bullshit to ask me that. Especially since we were in like, row 18 in the 500’s and he only asked me…
