To be brutally honest, I've never understood the need to consume alcohol as part of spectating sports. Now, I like good beer, bourbon, and scotch as much as the next person, and when I'm at home relaxing or celebrating with friends (or even watching a game on TV), a tasty beverage may or may not be consumed. But when I'm at a game in person? No, thank you.
Maybe it's the competitive athlete in me, the fact that I spent my first four years in college in the marching band where drinking on football game day was not permitted or rational, or that my grandfather taught me to score baseball games and pay attention to every play. Whatever the reason, when I am at a game I am focused on the game, and alcohol does absolutely nothing to enhance the experience for me.
I'm not really saying that our beloved university should not sell alcohol in the stadium, or that those of you that do enjoy alcohol as part of your game day experience are somehow wrong or inferior or anything else. I guess my question is, do we really want to see thousands more people standing in line waiting to pay for an overpriced (and probably pretty crappy) beer rather than populating the stands and cheering for the Buckeyes?
