Jurickson Profar hit a walkoff homer last night. Jurickson Profar got a beer shower from his teammates afterward. Jurickson Profar is not yet old enough to drink. But it’s all good!

“Well, he didn’t drink any,” [Joe] Nathan said. “He just wore it. Clothes aren’t under age.”

Thank heavens. Because I for one would be shocked — shocked! — to hear of a 20 year-old consuming beer. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go look at photos from my college days in which all of us freshman and sophomores were filling Solo cups with punch and apple cider and such.

    Same thing happened with Xander Bogaerts when the Sox clinched. I thought I’d hear a lot more about it from the Boston Media. Apparently beer is ok when you win a division, but when you are winning a division by 9 games in September it’s not ok.

      BOS also one of the biggest college town, Fenway is literally surrender by colleges. Bogaerts fits in just fine.

        Autocorrect strikes again (I hope).

      Bostonians complaining about drinking, let alone underage drinking? What kind of bizzaro world is this?

    GOP with their stated belief in less government should include a stand against age related alcohol prohibition in their party plank. There is no reason for government to make criminals out of people for having a beer. If your behavior after drinking negatively affects others then we have other laws to remedy that behavior. However, it is senseless to make drinking in an of itself a crime.

      …and, as alcohol is more addictive and harmful than a shockingly number of illegal drugs, they should probably advocate for ending the War on Drugs as well. This will never happen.

      I’ve been saying this for a long time. It’s stuff like this that drove me from GOP to third party.

      The government also expects 18 year old’s to register so they can fight a war, thereby potentially using a firearm to kill people to protect this country. But you better not drink any alcohol until you’re 21!

        Well, in all fairness, they did try it the other way.

      • blacksables - Sep 27, 2013 at 5:17 PM

        Actually, while I appreciate the point, it isn’t exactly true. Only male’s have to register for the draft, while women are exempt.

        The same women who demand the same rights and privileges as men without having to fulfill the same requirements.

        Apparently, discrimination is okay if it’s biased against men. Because the women who claim they should be eligible for any job in the military still claim they shouldn’t be eligible for the draft.

        Strange days indeed.

        sables, did you just wake up cranky from a nap?

      • blacksables - Sep 27, 2013 at 5:44 PM

        Are you saying I’m wrong?

      • nothanksimdriving123 - Sep 27, 2013 at 7:19 PM

        No sables, I am saying you are wrong. The law exempting women from the draft (which we don’t actually have right now anyway; men must register for IF we ever reinstitute a draft) was passed by an overwhelmingly male Congress. Had we ratified the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s, women would most likely now be subject to registering too, but men voted it down by a couple of votes in the last few states needed, cheered on by some extremist conservative women and men. I’d guess that most modern women would favor sharing in both the rights and responsibilities of complete legal equality.

      • blacksables - Sep 27, 2013 at 9:43 PM

        Well, no, I’m not wrong. You are. Women don’t have to register for the draft. That’s a fact. Men do. That’s a fact. Women are now allowed to fulfill combat roles in the military. That’s a fact. They still don’t have to register for the draft. That’s a fact. Men do. That’s a fact.

        You’re too fucking stupid to read what I wrote and understand it. That’s a fact.

    Oh noes!

    You’d think the Rangers would remember the Josh Hamilton treatment and celebrate with ginger ale or whatnot.

    An underage beer bath? Whatever will we tell the children???

    THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!

      Hey, go stand over there with this cup and catch some for your Aunt Laura.

    ATF is currently putting together a strike team to raid the Rangers complex. With any luck, the Nolan Ryan will use George W. Bush as a human shield.

    Yeah. Here in the Ol USA, you can serve your nation in the Military. But don’t have any alcohol. Thanks M.A.D.

    Oh mah werd, is anyone seriously afraid he’s going to lick his clothes or something and it will get him plastered?

    My Solo cups were in fact filled with punch and cider……along with a nice amount of vodka or whatever else might be around. Love those red Solo cups….
