OK, so they’ve been together for a long time, but that’s not stopping me! So the Big 12 is holding its football media days today, tomorrow and Wednesday in Dallas. The Thirsty Beagle has a question: If a conference holds media days and The Great Tim Tebow doesn’t attend, does anyone really care? Seriously, I once watched Tim Tebow play on television, and my life is truly at least 74 percent better because of it. In fact, Tim Tebow, Tim Tebow, Tim Tebow, and then Tim Tebow and Tim Tebow. OK!!! We all get it! All national and SEC football media love Tim Tebow! I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE! I’m not saying I want Mike Gundy’s hair to catch on fire while he’s at the podium, but let’s all hope something interesting enough happens at Big 12 media days so that every link on ESPN’s football page isn’t about He Who Shall Not Be Named and the near-paralyzing intrigue of the SEC conference.
Meanwhile, in beer news, a lot of interesting stuff is going on:
-President Obama and the police officer and Harvard scholar in the recent arrest controversy might be getting together for a beer at the White House.
-Scottish officials are condemning an 18.2 percent beer, saying the brewers are being irresponsible.
-A Portland, Ore., brewery is fighting a federal government water-quality regulation because it says the move could adversely impact the taste of beer.
-Germans may be tuning out David Hasselhoff, I mean, may be tuning out beer, according to this report. We all know they can’t quit David Hasselhoff.
-And finally, beer sales nosedived during the lead up to July 4, compared to the same period last year. Bad news for beer companies, but good news for you, because “Several industry executives said they predict sharp discounting as the most likely immediate step.”
