Sunday, June 14th, 2009

Look at these boozehounds playing beer kickball in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

Tecate, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Coors and Miller Genuine Draft are all utilized on the field of play.

(Stupid men. How juvenile! Is this why our grandfathers fought the Second World War, and spent their weekends on the Jersey shore? I think not.)

All the womenfolk were merely spectators at this point in the bucolic bacchanalia. One was seen holding a can of nonregulation Pepsi.

Here are the rules of Beer Kickball Club:

  • Don’t talk about Beer Kickball Club.
  • Don’t talk about Beer Kickball Club.
  • A beer must be in-hand at all times during gameplay (i.e. while fielding and batting).
  • Dropping your beer while batting or running the bases results in an automatic out. This does not apply if your beer is intentionally knocked out of your hand.
  • If a beer is dropped by a fielder, the base runner may not be called out until the fielder reclaims his/her beer.
  • A beer check may be performed on an individual of the opposing team at any time. If the beer is found empty, game play will stop and the player must chug a full beer. If the player with the empty beer happens to be a batter/base runner, the player will be ruled out.
  • What’s next, Beer Hooverball? Heaven Forfend.

    “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion of never playing beer kickball than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

    The Ecologically-Minded Animals of Golden Gate Park

    Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

    Great Blue Heron spotted this waterlogged Coors Light Beer can floating just ‘neath the surface of the Wildfowl Pond at San Francisco Botanical Garden at Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park and then lunged at the Silver Bullet as if it were something edible. Then all the water drained out of it [cue sad trombone]. Poor little feller.

    (Now this was a few years back – could the aluminum can have come from a rowdy pre-ING Group era Bay to Breakers? There’s no way to tell.)

    Maybe we’ll be counting on animals more and more to keep GGP clean?

    Anything’s possible.

    Poor little feller.

    OMG! No More Sparks Brand Alcoholic Energy Drinks for California!

    Thursday, December 18th, 2008

    Well, it had to happen, sooner or later. First, let’s get up to speed about Sparks (whoops, that official MillerCoors website got taken down, try this cached version instead.) So Sparks, created by S.F.-based beverage marketing firm McKenzie River Corporation on 1160 Battery, is:

    “a caffeinated alcohol beverage, one of the first such beverages. Its active ingredients caffeine, taurine, ginseng and guarana are common to energy drinks; however, its additional focus on alcohol is not. Its packaging states a 6% alcoholic content by volume. Its flavor is similar to standard energy drinks such as Red Bull, Monster Energy, and Rockstar, with a tart, sugary taste.”

    Sounds good so far, right? Well maybe not, as some teens run into trouble when they maybe look at Sparks’ “juvenile web site” and then get “hyper and drunk at the same time.”

    Say good-bye to getting loaded and showing off your orange tongue in the minivan:

    Comes now, City Attorney Dennis Herrera, representing the City and County of San Francisco, plus the entire State of California to make a deal with MillerCoors to stop selling Sparks (as it exists today complete with energy stuff plus alcohol) by January 10, 2009. Read all the deets after the jump, or here on CA Attorney General Jerry Brown’s website.

    MillerCoors can take out the caffeine, taurine, etc. if they want to but Sparks, as you know it, will soon be no more. What will the Examiner’s Caffeine Examiner Big Red Boots (srsly, ”Caffeine Examiner“) think aboot that, eh? And don’t even ask what the Examiner’s Civil Liberties Examiner and Ayn Rand fan JD Tuccille (srsly, “JD“) will think about this, because you can already figure it out.

    What will become of the ”Sparks Girls“ and “Sparkitects“?

    Sadly, there’ll be no more orange-lipped photos (aka Sparks Mouth) on Flickr from Sparks virgins and no more Sparks-related sexy MySpace-style poses on the Net. It’s all gone.

    The Center for Science in the Public Interest says YES! And of course, Nintendo’s Mario says “let’s a go!”

    What do you say?

    Details after the jump.
