I was able to enjoy the last few minutes.... 8)

What is with Manning and Budweiser?  I thought it was odd in the post game
when he said he "was going to go drink a lot of Budweiser".

Then, I was outside, and heard him again - this time on the radio with another reporter - and he says
"I am going to drink a lot of beer, Budweiser"

comma Budweiser?  Clearly seemed like he was getting paid to say that after the game. :-X
Wow.
Apparently getting hammered on crap beer is better than a trip to Disney World...

I will say the "a lot of beer" part kinda bugged me. How many kids are listening to him say that? Something like "I've got some Bud on ice for the celebration" would have been perfectly fine and conveyed the same product placement.
I think with fewer people drinking lousy beer Bud etc. needs the kids to know that its important for them to drink a lot of their product. While smaller breweries can rely on moderate but discerning drinkers to pay more per unit, companies like A/B, Miller etc. rely on millions of people becoming alcoholics.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

Wow.

A friend told me that he has a couple (spelling edit day after SB:) Anheuser distributorships.  If that's the case, it's still lousy to see a parting shot commentary stooping to self-promotion.  Or maybe he's been waiting for the game to drink his favorite beer.  At least he didn't say I can't wait to drink a bunch of Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill.   ;D

Supposedly not "paid", but he is the owner of some distributor ships.  Still a violation to mention an alcoholic beverage by an "active" player, so maybe he will be curing that with a retirement announcement?

A bit of a marathon last night - just 5 of us = two couples and me but ended up doing some keg pours and then bottle shares, including 14 different New Glarus beers (12oz), some other craft beers, and from my cellared homebrews a sour worted Oud Bruin (M. Tonsmeire recipe), BVIP (Denny's recipe), and Pannepot Belgian Dark Strong.

Although I had high expectations I wasn't very thrilled with most of the New Glarus beers.
