That's Why We Can't Have Nice Things
Dan and I were recently having a bit of a debate on why the Bears make the vendors carry the cans up and pour them into a plastic cup rather than the far more efficient route of just popping open an aluminum can and handing it to the patron. This would be 10x quicker and also avoid having the vendor having to carry empty cans (and frequently abandon them on the aisle) which gets in everyone's way.
And lo and behold the answer came as if from above. I was watching the one-game baseball playoff where Atlanta got eliminated by the Cardinals when the umpires made a controversial infield fly call late in the game and the fans just showered the field with beer bottles (and water bottles, and anything else at hand). You can see the McCasket's watching this clip and figuring that Drunken Bear fans would definitely hurl any available projectiles. And thus... that's why we can't have nice things.
