The 19th comment in the contest was left by JJ, whose story brought back the good old days:
Coors Light...still the choice in fact, although my dad's tastes have change slightly for the better. I think there's a mild appreciate for flavor now; partially due to his interest in wine and its complexity, I think he's taken a similar fondness to some (lighter) craft beers.Thanks to everyone for playing, and to the folks at Yesterbeer for the prize donation.
I remember on a canoe trip, about 12 years old, getting to have a cold coors like, sipping on that grainy, bitter can of (now known as) swill, thinking "why do people like this crap?" But I wanted to be cool enough to finish it off. It wasn't until later that I realized it can give you a buzz -- clearly the reason people drank beer at all.
I can't quite fully grasp the logic behind outlawing driving with a beer...If I were drunk, I wouldn't have a beer in my hand -- who wants that kind of attention? I would only drive with a beer if I knew it was my first or second of the day, to make sure that even though I might get fined (now $500 - $1000; I certainly wouldn't blow beyond a .08. Admittedly, it really isn't worth the financial risk, though occasionally a road soda hits the spot.
