Beer, Soccer, and Sandy

This Deseret News article asks the question: Will (soccer) stadium sell beer? Dave Checketts said: "I have a problem with the notion that people can get drunk at a game and get behind the wheel and drive home. Are we going to sell alcohol at the stadium? I don't have the answer to that today." For Dave Checketts, former president of Jazz, future owner of NHL team and former president of Madison Square Garden to say drunk driving is making him think about not allowing beer at soccer games is positiveley laughable. Checketts didn't answer the question because it may not be his decision. It could be a political one and it may have been already made. There is already speculation that the sweetheart deal Sandy has passed off to RSL came with strings attached such as a ban on alcohol sales.

that is too funny. I agree with Dexter even though I don't drink. 3 hrs in Sandy would drive anyone to start drinking.

If you look at Tom Dolan’s donation list, you might see the nice sized chunk from Anheiser/Bush. I think that beer sales are pretty much a forgone conclusion.
