Not to be outdone...

The Beer Lobby shows state pride with Tennessee Beer, complete with Vol Orange packaging. Even just a few short years ago we lived in a world without modern conveniences like this. I don't even want to think about an era like that.

Only the Finest

I was doing some tandem web surfing this weekend (you know, 2 people, 2 computers and a lot of "Look at this, look at that") and ended up on the Tennessee Titans website, which features a link to their cheerleader's site. What kind of information would a cheerleading site have, other than pictures? "Something great" I thought and was compelled to click the link.

I figured Bios would be the place to go, and I was right. The bios contain answers to several questions, including "What would you take with you if you were stranded on a desert island" (or something along those lines). Some notable responses out of the 31 Bios:

  • 7 (22%) said Cell Phone/Smartphone. Reception and power will be easy to come by?
  • 7 (22%) said some form of Other People. To share in your misery?
  • 4 (14%) said iPod or Computer. Right.
  • 3 (10%) said Chapstick (ok) or Lip Gloss. LIP GLOSS?

There were some other doozies including a Genie and a bottomless Coke well. But most importantly only 2 Titans Cheerleaders would think to bring a boat.

Legitimate Beer Distribution

Recently, Fat Tire and 1554 were made available here in Tennessee. I'm not a fanboi, but I enjoy both occasionally. The more Northwest Microbrews I can get in Tennessee the better. Anyway, they are only available in 22oz bottles, as pictured.

I guess the recent availability is not at all mob related. At all.

As you can see from my lighter...

Does anything say State Pride (...yeah) like a State-branded disposable cigarette lighter?

Answer: excluding State-branded meth labs, breathalyzers, and handguns, No. Nothing.
