Beer Me

January 3, 2018

The Nationals have their Presidents, the Braves have The Freeze, and the Green Bay Gamblers—USHL hockey team and sports pride of Wisconsin (just kidding)—have their beer. On Tuesday night, Budweiser, Bud Light, Coors Light, and Michelob Ultra took to the hallowed Resch Center ice clad in knee pads and flannel for a little intermission entertainment. The concept? Simple. Race to the other end of the ice and try not to slip and die. Fortunately for all 73 people in the arena, Bud Light slipped and died:

And there it is, the sports highlight of January 2nd, 2018, a day when you probably went back to work, watched the President of the United States get in a dick nuclear missile measuring contest with a fellow world leader on Twitter, and were introduced to the term "bomb cyclone" while marooned in some middle American airport due to said "bomb cyclone." So sure, it may not quite stack up to some of the all time rigged mascot moments in sports, like say this...

or this...

...but it is a man in a giant foam costume busting his ass on a sheet of ice, and if not for that, it would have been another pretty grim day here on earth.
