If beer is proof that God loves us, then God must really love the Chicago Bears. Bears fans tapped Nashville bars dry of beer as they celebrated the team’s 52-20 pounding over the Tennessee Titans. The 7-1 Bears were cheered on by a LP Field filled with over 60% Bears fans who drank the city known for whiskey and rye dry of beer. Bears head coach Lovie Smith even called LP Field, “Solider Field South.”
NBC Chicago reported: “The Paradise Park Trailer Resort, for one, had no bottled beer left by dinner time Sunday. Whiskey Bent Saloon had two brands left.”
It comes as no surprise that sports fans like to drink, in a study by the University of Minnesota, 48% of fans attending a sporting event drink, and that football is the second most popular sport to drink at behind baseball games.
