What Is Your Beer Limit At Sporting Events? (Edited 12/08/09 01:44PM by Seth)
Read the Article: What Is Your Beer Limit At Sporting Events?

I like to go to football, baseball and hockey games and have a good time.  I also have to drive at least 1-2 hours away to do it.   What is your alcohol limit at sporting events?

I don't drink anymore, but when I did my limit depended on my wallet. For $7 a bottle, I was limited to only a few. I used to sneak in a few mini shot bottles and mix them in my beer to get a bigger buzz. I also did this at concerts and any other public events that sell beer.

I don't drink anymore.  But when I did there was no limit!  The more I drank the louder I got!

I attend many sporting events with business colleagues either as a host or a guest. It doesn't look good if I'm plastered by the end of the event. Beyond that, getting hammered loosens lips and that isn't necessarily a good thing especially if you're in some sort of negotiation with said business colleagues. So, two or three is usually the max for me.

I always bring my own flask! Why pay $7 bucks for lousy beer when you can have some good stuff to spice up the game.

The gist of the article:

Australian motorsport fans are ruing militant alcohol consumption guidelines at one of the country's most popular races – after being limited to a mere 24 cans of beer a day.

Police in charge of the Bathurst 1,000 car race in Bathurst, New South Wales, issued the restrictions before the start of the four-day event this Thursday.

Spectators are limited to one 24-can case each of full-strength beer, although if revellers are willing to consume lower-strength alcohol (3.5% abv or less) they will be entitled to a more satisfactory 36 cans

It really depends on the game.  If I'm going to a Cubs game, I take it to the max.  It's what we do at Wrigley.  If I'm going to a Bears or Irish game, it depends who they're playing, but I usually limit myself so I can remember the game.  After all, it ain't cheap to attend big time college football and NFL games.  I have connections at the UC so I get pretty hammered for Bulls and Hawks games.

#11 | 1814 days ago

Since I am usually driving I only have one early in the game.  Otherwise if I am not the driver, I might have 2-3.  Too old to make a fool of myself anymore.  Besides it is more fun to drink a little and watch the other fools get hammered and laugh at them.

 At the prices today, it's two or less.  If I can tailgate, it's probably a 6-pack.  If I'm a guest in a corporate suite, well enough to make it worthwhile, but not enough to get sick, just a little obnoxious.

I'm with you...something I learned some time ago; when the boys used to go to clubs or parties...was to stay somewhat in control. So while all the other dudes were getting wasted and being obnoxious, I was in control and having much better luck with the members of the fairer sex...

What's in a limit??? I usually have a desinated driver. funny though, once i was the desinated driver, well guess what?? I wound up getting beer and rum fed to me, needless to say, i didnt drive home
Limits?  
#27 | 1814 days ago

I always have to travel to go to games.....if I have to drive then I will behave myself. I can't go to a game without having at least a few beers, but I can put down beer in insane quantities and not even feel it.  I do most of my drinking at our fan club bar.......with the crowd we get there, it's usually natural progression to be hammered by the 4th quarter. Pretty much every week I wind up in a scuffle with a bottle of Jaegermeister and countless beers..........no doubt Ed will have my back on that one.

I tote my cooler in, but in the heat of the day , I am sucking enough water to keep a camel hydrated in the desert heat. Once the sun sets, it's on,.. and with a good enough buzz and my driver doing well, I may even buy a $5.00 16 oz or a $20.00 bucket or two, if I run out!

Haven't been anywhere other than Nascar, but it's looking like I may get to go to the Steelers v Miami in January, what, you cant bring a cooler in a FB game? What a Rip!

 Landshark Stadium-   I have never been allowed to bring in even 1 bottle of water   Great place to tailgate, the bad part of the whole venue is no shade   Bring something to keep your seat dry  and a lot of sunscreen

 There was a time when my vocation and partying were going hand in hand, so one or two drinks was necessity of occupational hazard, but that was about 25 years ago, now I am always designated driver with mineral water with me to give company.!
Now my intoxication comes from the thoughts of good minds.!
