So, this happened over the weekend. Bud Light "surprised" Shane Battier with a truckload of beer for drinking its swill during the Heat's winning streak.
"My father always had a beer and I want to be just like my dad," Battier said on Monday. "There’s nothing wrong with Bud Light. That’s the assembly workers drink and that’s what I am."
Definitely not a surprise, but it makes for a good story. And, hey, beers on Shane!
***The Republican party, which apparently already has huge aspirations for Battier immediately upon retirement, approves this message.
OK, we're kidding ... maybe. Definitely not kidding when I say Anheuser Busch totally stuck it to Milwaukee-based Milwaukee Brewing Company with this one. Oh, those crazy beer wars.
