Pelt anyone with a beer can lately?

A follow-up to an earlier item: Officials with the Saskatchewan Roughriders football team in the Canadian Football League have decided to stop selling beer in cans at home football games. Apparently, pelting players from the opposing football team with full beer cans will get that done. Now the beer will be served in plastic cups. One team official had this take:

“We’ve got a younger fan base, which we wanted. We worked to get that demographic. They’re here… Unfortunately some of the things that come with a younger demographic is more drinking and partying.”

The Thirsty Beagle suspects blaming youth is a little short-sighted. Let’s try blaming the fact that there’s nothing much to do in Saskatchewan except get angry and throw beer cans. Just joking! I love those Roughriders!
