Shane Battier gets truck load of free Bud Light


What is the best kind of beer?

Free beer.

And Shane Battier just got a truckload of it. Literally.

Back during the Heat’s 27-game winning streak Steve Aschburner of NBA.com wrote about the superstitions of the Heat players, because if “Bull Durham” taught us one thing it’s that you don’t mess with a streak. Shane Battier was asked about his superstitions during the streak:

“Nope,” Battier said. “Well, I try to drink the same beer – Bud Light – but that’s about it. You never know. I don’t want to chance luck and switch up brands, so I’m staying loyal to Bud Light.”

So the marketing people at Bud Light saw that and delivered 18 pallets of beer — about 1,100 cases — to his house. Which means I need to get invited to Shane Battier’s house because, even that’s not my beer of choice, it would be the best kind of beer. Free.

yeah, i thought shane would have better taste in beer.

good move by bud light, though--got themselves an unofficial spokesman (1100 cases of beer is probably a lot less than it might cost to get an athlete under contract) and made use of the free publicity.

Bud Light is secretly trying to screw the Heat by getting them trashed.

Actually the story behind the beer choice is


Battier said he prefers Bud Light because it was the beer his father drank.

“I wanted to be like my dad,” Battier said. “Being from Michigan, if it was good enough for an assembly-line worker, it’s good enough for me.”
