Gee333 said:Ya know... if I could get someone to sponsor me there'd probably be a lot worse sponsors I could think of than Michelob. Plus I'm sure there are several athletes that are sponsored by companies with products they don't really use, drink, eat, etc.
Hell, my softball team was sponsored by a gun shop! You pay my bill and I'll pimp your product.
Plus, out where I am I've seen Michelob sponsor several cycling events. They seem to be already involved in cycling and just stepped it up a notch.
So really, what's the big deal?
Bala Verde said:I thought I read somewhere that he also wanted the Colorado Coors Classic back. Isn't coors also a beer? Can he reconcile promoting both the event and another competing beer brand?
He is growing bigger than Inbev.
ggusta said:For me, I always thought Michelob as one of the finer 'mass market' (low priced) beers. Lance endorsing them just lowers my estimation of them FWIW. But the mich ultra is for fat (read: middle aged) guys or neurotic thin women who are trying to cut carbs and still enjoy something that tastes a little like beer.
For my money, I'd rather drink a full blooded Mich than these low carb or light beers.
The deal is good for Lance (mo' $ mo' $ mo ' $) and inbev or whoever now owns an-busch. He is still a but!t hole. wuddever.
As for coors, this will probably only intensify their desire to have him associated with their race. To that end, in an indirect way, it's good for cycling.
Hugh Januss said:I would rather drink water from the fishtank than any of the insipid Michelob products.
Please clarify. Earlier I was PM'd that you would rather drink TFF's bathwater than anything. Don't start waffling with this fishtank talk.
Hugh Januss said:Why not, your mom is a fine looking woman. I heard she's only a few tricks away from getting those teeth fixed too.
But seriously lets keep on topic.
