We’re big fans of beer here at Collision Labs. Stouts, IPAs, Lagers, we’re happy with everything. That said, every great thing has its downsides. When the 1974 Cleveland Indians offered beers to their fans for just a dime, they found quickly what too much of a good thing does to a mob of people.
Since the baseball fans at that game could get hammered for pocket change, they jumped on the opportunity. It actually led to a gigantic stadium brawl where some people were fighting with nunchucks and metal chains.
Due to the violence and general incompetence, Cleveland was actually forced to forfeit the game to the Texas Rangers. While that sounds somewhat terrifying, I think we all wish we could have been there. Because, hey, cheap beer!
