West Virginia Football: Beer Sales To Curb Tailgating? Um, Sure.

So there's this whole West Virginia beer sale thing. In case you haven't heard yet (amidst all of the Dana Holgorsen fun stuff), West Virginia is trying to sell beer inside the stadium during football games.

The reason? To curb drinking outside the stadium. No, seriously.

Maybe it's just me, but that makes about as much sense as the Pirates building another new stadium. The decision goes up for vote today with the Board of Governors.

So would selling beer inside the stadium really help cut back drinking before the game outside the stadium? Come on.

Beer in the stadium, like any other sporting event, is going to cost significantly more. Fans who want to consume alcohol will certainly buy beer inside, but I don't see how it would cut back on drinking during tailgating. I can see it now - people would drink even more to avoid the high prices inside the stadium. And while it would undoubtedly be a big money maker, most fans wouldn't give up tailgating because beer is available during the game.

Just another bad idea
