No good beer in Soccertown

The of the USL 1st Division (one level below MLS) opened their brand spankin' new soccer-dedicated stadium yesterday amid sheets of rain and electrical problems.

It was a fantastic game, and an impressive stadium, with one disturbing oversight on management's part: No craft beer. Zip. Nada. Not even good imports, unless you count Heineken and Sol.

I would've liked to see something, Saranac, Anything.

So I ordered Heineken, and they gave me the whole keg can. At a soccer match. I biefly entertained the notion of going all soccer fan on them, filling the keg can up with water, and whipping it at a player, but that's not really me. '

So, please, Rhinos management, work something out. A Bud might be fine at a baseball game, but the world's game requires world-class beer.

First off, Soccer Fan would have filled up that can with piss, not water. And come on...the worlds game deserves world beer? In Germany maybe, but this is America. We still don't give a shit about Soccer, which is why beer choices (actually all choices) and slim.
