Alcohol, Patriotism And The NFL

The Best Hope For Tailgaters

December 22, 2013

I was disturbed at what I recently witnessed at a Buffalo Bills football game. The Bills hosted their cross-state rival, the New York Jets, in Orchard Park, N.....

You can thank the left led by the ACLU for the coarseness of what passes for American culture. You will hear it over and over.."face the reality of change". Like it's a good thing and cannot be stopped, and must be embraced. That's why I hate Democrats.

I think as you get older you do notice bad behavior much more so because you know the outcomes. It has been that way for generations. "Youth is wasted on the young". The bigger problem now is the breakdown of family. No father, no name to take pride in and being raised by a village instead of a set of parents leads to people having nothing to gain by displaying restraint and respect.

Hard to argue with this writer. I suspect the breakdown of the nuclear family has more to do with our de-evolution than alcohol however. On another note I really wish The PJ's fascination with Grove City College (that mecca of clear thinking) would end.

We stopped going to games years ago because of this. It is nothing new.

I would suggest the author write or copy this letter, if he hasn't already, to the Bills organization. I've noticed the same things as the author... the obnoxious drunkenness of the 20 something crowd. But honestly I think it's always been like this and as you get older, you lose your tolerance for that behavior. Based on recent changes and the mass market appeal of the NFL, I think soon they'll be forcing all team organizations to crack down on overt drunkenness.

Put in a stadium with half the number of seats, then double the price of the tickets. That will keep out some riff raff.

It is a sad picture of our times and we may as well get used to it as well as the need for drug use. Well written letter that should be put in a capsule to be opened in 100 years. Wonder what will be the thoughts then?

Unfortunately Lee alcohol has become a socially acceptable form of drug abuse in our Country. Turn on the TV, from Kathy Lee in the morning to Ellen in the afternoon Noon to countless shows in prime time, it's social norm to drink alcohol. Alcohol entered our culture as a safer alternative to water. Now it's a rite of passage to take your first drink. Will that first drink lead to a life dependent on alcohol? It's has become a necessity for entertainment. The sadness comes from living in a world where it takes someone with a PHD or a Master's degree to tell us it's become a problem. Just take a good hard look around, the evidence is everywhere right in front of us.
