NFL’s Bender Buster

The National Football League is implementing plans in order to keep the amount of alcohol consumed down this year in stadiums versus previous years. The NFL is recommending that every stadium implement a 3½ hour limit on tailgating the day of games and the need to add additional security to improve the monitoring of the parking lots on game day. They would also like to see steps taken once fans enter the stadium around the amount of alcohol someone can purchase at any given time. Restricting fans to no more than two 1½-ounce servings of liquor, two 6-ounce servings of wine or two 20-ounce beers each point of sale would go a long ways in the opinion of Milt Ahlerich the league’s senior vice president of security. It was noted that last year you could buy 24 or 28 ounce beers at certain stadiums or you could buy as many as you could hold at a given time. This generally leads to bad experiences for some of the fans when you have cursing, puking, fighting and other drunk related issues occurring. The League is also going to post the message “Fans don’t let fans drive drunk” on almost every beer cup sold this season at the games. While I’m all for having fun at a game I think the steps the NFL is taking are very smart. How many times have you seen a three hundred pound shirtless redneck with a back hairier than a Sasquatch cussing at the opposting team while he is pouring half his Budweiser on the kid in front of him? I know these new rules won’t end the issues totally, but it should slow down rip roaring drunk guy just a bit.

Wonderlic Test Results Are In…

You can officially announce Matthew Stafford as the number one pick in this year’s NFL draft. The Wonderlic test is given at the NFL combine each year and measures problem-solving ability. The test contains 50 questions with a 12-minute time limit and is rarely completed. The best score you can get on the test is 50 and if you score a 20 then you are said to be of average intelligence. Stafford scored the highest score on this year’s Wonderlic test of any other quarterback with an impressive 38. USC’s Mark Sanchez scored 28 and Kansas State’s Josh Freeman scored a 27. Other scores were Maryland cornerback Kevin Barnes with an astounding 41, Texas Tech’s Michael Crabtree with a 15, USC linebacker Rey Maualuga scored a 15, Maryland receiver Darius Heyward-Bey scored a 14, Percy Harvin of Florida scored a 12, and North Carolina’s Hakeem Nicks scored a 11 which is one above literacy.
