I dont see the problem.......Every rodeo Ive ever been to had beer. Car races....Beer, State fair....Beer, Base ball....Beer.....Football...Beer.....resturant... Beer. Who cares. Its just Beer. If you dont want noe done buy none. If some one gets out of hand there will be someone there to take care of it. Watch the Rodeo and STFU.....lol
I dont personally have a problem with them selling beer. Like you said its sold at other venues. But, i think there should be a way to limit how much someone drinks. For several reasons as hot as it has been, those drinking the beer can easily find themselves being dehydrated. and my biggest concern is there are going to be a few that will overdo it. and you know there will be drunk drivers out there.
Now as the son of an alcoholic, i do take offense with your comment "its just beer" My dad drove drunk, walked home drunk from work, thank god he didnt hit anyone while driving. So to say its just beer is like comparing it to...oh it just like soda. Yes i dont drink alcohol, because of seeing what it did to my dad, thats my choice, just like it is your choice to drink beer, i have no problem with your choice. But remember when you drink you beer at an event your choice is now affecting someone else when you drive home
