    at least the last time the Buffs were this bad, the drinking age was 18 and beer was not only available in folsom, but actually brought into the student section by beer vendors.

    it made the gameday experience much more palatable, all things considered.

    it is the humane thing to do at this point. you can't expect everyone to face this sober.

    Best thing was the drunken frat boys grabbing hotties in the first row and passing them on their hands to the top...

    "Allowed" is the word you are looking for. As far as the beer? Would be awesome, but it's never going to happen.

    Last time we spoke, bohn told me that beer sales before the game so people would show up earlier was a "good point." It is something right?

    Can't you drink beer now in the suites? If so, then why not throughout the stadium?

    Darren Rovell once tweeted some stuff about beer sales at West Virginia and they made between $50-80k per home game in beer sales. And beer sales were cut off halfway into the third.

    This would be fine by me. CU tried all kinds of stupid stuff to keep the consumption down. Stuff like only selling two at a time and other such absurdities. I maintained then, and now, that it's virtually impossible to get obscenely drunk off of 3.2 beer. You piss it away too fast. They should simply allow people to buy as many as they want to, and cut off sales with 5 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter.

    That is simply not right, Sackman. Toxicologists tell us that regular beer such as Bud or Coors, what people refer to as 6 % is really only about 4.3 to 4.6 %. And carbonation gets the alcohol into the blood stream quicker than non carbonated alcoholic beverages. I can assure you we have defended many DUI's where the def. was drinking 3.2 beer. And pissing has absolutely NOTHING to do with oxidizing alcohol in your system. Once ethyl alcohol gets into your blood stream, it stays there until your liver does its thing. And the liver does its thing VERY slowly.

    What if someone donated $20 million to CU, but on the condition that beer return to Folsom? For $100 million could we get Bacardi shot girls prowling the aisles?

    Here, this might help you.

    I calculated a person like me, 160 lbs. drinking a six pack of 3.2 beer over three hours. The result is legally drunk by definition in nearly every state in the country by law. Do you have some data to back up your contention?

    True story - when I was a student back in the day, Gov. Lamm was at a game and happened to find his way to the bottom of the section I was in. Next thing you know he's being passed up and I actually had the Governor of Colorado by the seat of his pants and passed him up. My brush with greatness...

    To be fair, Sackman said "obscenely" drunk. I don't think anyone here considers .08 obscenely drunk. And I don't think a lot of us are 160 either.

    Also, I did the same exercise using the same data and it came back with .069, which isn't legally drunk in nearly every state (or any state that I am aware of).

    His last post did not say obscenely drunk. And that BA is not intoxicated, but it is "impaired" and the difference is 8 points against your license vs. 12 points. It is alcohol, and the concentration might be less but not as much as you obviously think.

    That wasn't at you at all but if he's going to call me out on grammar, he should try to have a semblance of good grammar.

    Hey! Leave 'Tini alone! Also, Tini, don't end your sentences in prepositions.
