South Siders refuse to be outbuzzed.
The White Sox debuted a new outdoor beer garden, Monday outside Gate 5 of U.S. Cellular Field.
While Cubs fans might have a reputation of being drunk and disorderly (and delusional?), Sox fans seem to be known for their rough-and-tumble ways. Do we really need to provide either with more alcohol?
The beer garden will be open on game days to all fans over 21, with or without game tickets. Beer, wine, soda, and water will be served at the new establishment, affectionately called TBD's.
"TBD's will be a great place for fans to meet friends before and after the game," Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing, said in a press release. "This fan amenity also will serve as a place to watch games with other Sox fans."
TBD's? Ten Business Days? Totally Bad Design? The Baseball Drunks?
It turns out TBD stands for To Be Determined, as the Sox look for a sponsor for the beer garden, according to the Southtown Star.
Given the local rivalry with the Cubs, maybe the Sox should approach one of Captain Morgan's competitors about a potential sponsorship. Or they could play nice and make an offer to a producer of cola, a popular rum companion.
Either way, it's "to be determined" if this is a good idea.
