The story: In an attempt to curb underage drinking at the Homecoming game Nov. 3, the University of Arizona will control the sale of beer on UA Mall west of Cherry Avenue.
Your take: Bottom’s up! Given UA’s 2-6 record, beer consumption should be encouraged among fans to ease their pain, the Citizen’s online community slurs, er, says. “If UA keeps (Athletic Director Jim) Livengood and (coach Mike) Stoops, we’ll all need to start drinking a lot more!” Alex C. says.
Several readers, such as Jonny C., wonder why the peasants who attend UA games can’t drink when the “big-money types” in Arizona Stadium’s skyboxes can. In fact, the skyboxes are dry.
Should UA let the beer flow (to legal drinkers) at games? That’s the case (so to speak) at Stanford, say Ferris B. and Mike K. “I wonder what the attendance would be if UA served beer inside the stadium?” Mike asks.
It’s a debate, says Joe Q., that will put beer-drinkers and teetotalers at “lagerheads.” Sorry.
