    Save the Budweiser Clydesdales

    My son just came home after taking my grandaughter to see the Budweiser Clydesdales. He was talking to the sales rep from Bud and he told my son that InBev who bought Budweiser is getting rid of the teams. He told Chris that they are down from 12 team to three and by the time this team get back to St. Luis that they will be down to two teams. That ain't right. We need to tell InBev that if they get rid of the clydesdales we'll quit using there product. That ain't right.

    I wondered how long it would actually be before this happened. Hey, they own the company, they can do away with them if they want. Hope in the bottom line, it is the final nail in their coffin. Otherwise, those horses and support teams can't be cheap.

    Shiner, out of Texas. "Every drop of Shiner, is brewed in Shiner". Very good stuff, if you can afford it.

    But ... But ... But without the horses there'd be no reason to watch the super bowl this year..

    I quit using BUD years ago... never really liked the flavor... loved the horses though... my last 10 years of work, I sat at a desk faced a window with a view of the Houston Bud plant... watched the fire that almost burned it down...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
