Shotgunning Red Bull Is Extreme!

Monday, November 24, 2008


I don't know how many of you realized this, but the MLS Cup was awarded yesterday to the Columbus Crew (I had no idea either), and that's where this craaaaazy video comes from. Alexi Lalas had promised to shotgun a Red Bull if the New York Red Bulls made the playoffs and Rob Stone made sure he paid up before the game on Saturday....



I knew Soccer was lame, but this takes that theory to a whole 'nother level. It also took Lalas about five minutes to "gun" that think and it's about half the size of a regular beer can. They must not have been big drinkers at Rutgers University in the 90s.

Actually, it looks like he gunned the big can that Foudy gave him. Those things are like 16 oz. (more?) I think.

Please don't talk about Julie Foudy's big can.

Please don't base your soccer judgements on MLS, let alone anything to do with Alexi Lalas.

Oh and Lalas' Red Bull shotgun was much better than his shotgun wedding with Becks

I am glad to know nothing about soccer, but was that the GEICO Caveman holding up the cup in the top photo?

I'm just curious how one clown's decision to do something means "soccer" is lame.

Some pinheads will look for any excuse to blame everything from global warming to riots on the fact that soccer is "boring."

So don't watch. We don't need you. Buh-bye now.

(That said, yes, Lalas is a tool and that was a pretty dumb stunt, but it doesn't mean "soccer is lame" any more than Don Cherry's technicolor dreamcoats mean "hockey is lame.")

Julie Foudy is hot, but yes soccer is stupid.

Yep it was the big can, and don't blame the sport for some stupid Red Bull promo. Congrats to Frankie & Columbus!

All Keystone Light, all the time, so close enough.
