Shoutout To This Child Who Was Casually Drinking A Coors Light Tall Boy At The Pirates Game Yesterday
Irresponsible. Reckless. Dim-witted. There's no shortage of words you could use to describe the type of dad that's going around buying tall boys for short boys that are about a decade away from carrying an all-you-can-drink card in the form of an ID.
Now, I won't use any of those words, because the visual of a kid picking up a beer that's bigger than his bicep behind a graphic for a youth-centric promotion that's also providing the background noise is too perfect for me to worry about how he's being raised. Personally, I wouldn't drop $12 bucks on an adult beverage for my hypothetical pre-teen, but if you're going to be the cool, involved parent that serves a minor so as to better monitor his drinking (5-7 years too early) then you might as well do it when there are older women around for him to impress. I think we can all agree it's wrong to intoxicate your child when his learner's permit is still a pipe dream, but this is probably the safest way to do so. Feet kicked up, watching baseball, and sipping piss water that even an 80 pound human being would struggle to get drunk on? Probably not what the Pirates had planned for 'Kid's Day', but it is kind of endearing that this little dude wanted to reenact how his dad spends 'Father's Day'.
