1053thefan.radio.com:There’s something new “brewing” at TCU football games this season. TCU posted on its athletics website that it will start selling beer in all areas of Amon G. Carter Stadium this season. Previously, beer had only been available in suites and in premium seating areas.
The school says it made the decision after successful beer sales at its baseball games the last two seasons. All beer will be $7, and sales will begin two hours before kickoff and will end at the start of the fourth quarter. TCU will have about eight different beer selections available (all Miller Coors brands), including hard seltzer.
In exchange, the school is doing away with in-and-out privileges at football games for the sake of fan safety. Anyone leaving the stadium during the game must have a new ticket to re-enter.
Game changer for TCU fans. But with change there is always going to be cause for concern. And that’s no different here. Because across the Big12 this move has people asking, will the alcohol make horned frog fans too horny?
TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati does not seem to think so:
“I am excited to announce we will begin selling beer throughout Amon G. Carter Stadium beginning with our home opener versus Arkansas-Pine Bluff on August 31,” Donati said. “Based on the overwhelming feedback from our season-ticket holders and constituents, we believe this addition will significantly enhance the overall game-day experience for our fans. As always, fan safety is a top priority to us and we will employ best practices to ensure the program is administered in observance of all appropriate safety protocols.”
I like the confidence in AD Donati, I really do, but he clearly has never had a White Claw. If you read the full article, it’s not just beer being sold at the stadium, its hard seltzer too aka White Claws. While I do think it’s a dangerous move, one that even has the potential to make these horned frog fans too horny, its a must for a TCU fanbase in desperate need for some entertainment. Coming off a 7-6 season and currently ranked 24th in the polls, there is no better way to have a college fanbase forget the team sucks than flooding the stadium with White Claws. So, horny or not, the White Claws will be flowing in Fort Worth.
