That's Why We Can't Have Nice Things

Isn't it an embarassment to humanity that they have to give us plastic beer bottles at sporting events and concerts? That we can't be trusted with the big boy glass bottles?

But then again, what's the point of using glass at all instead of plastic on all beer? Before the 20oz soda came around (don't get me started on Shaq's involvement in the promotion of the Pepsi longneck bottle "Shaq pack" and how I blame him for the extra 4oz of backwash we're stuck with today), soda used to come in glass 12oz bottles. 

I don't really know what my point is here, other than that I'm still pissed off at Shaq about the whole oversized drink thing.  I'm 5'7", I don't need as much soda as Shaq to quench my thirst, and by the time I get 16oz into a 20, it's flat and warm.  16.9oz/500mL is the perfect size - that's what they sell in Europe where people definitely are more likely to be throwing beer bottles in an unruly hooliganish manner at a sporting event. 


Eff you, Shaq:
