Alcohol and Sunday NFL Football
NFL Sunday is a big drinking day for any Alcoholic. Watching the games on TV at home or in your favorite sports bar, an Alcoholic can drink the hang-over away from Saturday night and it is okay, considered normal behavior. The games have just started as I write this post and I am waiting for the first Beer Commercial. Drinking on a Sunday is not normal behavior, it is Alcoholic behavior. NFL Football Sunday has become an excuse for any Alcoholic to drink all day and no one will think there must be something wrong. Why? Because most fans are drinking while they watch the games. We have ( 10 ) ten hours of pro-football ahead of us. The games start here on the East Coast where I am at one-o-clock. The late games run from ( 4 ) four-o-clock to a little after ( 7 ) seven pm. Then we will have “Sunday Night” football and those Alcoholics out there can keep drinking until ( 11 ) eleven pm at night today. If drinking all day, and finishing off the day with a night of NFL Football watching the late night game in your local sports bar is not enough, the real Alcoholics out there are secretly thinking, “thank God” a reason to drink all day long – the NFL – this is great!.
Now don’t get me wrong, the NFL is not the culprit here but they do have a small part that they play. The constant Beer commercials, mixing in truck commercials, it is all part of the culture around being a “fan” and watching all the games from the early afternoon to almost mid-night on Sunday. It’s another day and night Alcoholics will be drinking and out on the road driving, yes, drinking and driving – driving drunk. Here we are 25 minutes into the first NFL game and the first “Truck” commercial. The “Beer” commercials are soon to follow. There will be Budweiser, Miller Lite, and Coors beer, a big NFL sponsor. Coors is such a big sponsor of the NFL and ESPN highlights of the games, that they have ESPN in re-capping the games highlights, what they call. “The Coors – Hard Cold facts!”
Tell me it’s okay to drink all day watching NFL Sunday football from early afternoon till late night. Any Alcoholic will tell you, how can I watch the games without drining a few beers. Kind of like an addicted gambler who has to bet on the games to make them more exciting. So when you are out today, out on the road driving doing normal Sunday things alone or with your family, please, please, please, be aware there are Alcoholics who have been drinking all day long, being loyal fans of the NFL, going through their Sunday ritual of drinking and watching their teams play at their local Sports bar.
Note : End of first quarter and First Beer Commercial: 1:40 pm East Coast time.
