Coming soon to UT football: Charlie Strong...and boozin'! According to Chip Brown at Orangebloods:
Starting with the Texas-Baylor basketball game Wednesday night, beer sales will be available at Texas baseball and softball games as well as men's and women's basketball games, the source told OB.
The beer sales at UT sporting events this spring, which would include the Texas spring football game on April 19 and the Texas Relays March 26-29, will serve as a "testing of the waters" for football. If all goes well, beer would be sold at Texas football games starting this fall, the source said.
While most will look at the shrinking attendance at football games as the driving force to adding beer sales, that theory only serves as proof for what we've been saying: even when they are good, no one cares about Longhorns basketball! The Erwin Center is a TERRIBLE atmosphere. Time to add a little bit of rowdy to the crowd. Boozin'!
