The end underage drinking in Alabama as we know it??
I saw a story of the news tonight about the legislatures idea to ban keg sales
except for establishments that serve alcohol. Over at Bamacrat
they seem to have sentimentalized the way most of would feel should that happen:
Times have changed. Keg parties
are a rite of passage. There's nothing like
a cool October Friday night before a game at some random house near campus in
Tuscaloosa drinking disgusting Miller Lite keg beer out of a used red Dixie cup
while standing around with a couple of buddies and about 20 people you don't
know. Those times are special. What about the camaraderie of the people around
the keg? The overweight guy with a beard and constant smile and cigarette burned
North Face fleece vest pumping the keg with all his heart? What is he going to
do now?If you take away the keg, you take away the soul of the campus party.
What will these parties be like without the shouts of "Dude, get me a cup," or
"We totally floated this one?"
Will the next generation grow up without knowing how to tap a keg or,
importantly, do a keg stand? Will my son grow up not knowing the anticipation
and promise of a keg party where there are guaranteed to be thirsty freshmen and
sophmore girls in attendance, cups at the ready? Eager to use a wild keg parties
as a scapegoat for youthful indescretions? Gone will be the days of waking up
with that special blistering hangover that only keg beer can give you next to
some half-naked girl that you think is in your math class.
Underage drinking may be wrong, but Keg parties are so right.
