I go to the arena for basketball, not beer.  If it is there, whatever, if it isn't, whatever.

I don't know how you can't serve beer at the PBA after watching a game like tonight's against Indiana.

The fans, the energy they can provide at games - in the recruiting process - can make a difference in winning... But I promise you this. You give us a chance... It's going to be a blast." - Coach Miles

They are not smart if they do not allow the selling of alcohol.  A lot of money will be brought in if they allow it. 

Who will that money go to?

i'm not sure if booze sales can go to UNL, but the added ticket and concession revenue absolutely will

The first time a friend of mine took me to a Creighton game...I kept looking around and wondering...How do they call this a sellout?

This was before the extra seats were added above the "beer concourse"...it took me quite a while before I looked in the upper end section to realize those empty seats I was seeing were about equal to the 2 thousand souls milling in the upper concourse to the north.

I am guessing those northern concourse "fans" are representative of the ticket sales that will not happen at the PBA without alcohol sales...

Me? I know how to take 2 beers to my seat during halftime....or go without 4 my team,..but I would prefer the choice.

I hope the seats have those little cupholders on the backs, whether they sell beer or not.  Can't tell you how many times someone sliding past me has knocked over my drink at Devaney.  Or, worse yet, someone sliding by the person behind me has knocked over THEIR drink and it sloshed down into my jacket in the chair next to me.

 

Either way, cupholders.

So, I had a dog when I was a kid.  A black lab who followed me everywhere.  Wagging tail, loved to play fetch and have his belly scratched.  Best friend a kid could have.  One morning, I went outside to see him prancing around a pine tree and, at the top of the tree was a young raccoon that he'd treed.  Mom held him back so the coon could beat its retreat, but as soon as the coon touched the ground, Magnum broke free, inhaled the coon's head in his jaws, and with the efficiency of a trained assassin, dispatched the coon with three violent shakes of his head.

 

It was at that moment I realized I didn't have a dog for a pet; I had a cold-blooded killer.  And I was the only one in my grade who had one.  The other guys were jealous.

Okay, so...no beer in the PBA.

 

The burning question though really is, will there be NyQuil sales?
