And what about people who drink before the game? Are you suggesting we go back to prohibition? Breathlyzers at the gates?

As a brewers fan, I used to need my alcohol to make it through the games...

But seriously, there is so much drinking in the parking lots that stopping the sale at games will just lead to increased binge drinking at tailgates, which is much more of a health risk.

I would love to see athletes kick the crap out of all the fans that go on the field, there hasn't even been criticism of a footballer laying out some drunk fool that runs on the field. It usually gets a standing ovation from the crowd.

As a Brewers fan you are required to have a beer when you get your ticket scanned... O:)

Really? Not challenging you but that has not been my experience. That would be dang near $50.

Maybe it's just a Boston thing because that's definitely how I see it happen at Fenway, but everyone else says differently.

Boston fans needed to be drunk to watch them play for a long long time. ;7

This question is so stupid that it has absolutely no place in any discussion anywhere.

I be very surprised to ever see this happen. Too much money involved in it...between sponsership and sales.

Wouldn't bother me to see it happen though.
