    Teetotalism refers to either the practice of, or the promotion of, complete personal abstinence from alcoholic beverages. A person who practices (and possibly advocates) teetotalism is called a teetotaler (also spelled teetotaller; plural teetotalers or teetotallers) or is simply said to be teetotal.

    Don't act like I'm the only one who had to look it up

    Tailgating but not drinking is going to be hard for me. Not sure how I'm going to handle it since my family and friends like to get there really early to drink. Guess I'll be drinking a lot of Diet Pepsi.

    Re: Pollard on KXNO

    The one thing I actually LIKE about not having beer sold in the stands is that it gives a lot of people time to sober up during the game. People that really NEED to sober up.

    If drunk driving accidents increased even slightly after beer sales were approved in JT, it would be a PR fiasco.

    We are a fan base that is known for and takes pride in our tailgating tradition. That includes drinking copious amounts of beer before the game. Some of the schools that have approved beer sales in the stadium are much less active while tailgating. These are fans that show up to the game and just go into the stadium. They can probably handle a few 8 dollar beers and be find going home.

    You add 2, 3, or 4 beers on top of what many ISU fans drink in the parking lot pre-game, and you end up with a lot more drunk people after the game.

    We're not talking about tailgating. We're talking about beer sales INSIDE JT. No one will police your tailgate; you're safe! :)

    His concern is being around so much alcohol after he stopped drinking. That's what his username is all about. He kept his secret ID confidential (and wisely so).


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Right...because people won't be able to tell which teams are playing from the score ticker, the markings on the field, and the announcers. Bogus argument.

    Besides, sometimes it would be nice to not be recognized...

    I am so sorry! I didn't even notice your name when I responded.

    Yes, I remember your post...and from the sounds of it, your pledge is holding firm. Well done!

    People are free to do what they want. It's not my thing, and it looks more pleasant to me to just stay home from the events where people are more inclined to drink heavily. That's not my world, so it's an easy choice.
    Some venues have started having "family sections", which prohibit alcohol sales, I believe. I'm very supportive of that because it seems like a good way to create an enjoyable game experience for people with varied preferences. I've even seen ballparks experiment with "pet sections" for patrons who want to bring their dogs.

    Re: Pollard on KXNO

    I am fine with no beer from a game day standpoint, especially with the ability to go out and put one or two down at halftime.

    I just think we are missing a huge potential revenue stream.

    Wow, Baylor really took USC to the woodshed last year, didn't they?

    Re: Pollard on KXNO

    I am a teetotaler, but I really don't care if people are drunk around me, I find them somewhat entertaining. So far no one has thrown up on me, that might change my mind about how I feel. It does get annoying when someone starts the same story for the 10th time though.
