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.

My next (and first) submission to the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest:  Chief Detective Marcel de Brouffe surveyed the pallid corpse of the latest apparent victim of the Susquehanna Strangler and noted all they key indicators were unmistakeably present:  the victim's wrists tightly bound with her own stockings; the ligature marks in a ringed pattern around the victim's neck; and the silver duct tape strapped around the victim's mouth, which served to remind the Chief Detective that he needed to stop by the hardware store on his way home tonight.

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

 

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