Beer ain't drinkin'

Sometimes I think I'm real boring, then I read something like this and I feel better about myself:

mysticcat: Beer ain't drinkin'


There are many football seasons when Bears fans need to get serious about their drinking to make it through the year. This, so far, has not been one of them. Instead, we are taking a hint from the cheeseheads and are drinking beer to build insulation so we can go shirtless at Soldier Field well into the winter.

when alcoholics build up a high tolerance to beer due to heavy drinking and need several beers an hour to achieve a buzz they tend to make these kinds of statements, usually a few years later there is an intervention held.

The Bears - Beers. Not much separates those two words.

You may be agreeing with me and I'm confused but I meant that once you reach the point where 'beer ain't drinkin' you're an alcoholic (ie its gotta be liquor, unless you mean wine I guess?), at least from my anecdotal experience. This does not exclude alcoholism in other situations as well...

Story surprises me though, even if zero Bears fans had traveled wouldn't those seats have been Titans fans instead? Who would also enjoy drinking after a game? Never thought of people in Nashville as lightweights.

Because I had five beers and two boilermakers Sunday afternoon.

Then played video games with my kids until they had to go to bed.

It ain't drinkin' if you can still fix dinner and machine gun the bad guys.

I just got back into Chicago from Nashville yesterday, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies.

Saturday night the strip on Broadway looked like Clarke Street during St. Patty's day, except that instead of green, everyone was wearing blue and orange. It ended up being a crazy night. Then we got up and started tailgating around 9, every party group was Bears fans. I could only count the number of Titans tailgaters on one hand. Inside the stadium was even crazier, the article said 50%, but I'd have to estimate that number closer to 80%. It really was Soldier Field South.

At one point it got to be too boring taunting the Titans, so our entire quadrant of the stadium ended up taunting the one jagoff who wore a Rodgers jersey with a "Green Bay Sucks!" chant.

My momma always said, a drunk is a guy that parties all night, then calls in to work the next day. An alcoholic is the one who drinks in car before he goes in.

maxpower007: Isn't there a rule against the use of the Hero tag pertaining to Bears fans?


If there is, it gets superseded by the rule for giving the Hero tag to Beer fans.

/see also the story a few years back about a guy rushing into his burning home to save a case of beer
//that was on Fark and got the Hero tag

Food in TN is pretty good all around, Nashville has some great restaurants (I know more of the little restaurants a little ways out, but still delicious). Pittsburgh food, OTOH....

Sandwich with soggy french fries, slaw, ketchup, choice of crappy meat.

One of the Steelers' fans I know here in NY will rat out restaurants if they don't use Heinz ketchup in their Heinz bottle, because Pittsburgh, or something.

I'm also a Bears fan and I tend to agree with you. Really though this could be said about the majority of football fans. Or sports fans in general. Or people in general.
 
2012-11-06 02:00:54 PM
I like how everyone here is shocked and appalled at the amount of Bears fans at the game yet the same thing happens whenever the Steelers or Colts come to town. It's like these people don't realize the NFC has fans too.

That, and they've never been to a Vandy game.

Maybe people in Nashville go home to drink, while people from out-of-town have to hit "The Paradise Park Trailer Resort" and other establishments. Maybe people down there aren't light-weights, but are poor or prefer to drink at home.

As a Bears fan, and with it being my first NFL game...it was perfect. I knew something was amiss when I got to Nashville Friday night and noticed 4 out of 5 people out and about were wearing Bears clothes. The game itself was a grand experience. I do have to commend the few Titans fans I ran into. They were all nice and welcoming!
