So evidently one thing that is not affected by a recession is Beer.
However, Congress now wants to pass a beer stimulus that would essentially redefine and remove taxes for smaller craft brewers.
Great now we'll create more beer snobs.
But it got me thinking what are some ideas in the sports world that can save our economy.
Now this thing is pretty wide open. It can range from the wacky and crazy, to the semi legitimate. Hell if you want to you can attach excel's and power points. I won't read them, but feel free.
Ok here's my idea.
BYOB games for baseball.
Here's the plan. Once a month teams will allow fans to bring in their own coolers for Saturday games. Basically, you would be able to bring in whatever you can stuff into a small size cooler, and for a small fee (think of it as a corking fee) you can drink your heart out. Now, If you take a larger cooler then you would have to purchase an extra seat next to you or your party for that cooler to "sit in" kinda like fat people on Airplanes.
The fee would have to be pretty hefty. I would probably take the average take on concessions per attendee and slap that shit on there. So overall this wouldn't really be a cost effective thing for the fan, however many idiots like myself would jump at the chance to drink cases upon cases at a Saturday ball game.
Will underage kids sneak in alcohol with coke bottles? Yes
Will it be a logistical shit storm? Yes
Are there certain legal liabilities that I chose to ignore? Absolutely.
But it would be awesome.
So let's hear your ideas.
