It doesn't matter what they say, just put it in a water bottle or a plastic cup, and act like you got some sense. If you act stupid , you may pay the price. I take it in the stadium, and i will continue

Nothing wrong with drinking a few beverages prior to game....just don't go all Miami Dolphin O-Line coach and start doing lines off the tailgate grill lid

I stopped working youth basketball 20 years ago because schools were selling alcohol at their events and I stopped working youth football 10 years ago because the tailgating got out of hand.

Folks should take a conservative approach and just not bring alcohol to high school games, even for parking lot tailgates. There's no real reason to. You can always have a few beers at Roosters or BW3 afterward.

A tailgate shouldn't happen unless alcohol is served.

If you can buy a beer at Disneyland you should be able to drink at a HS tailgate.

I guess 16 year old kids these days have never see anyone drink a beer/alcohol?

Drinking before high school games is what makes the game so much fun.

I'm just surprised we are talking about St X fans drinking to much. They are the best team in Ohio they should be extremely relaxed. However if this was about Moeller drinking to excess totally different story and likely everyone would just give them a pass and understand why.

I guess after this past weekend Big Moe can relax a little and have a few less drinks.

I never said anything about 8 hours. Your little judgmental mind assumed 8 hours? Why don't we take a logical leap (if you can) and say he has not had a drink since the night before? I don't know anyone, personally, that drinks in the morning before work. Let's say 11pm. That would make it 19 hrs. Does that make it ok for you? Sorry I don't judge a person who wants to drink a couple of beers at a tailgate. Especially if they are like most people and don't drink during the work week.

Sounds like someone has a drinking problem.
To someone uneducated it must come across very confusing. Most people don't drink all night before work or even during the work week. So I would guess most people understand what was being written.

You seem to know him pretty well for having just become a Yappi member today.

Moderate Wine consumption reduces inflammation, lowers the risk for heat disease, lowers the risk of some cancers, reduces risk of dementia and can lead to extended life span.

Those are several good reasons

Sex has many health benefits too, but, I'd prefer to keep it away from the parking lots of high school football games too.

Although, the frat boys would probably see it a different way.

The responsible consumption of alcohol is a normal part of many social and family evens.
But a high school football game is a high school event. Do you also imbibe while tailgating before parent-teacher meeting night, a school board meeting, the high school play, a band concert.........?
