Are you a fan of drinking beer and watching sports on TV? You probably have a favorite brew whether it’s a Guinness or light beer. Which sports should you consider watching when you’re getting hammered? Here are some of the spectator sports that cause the most the most beer consumption:
- Boston Sports Fans
Sports are big business in Boston, which is the home to famous pro teams including Boston Celtics and Boston Red Socks.
Did you know that Beantown has been ranked as the United States’ drunkest state? While the stat isn’t technically related tosports, it shows that drinking is a major part of Massachusetts’ largest city.
- Soccer Dads
There’s a lot of talk about soccer Moms, but fathers can be just as dedicated to their kids’ soccer leagues. There’s tons of yelling when parents are standing on the sideline and watching their son or daughter pass the soccer ball to a teammate or try to shoot it into the goal
While soccer is the most popular sport in the world, it’s not everyone’s favorite game. They also might not be a big fan of grade school leagues. What’s one to do? Well, one option is to bring a can of your favorite brewsky to the game. Even if you have to watch an hour-long game at least, you’ll have a tasty beverage to make the experience less dull if soccer’s not your all-time favorite sport.
- Hockey Fans
Hockey is already known for its team-wide fist fights, but are the fans just as rowdy? It’s safe to say that watching a live hockey sport is a completely different experience than watching one on TV since it takes the fun and excitement to the next level.
There’s even been a study that showed hockey fans drink more than all other sports fans.
- Darts Fans
This one might be surprising. Tossing sharp missile-looking objects at a corked board can be tons of fun, but why would dart enthusiasts be heavier drinkers than fans of other sports? It’s linked to people tossing the darts at the board.
There’s even the World Darts Championship, which can be an excuse to tip the cup and even have a blackout any stage of the competition. If you haven’t attended a live dartcompetition, then it could be argued you’re missing out. Even if you’re not a fan, if you enjoy drinking a glass of good beer then why not consider it for your next live sporting event?
- Philadelphia Sports Fans
Any sports fans who throw snowballs at Santa Claus might be candidates for alcoholics. There have been other questionable events. There’s Philly fans doing a corpse dance in the parking lot and Phillies fans who threw batteries at J.D. Drew in 1999.
This isn’t to say that everyone who participated in the questionable behavior was plastered when they took place, and Philadelphia sports fans are some of the most dedicated ones in the sports world. However, there’s a good chance that some of the fans had drunk one too many beers.
