What happens if you own a bar, but your football team sucks and you can’t get anyone to come watch your games? You offer free beer during game time. No, this isn’t happening in Louisville, this is actually for UCF fans in Orlando.
George O’Leary’s Knights are off to an atrocious 0-4 start, falling to FIU on a blocked field goal and Furman on a 55-yard yard field goal. The Basement bar used to be poppin’ when the Knights were winning the Big East and going to Fiesta Bowls, but now they can’t get anyone to show up. Their solution — free beer from kickoff the the final horn. It sounds ludicrous, but if I was living in Orlando I know where I’d be this Saturday — watching UCF take on 1-2 Tulane.
Louisville bars thought about doing the same after they lost to FIU a few years back, but there’s not enough beer in the world.
