Letters: Put a lid on ballpark drinking

Posted: August 06, 2009

THE BUDWEISER Phillies. That should be their new name. After all, they promote it until you're drunk, puke, fight and murder.

The alcoholic consumption in and out of the ballparks is ridiculous. Because of the tragedy recently there ought to be policy changes from the Phillies and the Eagles. There should be no-drinking sections, family days where there is no alcohol sold, and move last call up to the fifth inning. I can't take my 11-year-old son to a game without exposing him to a drunk, F-bomb cursing fan guzzling two beers at a time.

We're not supposed to smoke because we may get cancer from the cigarettes, but go ahead and have a few beers and kill yourself or someone else instantly. It makes no sense whatsoever.
